Keep on Pottering

Why does Jo Rowling love to torture us? For years she dropped clue after clue about the Harry Potter books and as fans we hypothesized, reread the books and lost sleep over the possibilities. Okay, maybe that was just me. Now, my peaceful vacation is interrupted by yet another Potter Teaser.

Rowling announced that she will be making a Potter related announcement. That's just evil. The website has a link to a YouTube countdown. We have to wait 6 days to hear what it is. The announcement will inevitably lead to even more waiting. Oh and she promises it is not a new book, and MuggleNet calls it the Pottermore Project.

There are many theories circulating. They range from a London based HP Theme Park, an interactive online game, and the long awaited HP Encyclopedia.

I don't know what to believe. Rowling is tricky and even though they say it is not a new book, I question their honesty. Remember when Dobby swore whatever was happening at Hogwarts had nothing to do with Voldemort? Rowling loves to torture us with semantics.

Do you have any theories?


  1. I have no theories. Every time I tried to come up with one, whilst waiting for the next book, I would end up crying because I sucked at guessing. I was one of those, yes, one of those who like you lost sleep over this. Now, I don't know what to think. My eleven year old and I are just trying to keep down the level of excitement over the movie, and now this.... I fear the Frenchman will move to a Harry Potterless environment LOL

  2. I'm just hoping it's another book :D
