'Harry Potter' novels will be sold as e-books, audiobooks on Pottermore.com
The secret of "Pottermore" has been revealed Harry Potter's wild wizard adventures are going digital.

Author J.K. Rowling announced Thursday that her seven Potter novels will be sold as e-books starting in October ending the boy wizard's status as one of the highest-profile holdouts against digital publishing.

"You can't hold back progress," Rowling said. "E-books are here and they are here to stay."

-----

Rowling, one of the world's most powerful authors, is bypassing established online retailers like Amazon, although the creators of Pottermore say the books will be compatible with popular e-readers including Amazon's Kindle, Sony's Reader and Apple's iPad.

1. The site has been overrun today. It's not accepting email addresses at this time.

2. But, we still have a few hold outs for release of digital music...
apparently.... even after the Beatles' reps reached their agreements with Itunes. Sort of a loosing cause, I'd think.
