Pottermore has a new addition to the Hogwarts library – a foreword to Book of Spells by Miranda Goshawk.
As a promotion for Sony’s new Wonderbook: Book of Spells, Pottermore has added the Book of Spells to the Hogwarts library, found in Chapter 12, Moment 1 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Users can venture into the Restricted Section of the library to collect the 200-year-old textbook, and it will then be added to your trunk. You also receive a new badge called “Book of Spells” for your profile if you collect the book.
Once collected, a video foreword to the novel will play, narrated by Miranda Goshawk herself. The video is more like the introduction to the game itself, but it provides some interesting information. In the video, Goshawk tells how the Book of Spells came to be, and even a little bit about herself (she was born into a poor family, the last of nine sisters…). If you don’t want to take the time to collect the book, you can view it here. It is definitely worth a watch!
