J.K. Rowling Website — Very Interactive

December 21st, 2006

The website also provides a difficult interactive that allows you to learn the name of the forthcoming and final Harry book.It doesn’t access very well, either because there’s something wrong with the links, or because it is heavily used.But here are the instructions for that part of it, courtesy of today’s NY Times.  Remember to have your audio enabled.  It’s pretty good stuff.

[ “Meanwhile, she set up a test for her Potter fans.

If you go to jkrowling.com, click on the eraser and you will be taken to a room — you’ll see a window, a door and a mirror.  (By my own experience this link doesn’t work, you have to get there via the one I provided above; nor does the eraser thingie work.)

If you go to , click on the eraser and you will be taken to a room — you’ll see a window, a door and a mirror. In the mirror, you’ll see a hallway. Click on the farthest doorknob and look for the Christmas tree. Then click on the center of the door next to the mirror and a wreath appears. Then click on the top of the mirror and you’ll see a garland.

Look for a cobweb next to the door. Click on it, and it will disappear. Now, look at the chimes in the window. (All of this works, by my experience, up to here — then it just quits working; the key doesn’t appear.  Your cursor on the door knob turns the knob, but nothing else happens.) Click on the second chime to the right, and hold it down. The chime will turn into the key, which opens the door. Click on the wrapped gift behind the door, then click on it again and figure out the title yourself by playing a game of hangman.” ]

However, by now you all already know the title of the last book is: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. 

Love, C.

    As of now, there are currently 0 hits on Google for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” if you put it in quotes to search for the whole phrase. Anybody want to take a bet on what that hit count’s going to be by Saturday a.m.?

    It should probably be “Harry Potter and the Accursed Organ” since after I closed the site, my computer won’t stop playing her background music of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

    Other than that, everything went fine with the site, even to getting the key. The rubbish bin was terribly entertaining.

    I found out how to revive the plant when you click on the eraser!
    click and drag the green potion bottle and allow 6 drops to fall on the plant,then let it fall after 6 drops. Then click and drag the red bottle and allow 3 drops to fall, the plant should change to a flower and you will get a drawing or early writing of jkrowling for your scrapbook
