Harry Potter books for free on Kindle

John Moe Jun 19, 2012

If you’ve ever wanted to read the Harry Potter books but somehow haven’t managed to do so yet, you’re either deeply lazy or perhaps you’re a child of five. If it’s the latter, good job reading the Tech Report memo. You’re very advanced.

Anyway, if you have access to a Kindle you can now read the books for free through Kindle’s lending library. You will need to be a member of Amazon Prime, which runs $79 a year. So that makes it not free, I guess, but maybe you already have that service. And you can only borrow one per month. You can also borrow them at these buildings called libraries where you don’t have to pay $79 a year. They’re pretty cool places, actually. Go check them out.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?

Your donation is critical to the future of public service journalism. Support our work today – for as little as $5 – and help us keep making people smarter.
