That pretty much confirms that they aren't legit books, then.  JKR is actively involved with one of the two sites.  (I don't remember which off-hand.)

After all the brouhaha, there is no way in Hell that she'd turn around and Kindlize her books without saying something about it.

If you hadn't read them before, Know that the should be read in order, if you don't they may not make sense, and you miss a lot.

Does amazon pay attention to books that are publishes on kindle or can just anyone post a book in kindle format without regards to copyright laws.

Errr.... I really am too busy to go research this at Leaky Cauldron or Muggle.net. Has anybody tried yet?
I didn't go over those sites with a fine-toothed comb, but nothing jumps out in the way of some Kindle announcement.

Of course, to us this would be BIG news. To others--to the nonkindleized--this would be a small blip on the radar screen. So who knows? I'm expecting to see a big, blinking "Now available on the Kindle!" announcement, but to the website updater, this might not merit such a thing.

But you'd think there would be a general e-book release, not just on Kindle, unless Amazon negotiated something specifically and/or exclusively. That seems unlikely.

My feeling is that these are not entirely legal copies and I won't be surprised if they come down pretty soon.

But I don't know anything.

I have been looking around and I see nothing to indicate any official ebook release anywhere. :-[

To the rabid HP fans at those two sites, there is no such thing as a "small blip on the radar screen." ;)

How about beach front land in Arizona?
Well, tomorrow it will either be gone or cost a lot more!

In my very humble opinion, you guys are nuts. There is no way Amazon is going to put an illegal copy on their site, and there is no way someone is going to upload a copy to their computers and have it fully integrated into their whole process (listings, searches, whispernet, etc). No way, no how. It is totally legit.

Yes, tomorrow they'll either be gone, or they'll be at the top of the K-bestsellers. I've gotten rather tired of the Twilight series being at the top, and I've read those even. LOL We need something to shake things up...and something is definitely getting shaken right now.

If this is real (and I'm not saying it isn't), I'd rather wait for the bundle anyway, but if it isn't legit: (insert scandal here).
