Pottermore, J. K. Rowling’s online Harry Potter experience, is now open to all wishing to join in on the experience. The change was made early this morning in the UK and is indicated on the official website with the question “Are you magical?” Users may sign up now, while actual invitations should start arriving– care of owls, surely– over the next few days. The Pottermore Insider blog reads:

Get ready to begin your Pottermore journey, because Pottermore.com is now opening to everyone.

Over the coming days, we’ll be inviting new users onto Pottermore.com. We’re expecting to be really busy to start with and plan to activate new registrations in a steady stream. This means that you may not get access to Pottermore immediately after you sign up but we will get you exploring the site as quickly possible.

After you’ve signed up, you’ll get sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses, have a wand choose you, and discover exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling.

We’ll be adding lots of exciting new features over the coming weeks and months, so make sure you return regularly to explore and discover all the changes as Pottermore grows.

The news comes on the heels of a pretty busy week in Harry Potter, with the announcement of author J. K. Rowling’s next book project, The Casual Vacancy, and the launch of her revamped official website right here.

Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Great news! Going to sign up in a moment!! :DAvatar ImageLunaBear says: I hope you all enjoy pottermore! Maybe they'll release the second book soon!Avatar Imageroonwit says: The Bookseller has been talking to the Pottermore chief executive at http://www.thebookseller.com/news/j-k-rowlings-pottermore-opens-all.html and reports He said those users who were returning to the site would not yet find the additional content they might want. "There is some more content, and some new functionality, but this is really just the beginning." He said book 2, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, would follow next with this new content to come through in a matter of "weeks and months".Avatar ImageHermioneLunaHP says: YEAH! So excited! I'm joining it right now!Avatar ImageGrindylow_101 says: Already signed up! So Leaky don't even mention the fact that I told them. :(Avatar ImageLivi22 says: @Grindylow101- You probably just got beaten to it, I wouldn't take it personally.Avatar Imagedeenally93 says: i really hope that second email comes quickly!!!Avatar ImageRavenclawmax says: I told them two, I guess a lot of people must have so they thank anyone. :PAvatar Imagegem2 says: does anyone have any clue when book two will open? i figured they would open after they let everyone else in. (by the way, i was a beta user, and i hope everyone else enjoys it!!!! i'm glad they are finally letting you in!!!)Avatar Imagefelicitas says: I just want to get sorted! I'm so very confused! At LeakyCon last year I was walking around sporting clothing from all the houses. And then the extra bit if I don't get into Gryffindor!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I got a call from a friend who was all upset... I quote: "How the H*LL am I supposed to catch up in the points? Some of you betas already got over 200,000!!! They shooda reset them! " LOOOOL.... o.0Avatar Imageroonwit says: gem2: There have been a few things said about CoS (eg. the first half of 2012 but that was said a while ago so it might have slipped). It could be reasonably soon depending on how much creating, testing and fixing of the new stuff they have been able to fit in but I doubt it will be this month as I think they will want to wait until the new entrants have had a chance to register, get in and explore and the site isn't so busy.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: How nice, now everyone can finally be a part of it. I'm guessing they'll space out the second emails so a whole bunch of people dont crash the site. Avatar ImageRavenclawmax says: @LunaLuver, your right, there is a pretty big space between letters. I know some people that got on this morning, but I haven't got mine yet and I signed up this morningAvatar ImageRsheppard says: Finally it opens to all! I've signed up for it Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: Hip, Hip, Hooray!!!Avatar ImageMagical Arts says: New features? Yeees! I got last summer, so somthing new for the site would be good now. Hope you enjoy the site - everyone who didn't make it in the magical quill contest! :)Avatar ImageSeneca Crane says: Can't wait for the welcome email! :DAvatar ImageRaytheforgottenWeasley says: Waiting on my Owl! Avatar ImageMichelle32 says: Omg now I have to wait for an email!!!! I am so excited!!Avatar ImageHarryLoverAllRound says: OH MY GOD!!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO JOIN. I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SOOOO LONG!!!! YEAH!!!!!Avatar Imagesidnandragin says: FINALLY! It took long enough. Could it be that they are finally getting their act together? Now only if they send out the email confirmations in a timely fashion WOULD be the crowning glory. Maybe they can allow us newbies to be a part of the games and all that they had before it went "live". Avatar Imagelovelle says: I'm actually waiting for this! I'm already a beta-user but I wanted to register for another account! Anyway, welcome to the new ones! :DAvatar ImageMad But Happy says: YAY! Add me, my name is HazelAccio167!Avatar Imagemwppforever says: I'm still seeing "Beta" at the top of Pottermore when I log in...are we supposed to create a new account to start fresh along with everyone else?Avatar ImageSpook says: Got email today and was told may be wait 7 days.
