Harry Potter Pottermore site confirms eBook release

JK Rowling confirmed the upcomign eBook arrival of the Harry Potter series at the launch of the Pottermore website

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has officially revealed the next big addition to the Harry Potter franchise as Pottermore is confirmed as an interactive site that will eventually become an outlet to acquire eBook renditions of the boy wizard releases.

Mystery has surrounded the JK Rowling web venture in recent weeks with a confirmed eBook release sure to appease Potter fans across the globe who have patiently waited for the series’ long overdue digital arrival.

Forgoing the benefits of the Amazon Kindle Store, or one of the numerous other eBook outlets, Rowling has revealed the newly launched Pottermore website will be her own unique portal for her eBook releases with the first Harry Potter title, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone set to launch via Pottermore in digital form on October 1st.

The announcement, which comes less than a month before the cinematic launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the final instalment of the eight part movie franchise, confirmed Potter fans will also be able to acquire digital audio book copies of their favourite Harry Potter titles with the franchises’ second release; Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to hit Pottermore in 2012 followed by the remaining five titles.

Set to go live on July 31st, Pottermore will offer more than access to digital books with the website to be an active community for Potter fans with Rowling penning more than 18,000 words for the site detailing various aspects of the wizarding world.

Will the Harry Potter books be as successful in the digital world as they were in printed form or are their success based on the younger audience unlikely to own an eReader? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
