Fans of the wizarding world, rejoice! Harry Potter has arrived on Kobo Plus

November 08, 2023

Dutch, Belgian and French fans will now have access to all Harry Potter books and other stories from the Wizarding World™ through their Kobo Plus subscription

TORONTO November 8, 2023 – Rakuten Kobo reaches an agreement with Pottermore Publishing to bring all Harry Potter books and other stories from the Wizarding World™ to its Kobo Plus catalogue in the Netherlands, Belgium and France. The beloved fantasy books will be available to Kobo Plus subscribers in English, Dutch and French starting November 8th.

For one low monthly fee, Kobo Plus subscribers will be able to immerse themselves in the wizarding world through the Harry Potter series, the Hogwarts Library books, screenplays from the Fantastic Beasts movies and more, wherever and whenever they please.

“The impact of the Harry Potter series is unprecedented. While the Harry Potter titles have always been popular on Kobo, we are so excited to bring them and other stories from the Wizarding World™ to our Kobo Plus subscribers. After over a decade as pioneers in the digital reading space, we’ve learned that nothing excites a booklover as much as saying ‘read as much as you want,’ which is exactly what our Kobo Plus service offers,” said Bart Robers, Director, Audiobooks and Global Subscriptions, Rakuten Kobo.

Dutch, Belgian and French booklovers can access Kobo Plus via the Kobo Books App for iOS or Android, and directly on Kobo eReaders. Readers will have the freedom to explore books from the country’s biggest publishers, Kobo Originals, and eBooks and audiobooks published through Kobo Writing Life—Kobo’s global self-publishing platform.

While we may not be able to arrange your invitation to Hogwarts, Kobo promises an enchanting adventure for fans. Let the magic begin.
