I wasnt sure I was going to post this morning… I really had nothing to say (SHOCKER!) 😯 and I have a post going us in a bit any way about World Book Night.
However I was checking out a few of my fav blogs this morning while having my COFFEE and trying (trying!) to eat half a grapefruit because I seen on a Gilmore Girls episode it is good for me. 😀
ANYWAY while doing that I seen a couple mentions that Pottermore has gone public. I was part of the Beta testing early entrants and had checked it out a few months back and found it interesting, informative… but within about four days I had done all you could do with it at that point and I left it.
Seeing Alyce this morning talk about her experience so far, and Amy as well, I popped back in to see if after all the feedback and testing what they may have changed.
From my little bit of dabbling I did not see any changes from the testing period. In fact I had ended where it stopped with book one months back and see that it still goes no further. My favorite part of Pottermore is the fun facts you get to see with J K Rowling, how she came up with names for the characters, why she chose the Dursleys house number, etc… if you want to get your Potter geek on, you can certainly do that. 😀
I will probably check it out more now that I am knowing a few people playing. To friend me I am Snitchrook100.
Off to work, maybe a bike ride… and that is my major commitments today – I am loving this week of no evening commitments. I feel refreshed, de-stressed and all out giddy. 😀
If you are on Pottermore let me know your name so I can friend you! 😀

Sounds like an intriguing site for Potter fans…enjoy!
Thanks Laurel, I think it has great potential… I dont think it has reached it. 😀 There is more to come so we shall see 🙂
Is that in Season 5? Trying to remember … :p
LOL… not sure, I tried to find a video on YouTube this morning for the post but I guess it wasn’t that big of a Gilmore moment…. it was when Laurelie’s dad comes to town and tries to get her to eat more healthy and she tries to get Luke to go and buy a grapefruit to serve to her dad at the diner. 😀
Oh, I totally remember the scene! Just trying to test myself. 🙂
You don’t like grapefruit? I love it; in fact, I used to love eating it like an orange, but usually just had a half with sugar. Now I can’t buy them because grapefruit interferes with our medications. Oh, I think I would kill for a grapefruit about now!
They are…. Ok Barbara 😀 I will eat it occasionally with a little Splenda on it 😀
Hmm…might join, might not….though in either case I LOVE the entire HP series. ^_^ Good to hear a bit about what was behind the mystery all those months. Ooh…Gilmore Girls! Love that show…and now I have a jones to watch my DVD set once again.
I have the whole series of Gilmore Girls on DVD too and love them so much! 😀
I was part of the Beta testing as well. It could be that I have a terrible memory, but at first when I went on after it went public, I thought it was all the same. However, when my brother got started I thought maybe there were a few very small things different (or at least I thought there were and maybe I’m just going crazy). Plus they finally got sound up and I think that was the most important thing (to me anyway).
I will have to look at it again… I am not the best for remembering details either 🙂
I just signed up for Pottermore yesterday (I’m RoseCharm19256) and I played with it for about an hour. Agreed that the JK Rowling fun facts are a treat for the fans, but I haven’t gotten to explore too much yet. Haven’t been able to master spells – those are tricky.
I got so annoyed constantly blowing up my pot Lucy! LOL
I’m not anything Potter, but it sounds like fun for those who are.
I’ve heard lots of people say that eating salt on grapefruit is better than eating it with sugar. I don’t know for sure, I can’t eat grapefruit.
Salt on grapefruit? Hmmm…. I like salt…..
my dad eats salt on his watermelon 😉
I’ve filled out my stuff but haven’t checked my email yet…. I’m FlameWizard5094, will look for you
I LOVE salt on watermelon! I have always eaten it that way! 😛
I am AccioHex31698
I like the tips on the chapters, and just the amazing flash site design. I don’t like the potions (you do what it says and still says it is wrong), and it took a bit to catch onto spells, but I’ve not challenged anyone yet.
I will have to get back on and try the spells… I hadn’t challenged anyone either… SCARY! LOL
The interesting facts were my favorite part too, especially the back story about McGonagall.
My user name is DragonRune85
Isnt that cool? It just makes me appreciate JK Rowling even more… everything in the books has a back story!
I just signed up, thanks to you! I’m PixieSnitch955. Just waiting for my validation email. Yay! We both have Snitch in our names…teehee. 😉
LOL, glad to bring in another Potter addict! 😛
Yes, all of the extra information is definitely the best. I know that I’ll be there the first day each time a new book is opened because I am such a huge fan of Harry Potter. I do think the site could be so much more though.
Do they have a schedule when the next book releases Alyce? That would be cool!
I really thought they would do more with all the hype they have given this… I thought it would be more interactive.
I love that scene from GG! It’s when Lorelai gets harassed by Richard to eat a grapefruit in the morning,..
I just befriended you on Pottermore. I’m IceSnitch189.
Hmm something weird happened when I commented..
I adore Gilmore Girls! 😀 Cool – I will check out your friendship on Pottermore! See you there!
I just joined Pottermore! I friended you, I am Mistowl26999
YAY! I will look for you today!
