Just listened to it. Awesome episode!!! Made me even more excited and anxious about PotterMore though xD
#Pottermore – sort of interactive puzzles and games, looking forward to wandering around it when it goes live, (wonder if it will crash with weight of numbers)
That was nice…

I’m going to listen now:)
LOVED THIS!!!! You guys are amazing!! I love Melissa and John and how funny they are:) And I just..wow..I only have watched the JKR interview and this..I’ll watch every one from now on :) Just..wow. Lol i was waiting until someone said the adult covers..I thought it was obvious ;) John’s a Slytherin…Haaha thanks so much!! :):):)
Does anyone know if Americans will be able to get the British audio books? I love Stephen Fry.
Also, John seems to be eating something during the last half of the podcast.
Had to say goodbye to my Turkish friend today, shes is going home forever cause her visa is up! :( and this made me happy:)
You guys got one thing right, Jo is goblin made, exquisite and strong.
Can’t wait for October! And yay Pottercast!
can’t wait to hear this i’m downloading it right now to listen on the bus :)
just listening, hahaa awesome episode, thanks for adressing the problem of wand pricing, because i’ve been very confused about that and finally someone has talked about it :)
They were talking about the e-books that will be available on the site. Melissa said the Tolkien books are not available on e-book format. Uh, yes they are. The first books I bought from Amazon when I got my Kindle were the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. Also, she said the HP e-books would be available on all e-readers. Maybe. The articles I read about Pottermore said the books would be in ePub format. The Kindle does not support ePub. There’s been speculation that this might be what finally gets Amazon to support the format. While they won’t be selling the books, the thinking is if they don’t support it, people might decide to buy a reader that does.
