Rowling! The Harry Potter series has been an integral part of my childhood and since I've practically grown up with Harry, getting a chance to relive his Hogwarts' experience by getting sorted into a house, learning to cast spells and brew potions is like a feast for me!”

Currently in the Beta version, you can read the first two books only, but it's still thrilling to know all the small bits of information. Did you know Minerva McGonagall was married to a colleague in the Ministry, when she used to work there? Fun right? You also have the pleasure to experience the whole excitement of getting your first welcome mail, your first bank account, your school supplies, your first wand, and even sorting into the one of the Houses at Hogwarts! Being among the chosen million to try out the Beta site, it's totally something I can brag about!”
