Author J.K. Rowling announced today that her seven Potter novels will be sold as e-books starting in October— ending the boy wizard's status as one of the highest-profile holdouts against digital publishing.
"You can't hold back progress," Rowling said. "E-books are here and they are here to stay."
Book prices will be announced closer to October.
Meanwhile, Pottermore, which Rowling created in partnership with Sony, will include an interactive reading experience of her books.
So what do you think of the ditigal announcement? Did it surprise you?
