JK Rowling is finally getting online.

Last week, to much speculation, the website Pottermore announced its imminent arrival. This week, we learn that it's not a new series of books about everyone's fave boy wizard but a website to sell the books, with added gaming and community elements. It's partnered with Sony.

Rowling had been an infamous digital publishing holdout, the literary equivalent to the Beatles. Her e-books will bypass Amazon and other e-reader services, though they will be compatible with all formats, say her partners.
