jk rowling reveals reason behind secret pen name robert galbraithe

J.K. Rowling put a real Confundus charm on us!

After making a beloved name for herself as an author by writing the already classic Harry Potter series, she chose to give that name up and write under a pseudonym!

J.K. Rowling Disses 50 Shades Of Grey

Now this is a rags to riches to even MORE RICHES story!

J.K. Rowling has officially listed her old eight bedroom house in Edinburgh, Scotland on the market and this house is IMMACULATE.

The Harry Potter queen wanted more room for her kiddies to play and she's asking for $3.7 million.

It's okay though, because her new digs has a $250K Hogwarts playground!!!

Rowling's former palace is in a heavily exclusive neighborhood so potential buyers won't have to worry about any annoying Muggles neighbors!

Check out the pics from J.K.'s former home (below)!

So much ripe-tomato red and bright, sunny yellow… GORGEOUS!

Back in April we gushed over the juicy filling of J.K. Rowling's post-Potter literary casserole, Casual Vacancy

And now Miss Rowling has officially released the novel's cover art designed by Mario J. Pulice, and we vote YES YES YES on the final product!

We adore the vibrant simplicity, and the voting-ballot hint of what might be at the center of the book's inner mysteries…

Just stare at the book face (above) and let all that ominous cheerfulness absorb into your system so you'll be ready for the book's release THIS September 27th!

Potterheads, U onboard?

owls abandoned harry potter england

So sad to think that so many living things have endured such mistreatment and neglect all at the expense of a fad!

Due to the success of the Harry Potter book series and subsequent film adaptations, many sought out their own pet owls just like the young wizard had, but now that the final movie has been released, hundreds of the birds - which can live up to 20 years - have been abandoned all over England!
