J.K. Rowling's 'Pottermore': Not a book, but an Internet game

The publishing world has been waiting with bated breath for J.K. Rowling's announcement about  her latest project, "Pottermore." It can exhale: "Pottermore" isn't more Potter, as in an eighth book in the wildly successful series. According to the Guardian, It's a web-based scavenger hunt.
