Harry Potter book 6 title announced

Posted by John Kirk (30th Jun 2004, 16:03) -

JK Rowling has now announced the title to the 6th Harry Potter novel (although she says it will be a while before it's finished) on her official website. Title and instructions on how to verify it below.

The title is "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".

If you go to the main "desktop" area of the site, there's a portkey item in the middle (up and right of the keyring), which says "?" when you hover over it. Click on that, and you see a doorway. Click on the handle to open the door, and then you see a brick wall (like Diagon Alley). You can click on some of these bricks, and they will get pushed in - click around the screen to find them. Once you've found them all, they'll reset so that they're not pushed in. You need to press them in the order 3-4-2-5-1 (numbering from top to bottom). That removes the wall. Then click on the fan, which blows a piece of paper towards the screen, and reveals the title.

very cool, but quite an annoying way of disseminating information :-)

I did like her comment elsewhere on the site, where she says that she went to a Harry Potter chatroom but nobody was interested in her theories about book 7 :)
