It's only around $50 for the whole series, which isn't bad at all in my opinion. All the hardcover books I have probably cost four times that.
Guys, this summer is no longer going to be productive in any shape or form. The last time I read the whole series must've been when the 7th book came out. So this summer I have a date with my Nook and 4,182 pages of Harry Potter.
Still, the announcement is bittersweet. When I first started reading HP way back in the 2nd grade, I never imagined that by the time I was in college I'd be reading the series on a screen. It's strange, because I have such fond memories of reading the big ol' hardcover things. It was so special to hold the physical books at midnight the day they were released, smell the pages, and read the synopsis on the inside cover.
Embarrassing throwback time: my sister and I for one of the midnight book releases EONS ago.
However, the Nook versions are going to be so much more convenient for me. Let's face it: at 20, you don't want to be seen reading a Harry Potter book, so I can read the things unbeknown to others on my ereader. Plus, the books are freakin' tomes. My backpack is heavy enough, thank you very much. There is no room for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in it.
If I have kids, I'm definitely going to introduce them to Harry Potter the old fashioned way with the hardbacks. However, the ebooks are a perfect solution for where I am right now in my life.What's everybody's opinions on the ebook versions?
