Poll: Will you buy ‘Harry Potter’ e-books?

28 Mar


From EW’s Shelf Life column. I’ve already bought all of the books a couple of times now and I was thinking of re-reading them, but I’m on the fence about whether I will actually buy the ebooks.

      It’s an incredible series. But I’ve bought them several times already. I’m looking into the library editions.
