Avatar ImageRhiannon7 says: Really? They are just starting CoS. Pottermore is moving slower than a flobberworm in February. Avatar Imageeikind says: So far Pottermore has proven to be the most useless webside related to the Potter franchise. Didn't they have enough time to actually record the audio during the whole year that it was in beta??Avatar Imageroonwit says: Rhiannon: We don't know how long they have been working on it or in what order. I suspect there is still a lot to do but I suspect they are a fair way through as they know what sounds will be needed.Avatar ImageFredFreakinWeasly says: I hope it's up soon :) Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: So great!!! Accio 2nd book!!! I hope it comes quickly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageroonwit says: eikind: They weren't going to have sound originally, that is one of the things they added after beta feedback. Also, until they have planned each book, they won't know what sounds to record.Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: I really can't wait!!!Avatar Imagebobbblie says: Really want c of s soon. i wonder if j.k. rowling knows how we feel.Avatar Imagekatelyner123 says: OMG! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! :DDDDDDDDDDDD Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: My guess would be thay sound is one of the last things to do for the books. CoS will probably be out end of July/early August, to mark Pottermore's one year anniversary.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Awesome! I haven't been on Pottermore in a while..need to go again...Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Really! They are just starting CoS.

I really hope they start working on Prisoner as soon as they finish Chamber. It doesn't take as long to read through Pottermore as it did any of the books and there isn't as much to discuss since we know the story. They need to pick up the pace now that the Beta is over. I'm curious, though, why it still says Beta on my page. Are they still doing Beta even though they have opened it to everyone?Avatar ImageTarana says: What I would like to see is a Pottermore edition for impatient people. I like the little bits of background information from Jo, like how she came up with names and everything, but I don't want to click around for ages, find a quote from the books, and then finally find something new. At least give me the possibility to go to the new bits without a detour. (Just something to keep me happy until the 'Scottish book' comes out) Am I the only one who gets a bit bored and frustrated with Pottermore, just because it takes so long to move on? And I am not talking about the fact that the next book isn't on it yet, I've only just started on chapter two of PS. I'm sure there are some real 'gems' to be found, but I want them now, not after spending weeks on the site (Yeah, I know I'm sounding like a little kid. Did I say I am a bit impatient? ;o) )Avatar Imagerettophantom says: If there's anything that the Harry Potter series has taught, one huge life lesson is surely the joy of waiting and anticipation? How much fun have we all had in those glorious years between books. Speculating, pouring over wording and details, or just watching a countdown app ticking the precious seconds away until the moment of a new release comes. I would give anything to go back to those years, and I find the Pottermore hunt extremely rewarding when you come to a new piece of information. I cherish these moments and would hate to have a Staples Easy button to skip to the prizes. I really hope they take their time. Pottermore is giving us the chance to relive the magic in a new and fresh way. Let's not take that for granted.Avatar ImageTarana says: In a way, I understand what you mean, Rettophantom. Thanks for your post. But to me Pottermore is not a way of reliving those happy times. The joy and anticipation - and let’s not forget the predictions! - about what would happen in the next books, that was great. I was there from 1999 onwards and I loved most of it. That was all about the books (for me anyway). From Pottermore though, I expected some real stuff as a reward, not a quote I already know. But bits that later hopefully will appear in the encyclopedia. Perhaps also more little details I have missed. Like the beetle that Victor removed from Hermione’s hair, which proved to be Rita Skeeter. I love the little (or sometimes large) stuff like that. That’s why, last year, I reread the HP books simultaneously with the books by James W. Thomas. Or why I sometimes join Leaky’s book clubs (when I have the time). I am not very keen on computer games in general, and the results of Pottermore have, so far, been too meagre (and I'm sorry to say, too slow) to my taste. It takes up too much of my time, time which I could use to (re)read books. I will still look at it occasionally and I’m happy for the people who like it, so enjoy! But I guess I’m most of all a book person. Books rule! :o) Avatar ImageJinx.Melanie says: I cant wait for the Chamber of Secrets!! Hope it comes soon!!
