Here's a new plot twist: The Harry Potter series just got a bit more magical—and portable. Apple just announced that fans can now buy enhanced digital editions of all seven titles in the iBooks store. Previously, e-book versions of the bestselling novels were only available for purchase through the Pottermore website.

The refurbished tomes–which include brand-new covers, custom Harry Potter typefaces, and annotations written by J.K. Rowling—can be read on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. They're also filled with more than 200 original illustrations, including animated and interactive images.

The best part? If you're an English speaker, you can download the enhanced iBooks starting today. Sadly, if you speak French, German, or Spanish, you'll have to pre-order yours and wait for a November 8 delivery.
