Google Books has confirmed that they will be an ebook hub for the Harry Potter books through the Harry Potter reading website Pottermore. Customers will be able to buy copies of the ebooks and then read them on any Google Book device, such as the Nook, Story HD and the Google Book internet platform. This is big news for the search engine giant as it gives them a major lead over their competition, including Amazon.
Oooo, Amazon got burned! They were all like, "J.K. Rowling, let's light the eliterary world on fire with your $15 billion dollar empire. Light it with a Kindle." And J.K. was all, "Eh, you sell weird stuff and are all groady and old. I like Google now. He's hot and has a big search engine and is all about not being evil." And Amazon was like, "Rowling, why are you doing this to me! You are tearing me apart!" And then Amazon shot itself and a kid o.d.'d or something.
