Poll: Will you buy 'Harry Potter' e-books?

Harry Potter Sorcerer

In 2007, the publishing industry was rocked by two colossal events: the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the debut of Amazon’s first Kindle e-reader. Nearly five years later, these phenomena will finally collide – as of today, all seven of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels are available in e-book form.

But here’s the potential fly in the Amortentia: HP fans already own copies of the septet. Heck, because I have two siblings and we all hate sharing, there are no fewer than three copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince floating around my childhood home. Audio versions of each book in the series – recorded by Jim Dale in the U.S. and Stephen Fry in the U.K. – have also been available for years at this point. Do Potterheads feel the need to own the series in up to three formats?

Shelf Lifers, I want to know if you’re planning on stocking your Kindle, Nook, iPad, or generic knockoff e-device with Sorcerer’s Stones, Prisoners of Azkaban, and Goblets of Fire – or if you’ve already got enough Harry in your life. Take to the poll below to share your thoughts.
