It has almost been one week since the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and it seems like you can't turn a corner without seeing someone reading the book. But for some, the 330 page hard cover book seems bulky and awkward to carry it around — which is where PDFs come in. If people were wondering how to download Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as a PDF — it is possible but it is advised to download with caution.

PDFs are alternative format to reading the hard bound book. Unlike a physical hard copy, PDFs are super transportable and can be read on multiple devices. PDFs are compatible with e-readers, smart phones, and of course, computers. Therefore they're great for reading on the go. Unfortunately, Amazon and Barnes and Noble don't have the option to download Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as a PDF — only in Kindle and NOOK book formats, respectively. Even if people don't have a Kindle or a Nook it could pay off to purchase the ebook version. As Kindle and Nook formats can easily be converted into PDFs using online converters. However, it is recommended to use the online converters with caution as you are downloading something unknown from the internet (which should always be done with warning).

But for those who are a little more risky, there are direct ways to download a PDF of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (although it is advised to visit and download from these websites with caution). Websites like ikindlebooks.com, and other free book downloading websites do have the option to download PDFs from their websites, however be sure to look for reviews of these websites before deciding that downloading that PDF is worth it. No PDF is worth downloading a virus onto your computer — even if that PDF is of the newest Harry Potter book. Try explaining that to the computer repairman at the Genius Bar.

All jokes aside, if there are die hard Harry Potter readers out there who are dying for the PDF of the book, try it safely. Look for a trusted PDF conversion website — one with a lot of reviews, and purchase the ebook version from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. This way, they will have the book in their possession before converting it into their preferred PDF format.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is taking over the world with readers from all around the world  — but those holding out for the PDF don't have to be excluded from this group. With using available resources online or just opting for the hardcover version altogether, finding a PDF of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is definitely possible.
