What can I say…loving this. Got all teared up when she started reading. My everlasting wish is to sit with her, somewhere in the nature, and just listen to her voice…Hah, I knew she was in Gryffindor. I’m in Slytherin, and proud of it :) Even Jo, as a Gryffindor is misjudging us. We’re, above all, fighters. And believe me, for all good reasons :)

Fantastic Interview. I loved listening and watching this. Isn’t it wonderful to know that J.K. is also on Pottermore. Pottermore is really a great experience for re-reading the books and experiencing the magical world that has been created. Thanks to Jo and the fantastic team who are working to make this such an experience.

I loved that too. Especially what her daughter said: “We should all want to be in Hufflepuff” and what Rowling herself said about Hufflepuffs. I have always felt it but it’s just nice to hear it from her. “They stayed for all the right reasons” to stand up to Voldemort at the end of DH.
