HARRY POTTER teraz w e-booku TANIEJ

Elektronicznych wersji książek autorstwa J. K. Rowling, o przygodach młodego czarodzieja z Hogwartu, nie znajdziemy w naszych księgarniach. Polskie wydania są obecnie sprzedawane w jednym sklepie, nad którym autorka ma prawdopodobnie większą kontrolę niż w przypadku tradycyjnego księgarskiego łańcucha dystrybucyjnego. To specjalnie założony na tę okazję portal i sklep Pottermore. Taka sytuacja nie dotyczy tylko polskojęzycznych książek autorki. Ale jest też kilka wyjątków w postaci większych sieci księgarskich. Jest wśród nich choćby Amazon, który wynegocjował sobie prawo do sprzedaży tych e-booków także u siebie.

Seria książek o Potterze sprzedawała się na naszym rynku znakomicie. Ale głównie w wersji papierowej. Przy braku oficjalnie wydanego e-booka w czasie premiery kolejnych tomów, w sieci błyskawicznie pojawiały się amatorskie wersje w postaci plików rozpowszechnianych w wielu formatach. Pojawienie się oficjalnego sklepu Pottermore chyba niewiele zmieniło, bo ceny w nim zaproponowane raczej nie należały do „promocyjnych”. Kiedy pierwszy raz zobaczyłem ofertę e-booków na stronie Pottermore, byłem w lekkim szoku. Jak to? E-booki po 40 złotych? Dziś jednak patrzę na to inaczej, bo ceny nowych e-booków w Polsce pomału dorównały do tego pułapu. Ale zapewne wciąż jest wiele osób, które przygód młodego czarodzieja nie znają lub chcą kupić oficjalnie wydanego e-booka. A jest ku temu okazja, bo chyba po raz pierwszy od uruchomienia sklepu cenę pierwszych tomów obniżono o połowę.

Obecnie w obniżonej cenie (4,49 EUR, czyli ok. 20 PLN) można kupić trzy pierwsze części cyklu o Harry'm Potterze w formacie EPUB: część I „Harry Potter i Kamień Filozoficzny”, część II „Harry Potter i Komnata Tajemnic” oraz część III „Harry Potter i Więzień Azkabanu”. Oferta ważna jest do 15 września 2020 r. Można także kupić jako prezent. Pozostałe e-booki z przygadami Harry'ego wciąż są po 8,99 EUR, czyli ok. 40 PLN. Komplet siedmiu tomów jest do nabycia za 57,99 EUR (ok. 260 PLN).

 

A u mnie na półce królują pierwsze wydania papierowe :)

HP & The Order of the Phoenix - audiobook
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Book 5 - J.K. Rowling,Jim Dale

 

 

Loving my re-read (listening) to the entire Harry Potter series. I guess I've seen the movies more recently so I've forgotten some details of the books. I love rediscovering things as I read. I'll be moving on to book 6 after a bit of a break. :)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter #6) - J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

I must be turning into a bit of a cynic in my old age. Each time I re-read these books, I find a few more things that irritate me.

 

It seems to be books 5-7 that annoy me more so than 1-4. I feel like by this point in time, Harry should know better. He doesn't listen to any of the adults in his life. His friends are just trying to help him and all he does is treat them like dirt. Harry has a huge listening problem. He's a bit of a narcissist. You would think that after everything he's seen and been through in his time as Hogwarts, he would be a little more level headed and make some better choices. Stopping to think things through isn't something Harry excels at. He always seems to be smacking himself in the forehead when he comes to a great realization after everything has gone horrifically wrong. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I still love all of these books. Perhaps being a mom has made me less tolerant of something the things Harry does? Maybe working in a school with children who aren't my own has made me question how Harry's teachers handled his constant rule breaking? Who know. Whatever it is, I'm actually starting to be a little concerned. What happens the next time I try to read these books? Will I have turned into a complete cynic to the point where I just can't with any of Harry's antics? Only time will tell.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) - J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J.K. Rowling

This has always been my least favorite Harry Potter novel. There are several examples of bad decisions made throughout the series but the bulk of those bad decisions come in this book. Bad decisions were made by everyone but none more than Dumbledore. We don't see much of him in this novel but the bit we do see isn't great (imo). 

 

Don't get me wrong. I still love this book. I still love this series. Maybe my overly negative view has more to do with the world we are living in right now than anything else. I mean Cornelius Fudge and Dolores Umbridge are refusing to see what's right in front of them because it doesn't fit their own personal agendas. Dealing with the truth is too scary for them. It sounds strangely familiar. Umbridge alone. Ugh. If you have read all of these novels and if by the end of them, you don't hate Umbridge more than Voldemort, you read them wrong. Go back and try again. 

 

And Harry? He is unbearably arrogant and foolish in this book. About the only action of his I agree with is at the beginning when he snaps at Ron and Hermione because they are always bickering with each other. They are. They deserved to be snapped at. After that it's all down hill. Bad decision after bad decision. If we're being honest with ourselves, Umbridge is really the only person who actually hold Harry accountable for his actions. I don't agree with her methods but she's not really wrong. Yelling at teachers? Not following directions? Those are things you aren't suppose to do when you are the student. When other adults (McGonagall, Lupin, the Weasley's, etc.) all tell you to put your head down and just do what you're told, maybe you should listen to them. But no. Harry just barrels on and does whatever he wants. Maybe just do what you're told and let the truth come out on its own. That's kind of how I'm currently feeling about that stupid "PLANdemic" movie that people keep posting all over Facebook (Seriously, my friend list has been cut in half in two days). Eventually people will realize how stupid they look. And if not? Well, sometimes you can't fix stupid. 

 

If I'm going to come to an overall conclusion about TOOTP, it's that maybe I'm the problem. It's entirely possible, I'm just reading this book at a bad time. This is the first time this series has failed me. I always read it when things get a little out of hand. I like the predictability. I like the characters. It feels normal to me. Maybe the bigger problem here is that normal is changing. Maybe the problem is I'm not willing to accept the change so I'm irrationally lashing out at a book. This is some pretty deep thinking for someone who is only through one cup of coffee this morning.
