J. K. Rowling's Secret Street View

Following the completion of the seven Harry Potter books and eight films, J.K. Rowling has something new to announce. Even though this is not a new book, we have been informed it is something equally exciting.


As a teaser before the official announcement, ten letters have been hidden on the website below for you to find. To locate them you need to find ten sets of coordinates, enter them into the search box one set at a time, and take a look around.

This is the first coordinate: 42.523356,-70.890698

The rest will be revealed among nine other Harry Potter fan sites at intervals throughout the 15th and 16th of June 2011.  Find the coordinates, enter them on the site below and you could be one of the first to piece the word together.

(Please note - These letters are magic, therefore do not exist in the real world...)

Good luck to you all.

If you're having trouble finding the clue, simply zoom in on the map so you enter the street view!

Yeah. I’m pretty sure it’s More Potter.
Maybe the encyclopedia we were promised (or a prequel, or a sequel for the NexGen).

Those would both qualify as books, however, and she made it pretty clear that it’s not a book. Perhaps a TV series?

I don’t think it’s Tv series, that wouldn’t work with Harry potter

I don’t really think it would work either, but that was the first thing that came to mind that wouldn’t be a book and wouldn’t be more movies. Although I suppose they could be doing more animated shorts of the Beadle the Bard Tales – like what they did for The Three Brothers in Deathly Hallows…

yeah, you might be right about that one…
When the 7th book came out Jo said she might write short stories about Harry between the last chapter and the epilogue. it might be that..

OMG! “The domain name pottermore.net has been registered by NetNames.” Maybe Pottermore is a website about something new… another book hopefully

I think you’re onto something MissEverdeen. Maybe it will be an on-line collection of stories, rather than a printed book? I don’t think it would be the Encyclopedia, since I would think she’d want to have that benefit a charity, but some sort of collection of potter-related stories sounds plausible, now that we know it’s some sort of website.

THIS IS SO EXCITING!! I love it immensely—all this hysteria! Mugglenet and other fan sites (including Leaky) have fallen because of it all!! I love you Jo! & somethings up with her website! :)
