The next chapter of Harry Potter

As Harry Potter continues to take over the world (not a bad thing) this is the latest product I am excited about, the new iBooks that allows you to dive deeper into the magical wizarding world of the Harry Potter Universe.βš‘οΈπŸš‚πŸ€πŸΎπŸ“•πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“™πŸ““πŸ“šπŸ“–

Harry Potter Exclusive Enhanced Editions can be bought from iTunes for Β£6.99 and despite already having a copy or two of each book, I have to admit I am tempted. Surely reading Harry Potter counts as education and so this is like investing in a textbook (that’s my justification anyway).

Thirteen years since the publication of the Philosopher’s Stone and eight years since the final Deathly Hallows, this seems to be the first reinvention of the books.

“BUT HARRY POTTER DOES NOT NEED REINVENTING!” I hear you cry!

Quite so, but this electronic version doesn’t try to update the book or change anything, they simply add the world of HP and help you fall further under its spell.

New illustrations and animations bring that world we all secretly wish we lived in seem just a little closer, showing those magical scenes we wish made it into the films, while still leaving plenty of room for your imagination to fill in any gaps.

I can’t decide if these books are for original Harry Potter fans to devour and engross themselves in even further (we always want more HP), or if they are for the next generation that I fear have replaced good old paper books with an electronic screen and whose library is contained within a small black device, instead of row upon row of books.

Either way…it’s more Harry Potter so nobody is complaining!
