It is cool but I too miss the old one. Hopefully she’ll keep it updated rather than just abandon it like she did the old one. (that sound kinda mean but I don’t mean it that way). Can’t wait for more news on pottermore, maybe a specific date of the public launch. XD

I loved the look of her website, is very similar to the way I imagined, except for not having more messy desk. And I am already very anxious, eager to get just that in September, which will then buy the new book: The Casual Vacancy!

Nooooo!!!!! Does this mean the beautiful old website will never be seen again???? It was pretty much the coolest website of all time!!!!!!!!!! How could it be gone?? :(((((( And there was all that interesting information about HP stuff! I guess people that are just becoming fans will never be able to see it…. This is depressing.

Im sure the new Pottermore website will include a lot of the information about HP that was formaly on her personal website. But I must say that I just got to check out the Deathly Hallows II premiere for the first time and omg! The ending was so emotional when the actors and Rowling were giving their final words. How could any fan not cry along with them?

On the website, it’s said that a lot of the older stuff from the JKR website would be going on Pottermore, so that’s super. Also, did you notice this tiny bit from Q&A?

Q: What about the Harry Potter Encyclopaedia?
A: For a long time I have been promising an encyclopaedia of Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now – some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity.

So she’s working on it right now! I went straight out of my head when I read this…
