Pottermore to continue the legacy of Harry Potter?

The release of last Harry Potter movie was, for many people, the end of a 10-year journey that started with the first Harry Potter movie. Its worldwide screening was a milestone in itself–breaking record sales, spawning thousands of joyful and sentimental tweets, and getting some of the best reviews for a Harry Potter film yet.

But now that the Harry Potter movie series is officially over (or is it?), fans and perennial viewers are asking themselves: what’s next?

JK Rowlin herself answered that question when she gave a series of clues in secretstreetview.com, the answer to which are letters that form the word POTTERMORE.

A quick visit to Pottermore will indicate that its doors will open for everyone this October. In the meantime, you can register with your email, and you’ll get special updates.

Rumors have been thrown around as regards what Pottermore will be about. One thing’s clear though: it is not a new Harry Potter book. It is, however,  dubbed by The Leaky Cauldron, as “one of the most amazing, engaging and breathtaking additions to this fandom imaginable”.

Whatever Pottermore is bound to offer, it definitely will revolutionize the way readers enjoy their books, officially taking literature to an entirely new platform of social media and the Internet.

So… what do you think will Pottermore be?
