A week ago, J.K. Rowling started teasing us all via the internet and dropping clues about a new project she has completed. Coordinates led to letters that spelled “Pottermore.” If you went to the pottermore site it has a drawing of an owl and writing that said “coming soon.” An announcement was promised. Now, that announcement is here. But we still don’t know much about it.

We know that it will be a web site that includes e-books and more information about the Harry Potter world. We read that it will “combine social networking elements with an immersive game-like world.” We really hope that this turns out epic, rather than childish, simple, and lame. Rowling needs to be aware that many of her biggest fans are in their 20s. We want a World of Warcraft level universe online, not a few piddly games. (Ok, one of us does. One of us thinks that WoW and such games are beyond nerdy and a complete waste of time.)

The full site will open in October, but a million people will gain early entry if they “follow the owl” and complete a challenge that begins on July 31. We read that profits will go to charity. We really want more information. What we really want is for this woman to write another book, but we will take what we can get.

Watch J.K. Rowling’s short announcement video for yourself.

For more info and some pictures of the site, go here:


  1. Really?? That's the big announcement? Major letdown.

  2. It depends on if you are the gaming, computer nerd type. For the right audience, this could be really cool if it is well-done. We've been known to get addicted to stuff like "The Sims" and games like "Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic," so it might be great for us.

    Most people would rather have the HP encyclopedia or another book though. Especially if they don't want a game in their life.

  3. I want epic-ness. I couldn't care less about gaming (but I will play, so high is the level of my HP-nerd-dom).

    I was trivia. I am a trivia junkie in general, and Scholastic used to have a 576 question trivia game on their website dedicated to all 7 HP books. Some questions were like "Who is the house elf who nearly kills Harry trying to protect him in the 2nd book" and some are literally "What is the odor of the apothocary according to the first book" (bad eggs and cabbage, in case you were wondering). But they nixed that quiz, probably due to its insanity, and I am resigned to play trivia quizzes created by 14 year olds that ask where Harry got his wand.

    But mostly, I'm just excited about e-books. I own half the series in hardcover, all of the series in paperback, and I will buy them all again on my Kindle. It's about time she gave in. Woot.

  4. We miss that trivia game. We were pretty good at it. Possibly not as good as you though. Bad eggs and cabbage? wow.

    We don't see any reason to have the books on our kindle when we already own the physical copies, but we are glad for other people that she gave in
