It would seem to me that if it is an illegal copy, it could vanish from your Kindle when you turn your Whispernet on, and you won't get a refund of your $3.12. Of course, that's just my speculation, who knows what will really happen.

Would be unfair of Amazon not to offer refunds though. A lot of unsuspecting people aren't going to realize they're illegal copies. Several of us were even fooled at first.

They told me to "go ahead and enjoy" the books. I never even finished the second one so that's not gonna happen. I told them that I'd understand perfectly if they were to disappear from my Kindle. He said that was unlikely.

(Totally Off Topic: While I was on the phone I mentioned that I had problems with reading the screen in direct sunlight; I'll have a new Kindle on Tuesday :). (and I don't even like direct sunlight!)

Has anybody checked leakycauldron.com or muggle.net?  Surely one if not both sites will have some mention of it if JKR has changed her mind and Kindlized her books.

Again, I'd do it myself if I weren't at work.

Shouldn't there be more fanfare with a HP release for the Kindle? The marketing potential for such a release could be incredible. It just seems odd to make the last two books available as if at random, on some inconsequential day.

Heck, if U2 can have a special edition Ipod, why not a special edition Potter Kindle with the series preloaded and extra this-n-thats: a marauder's map screensaver for one.  :p  If JKR has indeed authorized the release of this series for the Kindle and other ereaders, this seems like a lackluster way to go about it, kwim?

Market test, maybe? Or accidental release, if it is still in the works and someone hit the wrong button? Just trying to be optimistic...I hate to think I may have just bought bootlegs, but I won't give them up!

At first I also thought it was a marking test, but if was you would think they would have post the first two books and not the last two.

Yeah, it could be a marketing test.

It just seems like the whole set would be released on Harry Potter's birthday or something. LOL And there'd be a big announcement (at which time the Kindle would be on backorder for 37 weeks, naturally).  ;D

Errr.... I really am too busy to go research this at Leaky Cauldron or Muggle.net. Has anybody tried yet?
I quickly check both but I didn't see anything.
Sorry Jim

Forgot to say I also quickly check her official site, didn't see anything there either
