Jun 23, 2011  •  Post A Comment

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling posted a video on her new site Pottermore.com that explains what the mysterious site will provide: a new online reading experience for the “Harry Potter” series, where she will share "information I’ve been hoarding for years."

"It’s the same story with a few crucial additions," Rowling said on the video. "The most important one is you. Pottermore will be built in part by you, the reader."

Rowling added that the free site will also provide exclusive distribution of digital audio books and "for the first time" e-books for the “Harry Potter” series. The site will "be open to all in October," according to a posting on the website.

Readers and fans will be able to submit their own comments, drawings and other content in a "safe and friendly environment," according to the UK’s Telegraph.

The site is offering a chance for a "lucky few" to enter early and help shape the experience, with details to be announced July 31.
