Release of Harry Potter e-books delayed until 2012

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Despite earlier announcements that electronic versions of the seven “Harry Potter” books would go on sale in October exclusively via the online portal, “Pottermore,” creators of the portal announced today that the e-book release will be pushed back to 2012.

Pottermore is currently available to only one million registered users, who were permitted to join as part of the July launch after being chosen through an online competition. The creators of the portal attributed the e-book delay to serving a greater purpose: “opening Pottermore to as many people as possible and making the experience as good as it can be.”

Consequently, the focus of Pottermore for the remainder of 2011 will be to enlist as many new users as possible. The site has been described as “combination of virtual encyclopedia, role-playing game and online community for fans of author J.K. Rowling’s boy wizard.”
