Expelliarmus to getting those books when you wanted

John Moe Oct 4, 2011

People waiting to get their hands on a Harry Potter ebook or digital audio book[ will have to wait a little longer]( ). Originally intended to be released this month and timed with the formal opening of Pottermore, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter site, the books will now be launched next year. Pottermore has been in beta testing since August, and with about one million users, some of its features have been so successful they had to be taken out of commission (presumably because navigation times were slowing down).

Meanwhile, Voldemortmore hums along nicely. Evil wins again!
