If you Muggles are thinking that Harry Potter is over, think again. Now there’s Pottermore.com, a free website developed by J.K. Rowling to apperate you directly in to the magical world of Harry Potter (even if you’re an underaged wizard). It’s filled with new writings, games and a whole host of social tools. Ms. Rowling says that, at Pottermore , “The digital generation will be able to enjoy a safe, unique online reading experience built around the Harry Potter books.” I signed up, and the sorting hat assigned me to a house at Hogwarts. And, of course, when I went to get my wand, I didn’t really have a choice, as you know, the wand chooses the wizard. Just remember anything worth having is worth waiting for, after you request your username, it may take up to a day to receive your login credentials. But once you get to Hogwarts, it will feel like home. You’ll meet up with all of your magical and muggle friends for some great fun at Pottermore.com.
