amazon harry potter tease 361x285If you own an Amazon Kindle and you’d love nothing better than to be able to read the entire Harry Potter collection while on the go, you’re probably painfully aware that Harry Potter’s author, J.K. Rowling, has been holding out on releasing her books in electronic format on websites like Amazon or Barnes & Noble, choosing instead to release them via her own website, Pottermore. Well the good news is that if you were hoping for her to change her mind, it looks like your wish might be coming true. Spotted on Amazon’s website is the screenshot pictured above and while it did not explicitly state Harry Potter, the owl along with the phrase, “Wizardry is on the way” does not leave much to the imagination.

When asked about it, an Amazon spokeswoman declined to comment but stated that we should stay tuned for an upcoming announcement. If you’d rather not buy the book from Pottermore and go through the hassle of transferring it onto your e-reader device, we guess you’ll just have to wait for the official announcement from Amazon, so be sure to stay tuned for updates!

Update - Yup it turns out the speculation was right on the mark! Amazon has since released a statement claiming that all seven Harry Potter books will be arriving on the Amazon Kindle Owners’ Lending Library on the 19th of June. Head on over to Amazon for the press release for all the details.
