Well kids, early this morning I got out of bed because I really am that crazy about Harry Potter I wanted to know what this Pottermore thing was all about.

Yesterday I tweeted that I was going to be disappointed if this was just a big online game for Harry Potter fans. Don't get me wrong, I think it would be cool to see the graphics, but playing this game for hours on end is not exactly something that fits into my schedule.

However, when I saw that this interactive reading experience would allow me to find out even more information about the world that is Harry Potter I was more than intrigued.

For example, I can:
  1. Finally find out what house I belong in- Apparently it's not a bad thing to be a Slytherin and if we're in another house besides Gryffindor, we'll be sure to find out loads more about the Houses.
  2. Find out what kind of wand would have chosen me and why.
  3. Learn the back story on Professor McGonagall including a love story and her friendship with Albus Dumbledore
  4. See places like Diagon Alley and Hogwarts.
  5. Learn how to make potions and cast charms and spells to help my House! ("Please not Slytherin! Please not Slytherin!")
    • EDITED TO ADD: I should note that I've always thought I would be in Slytherin House. I just like to quote the books because it's fun and technically a play on words of sorts!
And as the line goes, "I must not tell lies." I am super excited!!

J.K. Rowling has reportedly written over 18,000 words already for the new information and is only a 1/3 of what is to come out. Everything that is given on the site will be from her AND there is still a potential promise of the long awaited encyclopedia!

Now if I could only register my email address! I mean really, J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers come out with this great idea and they can't make a website to support the thing?!?!

I should add that audio books with tons of extras can be bought as well as the eReaders. Not that I'll be purchasing any of them because I like paper. Ahem.

If you have more questions, I suggest that you go to or one of the other fan websites.

Happy Thursday!!

P.S. We are less than a month away from the last movie!!

Also, I was not paid to write this in any way, shape, or form. I am just a unashamed Harry Potter fan!

HOWEVER, should Ms. Rowling herself see this, email me because I'd love to meet you!!

Hey now, there's nothing wrong with Slytherin. I get so annoyed with all the people who automatically characterize Slytherin with being unethical, uncaring and at times downright evil. Maybe unscrupulous, perhaps motivated by status, but not necessarily bad. Wow, I didn't realize I had that rant in me.
