Today’s JKR Twitter Easter Eggs

JKRowling-2014

Any day that a Potter fan can check Twitter and find a slew of tweets from J.K. Rowling is a good day. Her recent trend of answering fan questions, dispelling rumors, and offering new information has been a delightful gift to all of her followers.

Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 21, 2015 And then continued on to address ... Read More »
