[edit] Secret Street View

As Pottermore was introduced to Fans, Jo used a set of clues that were released on various fan web sites. The clues were sets of coordinates that led to a website called Secret Street View.

From Secret Street View ...

J.K. Rowling has something new to announce.

This is not a new book, but it is something equally exciting. As a teaser before the official announcement, ten letters have been hidden on this website for you to find. To locate them you just need to enter ten individual coordinates in the search box and explore.

The coordinates are being revealed among ten Harry Potter fan sites throughout the 15th and 16th of June 2011. Find the correct sites and you could be one of the first to piece the word together.

Good luck to you all.
