Pottermore is an interactive Harry Potter experience that was made by Rowling. Basically, she adds new content to read about the world with interactive excerpts from the books that you can collect items from, zoom around the areas, and even go shopping in Diagon Alley for all of your school supplies. It's essentially something to read along to the books with, since that is what she suggests. I haven't even gotten through the first book yet in the beta, but so far I have taken a quiz to get my wand, bought all my school supplies, and was sorted in to Hufflepuff.
It has some minor RPG elements to it, like a banking system, item collecting, and a few other things to make it more personalized for the reader. You also gain house points and are going for the house cup.. Not sure how to get points yet. It also is offering the books for the first time for e-readers.

EDIT: I'm currently making potions and following my potion book for house points. It's really amusing since I actually have to DO what it says. Clever, Rowling.. Way to keep me addicted.
EDIT EDIT: I failed making the potion, like, 3 times in a row. Now I'm waiting for 3 minutes for it to brew and see if I did it right this time. It hasn't exploded on my screen like the others.. so I think this is a good sign.
EDIT EDIT EDIT: SUCCESS! Unfortunately it was just a test potion.. now I'm waiting on one for 85 minutes to brew before I can continue with the potion. How long were Snape's classes, because I mean holy shit if that had to wait around for 85 minutes for a potion to brew a bit before being able to add more ingredients.
I love you, spam bots.
