J.K. Rowling Reveals The Secrets Of 'Pottermore'

For the past week Harry Potter fans - us included - have been wondering what exactly 'Pottermore' was going to be.  Today J.K. Rowling revealed the details to keep us from making up more stuff.  Take the jump to find out what she said.

So Pottermore is more than a place to buy ebooks.  It's the ultimate Harry Potter archive and community.  You won't only be able to read about the books, but be able to experience them as a social network.  Take a look at what the Pottermore gateway looks like.

It's kind of a Harry Potter 4 Square meets Facebook.  We'll also be able to learn more about the Harry Potter world with new details written by J.K. Rowling.  This will now be the definitive web site for Potter fans all over the world to get together and share their experiences with each other.  When you sign up for the site you will be able to get your wand at Olivanders and be sorted in to houses by the Sorting Hat.  

Each area of the site has a specific look to it.  Here are some more examples.

Pottermore Hogwarts Express

Pottermore Christmas

This looks like it will be a lot of fun.  Best of all, it's totally free to use!  I know, right?!?

Pottermore officially opens to the public for use on Harry Potter's birthday, July 31st.
