The Scotsman is today reporting a quote from J.K. Rowling's agent, which says that the Harry Potter author is "now actively considering plans for e-book versions" of the Harry Potter books.

The article speculates that the e-book rights that would need to be purchased to make the whole series available on the iPad and Kindle could fetch up to £100m (approx $161.64m USD).

That’ll be so cool! I would buy a kindle. =] But, anyway, I would like J.K.Rowling to actually write something more about Harry Potter! =]
