Pottermore Insider: Beta period extended, eBooks in 2012, and your questions answered

The Pottermore Insider Blog has been updated today to announce that the beta period will extended as well as answer some of your questions.

“Since the launch of the Beta, we’ve seen really high levels of activity, and interaction with the site has been phenomenal. This affects how quickly we can give everyone access. As a result, we’ve decided to extend the Beta period beyond September and take a different approach to the way new users are brought onto the site.

From the end of October, registration will be opened to everyone and we’ll be giving access to registered users in phases. Access may be granted quickly, but please note it could also take some weeks or months, depending on demand.”

Enhancements and simplifications have been promised and the Pottermore Shop will begin selling the Potter eBooks and digital audio books some time in the first half of 2012.
