For Harry Potter Fans

 If you are a fan of Harry Potter and you haven’t heard of Pottermore.com yet, keep an eye out for registration to begin!  I was lucky enough to be able to register early, and the site should be open to everyone any day now.  You can explore each book in detail, and as you explore you can unlock new content from J.K. Rowling.  She talks about decisions she made in the writing process (for example, why she chose not to use the metric system, and how, in doing so, she managed to anger her sister), and she also gives very detailed histories on favorite characters such as Professor McGonagall.  As you work your way through the first book, you get a wand in Diagon Alley, and you get sorted into one of the four Houses.  After that you can earn House points by brewing potions and collecting potions ingredients while exploring the chapters.  You can also participate in Wizard Duels, collect Chocolate Frog cards, and add your friends who are also registered so you can interact with them on the website. It’s definitely worth looking into for anyone who has enjoyed the books!
