J.K. Rowling + Google Books = Cash Money

Today it was announced that J.K. Rowling is teaming up with Google Books to launch her Pottermore site, debuting in October. (Though the website teases, “Come back on 31st July to find out how you can get the chance to enter Pottermore early.”)

The mind boggles at just how much money that will make for the respective parties. Boggles. It’s impossible to even think of a witty comment about it.*

That’s a whole lotta cash.

*Even though this feature is theoretically supposed to be a humorous accompaniment to your morning coffee. Not so funny today. Not funny at all, in fact.

What's worse is I will probably be there on the 31st to join up.

@pics4 I don't think that's worse at all! There's no shame in being enthusiastic about something, that's what's fun about fandom. We've ALL been there!

Pots of money, no question about it. Good thing the recipients are reasonably non-evil.
