Welcome to Pottermore!

J.K. Rowling Fan Site Launched

Good news for Potterites. Or Potterheads, or whatever they're called. The official Harry Potter website, Pottermore, has finally launched to overwhelming demand. The site for fans of the J.K. Rowling sorcery series had so much traffic that developers have to limit user registrations, for the time being. 

"[W]e’ve had an incredible number of people sign up to over the past few hours. To ensure everyone exploring has the best experience possible, we are currently limiting the number of users who can sign in to the site. We’ll be steadily increasing this limit throughout the day, so more and more people will be able sign in at once."

The free site will feature behind-the-scenes intel about the books and interactive games that "allocate house points and spells to its users." Users can also shop for e-book Potter editions, available in English, German, Spanish, Italian and French.

J.K. herself hasn't been exactly sitting on her laurels in her Scottish castle. The authoress has been busy weaving spells on her own website, promoting her first book for adults.

Will you be visiting Pottermore? Are you a J.K. fan? Do you think she can work her magic on adult fiction, too?
