J.K. Rowling’s early sketches seen in annotated Philosopher’s Stone


J.K. Rowling has recently sold her annotated copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for over $220,000, and her official website has been updated with a snapshot of the book’s interior. Pictured here is Snape, as unpleasant as always!

Pottermore Snape week commences with poll

This week the Insider is honoring the famed Potion’s master, Severus Snape, with quizzes and fan art, including a recently posted poll on favorite Snape quotes.

This week is all about Severus Snape, Harry’s curiously antagonistic Potions teacher.

From the moment Harry meets Snape in his first year of Hogwarts, he forms a strong dislike for the punishing and severe professor. However, whilst Harry detests the Hogwarts Potions master, we know that many of you are firm fans.

Today, we’re asking you to place your votes for the most memorable quote from Snape. Books One and Two, and the first section of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are available to explore on Pottermore.com, so we’ve taken quotations from those first three books. What are your favourite lines; which quote do you think sums up his character the most?

The results will be revealed this Friday, so get voting now for your winning quote.

We’ll also be testing your knowledge of Snape throughout the week with quizzes and sharing your fanart, so return to the Insider for more. If you’ve got a Facebook or Twitter account, take part in our Snape week there too.

Head to the Pottermore Insider to take the poll!
