Kids these days have it sooo easy as Potterheads. If you were an early聽Harry Potter-adopter,聽you had to wait months 聽鈥 no, YEARS 鈥 聽for each new book or movie. The anticipations was almost too much. But today鈥檚 youths will never know the struggle because they have it all 鈥 house themed books,聽cosmetic lines based on the characters and聽J.K. Rowling鈥檚 Twitter account聽(she really is an international treasure). And now first time readers get magical interactive Harry Potter books聽for the聽iPad!聽The best part? These ebooks are available on iTunes聽($10) for a little more than a galleon.


You heard that right.聽Apple teamed up with J.K. Rowling to make some seriously awesome versions of the HP books. This series聽will come with聽moving pictures (like ACTUAL wizard books) and extra details hidden in the text. For example, not only will you get to see a Howler come to life in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,聽you鈥檒l also get to scroll over annotations written by Jo filled with great insider info about certain plot points (i.e. the backstory of the Daily Prophet you never knew you needed). There鈥檚 also a way to play an interactive game of quidditch!


Imagine seeing the聽half blood prince started randomly start writing notes in your book? This could be just the聽tip of the iceberg for interactive ebooks. What鈥檚 next? A Lord of the Rings ebook with an interactive map or a feature that lets YOU throw the ring int Mt. Doom? Be still our nerdy hearts!

Happy reading!
