J.K. Rowing's agent says the best-selling author is considering making the "Harry Potter" books available electronically. Neil Blair, Rowling's agent, says the author is now "actively looking at all the various options" for launching the seven Harry Potter books in the e-book market.

Blair said Monday that Rowling has been watching the developing e-book market and waiting for the right moment to release her books in that format.

About 450 million copies of the Harry Potter books have been sold worldwide, Blair said.
