GeekMom Melissa Wiley recently wondered about the “mysterious new website” coming soon from author J.K. Rowling called Pottermore.com. Wonder no more, Melissa. The Wall Street Journal reports that Rowling has created a “Harry Potter universe” for her fans that will include an online store offering – among other things – the Harry Potter series available as e-books for the first time ever.
Whether fans are reading the book in print or on a screen, a bigger draw may be the chance to join one of Hogwart’s four houses and explore the first Harry Potter book virtually. Me? I’m anxious to read some of the extra material that Rowling promises to share at Pottermore, including the story behind Professor McGonagall.
