Have you kids been to Pottermore yet? I take real issue with authors giving out information after the book has been read. I spend so much time investing myself in a book, visualizing the characters, thinking up back stories and basically creating an image in my head of who they are. Same with places and situations. That's my job as a reader. So when an author says, "And by the way, I never mentioned it in the book but that favorite character of yours has every Pat Boone album and roots for the Cleveland Indians," well, I get a little annoyed.
So I wasn't planning on checking it out.
Except that I did on Sunday night and two hours later I had a wand (10 inches, maple, phoenix feather core, slightly springy) and was put into Ravenclaw House and had read the back stories and inside stuff and brewed some potions and well, I was sort of hooked. Ugh. I'm not pleased with myself, believe me.
But I do think that if ever there was a series to do this to it would be Harry Potter. One of the things I love the most about JK Rowling is her imagination. There are just so many cool and interesting things she has created. And who doesn't miss this world? So, okay, I'm a fan of Pottermore. Ravenclaw Rules!
