J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore now accepting enrollments

Turns out that Hogwarts isn’t an easy school to get into. Pottermore

Pottermore, J.K. Rowling’s interactive Website for fans of her Harry Potter series (as well as the only place to buy eBook versions of the tomes, began the search for its first million members over the weekend – and the competition is tight.

Fans have one chance per day (through Saturday) to gain access, by answering a trivia question from the books and attaching the answer to the end of a specific Web address. First, though, they’ll have to find the “Magical Quill” to determine the question.

“The Magical Quill is located in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” the site explains. “It detects the birth of a magical child and writes his or her name down in a large book. Every year, Professor McGonagall checks the book and sends owls to the children who are turning eleven, to inform them that they have a place at Hogwarts. The lucky few who locate The Magical Quill during the Magical Quill challenge (which will run from 31 July to 6 August 2011) will have the chance to register for Pottermore early and gain access to the site before it opens.”

Most visitors are going to be met with the greeting shown in the picture accompanying this story. Spots go fast – and you really have to know your Potter trivia to stand a chance.

1 million people worldwide will gain entrance to the site for the beta test. The rest of us Muggles will be welcomed in October.
