Last week, JK Rowling finally let fans on the secret: the much anticipated Pottermore.
Rowling said that she has no plans to write any more Harry Potter books, but she will be sharing plenty of bonus material through Pottermore. She has over 18,000 words of background information and special details about Harrys world to share.
The purpose of Pottermore is to create a safe and friendly place where fans can share Harry Potter content they create on their own, said Rowling. This novel approach to fan interaction represents an exciting opportunity for readers.
Meanwhile, Pottermore will also be the only place to get Harry Potter e-books. These will be released one at a time. The site will launch July 31 to one million registered beta users. The full launch will happen in October. (For collectible first editions and signed Harry Potter books, check out our selection!)
