Harry Potter fans now have the chance to enter Pottermore.com early!

There is now been new information released on
how Harry Potter fans can enter the upcoming
Pottermore.com website EARLY!

"Each day for seven days, from 31 July to 6 August,
we will be placing a clue on the Pottermore homepage
to help you find The Magical Quill."

"The Magical Quill detects the birth of a magical child
and writes his or her name down in a large book."

"Every year, Professor McGonagall checks the book and sends owls to the children
who are turning eleven, to inform them that they have a place at Hogwarts.
The lucky few who locate The Magical Quill during the Magical Quill challenge
(which will run from 31 July to 6 August 2011) will have the chance to register
for Pottermore early and gain access to the site before it opens to all in October 2011."

"There will be a new clue every day, and each clue will relate to a different book in the
Harry Potter series. On Day 1 the clue will relate to the first Harry Potter book,
HARRY POTTER and the Sorcerer’s Stone, on Day 2 the clue will relate to  
HARRY POTTER and the Chamber of Secrets, and so forth."

"The clues will also vary in difficulty. On Days 1-3 the clues will be harder,
and on Days 4-7 the clues will be easier."

"To find The Magical Quill, you need to solve the clue and add the answer
to the end of the web address http://quill.pottermore.com .
This will lead you to a website where The Magical Quill will be located
while early access places are available. "

Clue: How many books are there in the Harry Potter series?
Multiply this number by 10. Answer: 70

Next, add this number to the end of the website address.
In this case it would be http://quill.pottermore.com/70
Then hit ‘Return’ to go to the website where The Magical Quill is located.
