J.K. Rowling has introduced the highly anticipated Pottermore website to the world, though the site says it won’t be open to viewers until October. But she did reveal some exciting features, mainly an online gaming experience with real-word treasure hunts. The site will also be the only place to buy digital copies of “Harry Potter” books. “Pottermore will be the place where fans of any age can share, participate in and rediscover stories,” said Rowling.
