Chamber of Secrets chapters 1-4 now available to everyone on Pottermore!

We’ve waited patiently for almost a year, and now book two on Pottermore, Chamber of Secrets, is finally being opened. Chapters 1-4 went live yesterday for House Cup winners Slytherin, and today they are accessible for all other students too. Head over to Pottermore now to have a look at the new features and content by JK Rowling!

The website currently states that subsequent chapters will be available ‘shortly’.

Pottermore to add a House Cup Winner

With Pottermore making updates until the release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the Pottermore Insider recently announced that they are setting up a House Cup Tournament. As you already know, the House Cup is awarded to the house with the most house points at the end of the school year. On Pottermore, you can achieve house points through brewing potions and dueling. Here is what Pottermore said:

Pottermore students have been working hard on their potion-making and duelling skills to earn house points for their respective houses. Those points have been gathering and, with the numbers building up to impressive heights, we can now announce that the Pottermore House Cup will be awarded soon! The house with the greatest number of points will win the Pottermore House Cup, so keep up the duelling and brewing. We’ll be posting updates regarding the Pottermore House Cup both on the Insider and on the Pottermore Gateway, but also somewhere else… We’re pleased to announce that each Pottermore house now has its own noticeboard. Your house noticeboard can be found in your house’s common room on Pottermore – make sure you visit to stay up to date with the latest house news as we begin the countdown to the announcement of the Pottermore House Cup winner. It’s an exciting time; good luck to all houses!

Everyone go online and get to brewing and dueling! The House Cup will be awarded on July 5th.

Pottermore adds new content from JK Rowling: excerpts from Library books!

The Pottermore Twitter page just sent out some exciting news. The first book in the series has now been updated with brand new exclusive content from JK Rowling: excerpts from some of the Hogwarts library books!

I’ve had a look around and found two book excerpts located in the ‘Moment’ pictured below, titled ‘Harry Becomes An Outcast’. And there a couple more are in the ‘The Library’ and ‘Hagrid’s Secret’ moments.

Go and have a look for yourself and see what you find!
