5 Things to Look Forward to After Harry Potter
But fret not, HP fans, after the jump are 5 Things to Look Forward to Until J.K. Rowling Envisions Her Next Major Franchise . . .
Rowling rocked the HP world by announcing an all new website to be launched in October 2011. For the first time ever, audio and ebook versions of the Harry Potter series will be available for purchase. The site will also feature exclusive materials (more than 18,000 words) about the characters, places and objects of the franchise, and will be an interactive forum for readers to delve even further into the wizarding world. Members will be able to read as well as experience Harry's journey first-hand with online features that allow them to choose a wand, be sorted into a Hogwarts house, and even cast spells and mix potions. In the Youtube video announcing the website above, Rowling explained Pottermore as an "opportunity to say thank you [...to a] wonderful, diverse and loyal readership."
