Pottermore – Interactive Onlinebookgame or… something

(Youtube Direktpotter)

Joanne K. Rowling hat grade das Geheimnis um die Website Pottermore.com gelüftet. Das ganze wird ein interaktives Online-Ebook… oder sowas. Die Seite lädt im Moment bei mir nicht, mehr Infos, wenn sie da sind.

Pottermore is a free website that builds an exciting online experience around the reading of the Harry Potter books.

[update] Es geht vor allem um das exklusive Angebot der Potter-Bücher als eBooks. Von Reuters: Harry Potter novels to become ebooks, but no sequel

The ebooks will be exclusively available on the Pottermore site from October in several languages. They will be available on all major electronic reading devices.

"It is my view you can't hold back progress," Rowling said of the electronic launch.

"Ebooks are here and here to stay. Later than a lot of people, I for the first time downloaded ebooks and it's miraculous for travel and for children in particular. I feel great about taking Harry into this new medium."
