How do you unlock the next spell in Pottermore?

Question by HPFreak: How do you unlock the next spell in Pottermore?
Ok, Im in Pottermore and I found the one spell book and bought the others. I can do all the spells in the one I found but not in the ones I bought. It seems like no matter how many times I practice, I can’t get to the next one. And dueling is down at the moment, does it have to do with that? Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by Hermione
I was wondering the same thing as well. I also tried practicing one spell multiple times, but the thing that I realized is that you don’t/can’t unlock those spells. You already have them, but you can’t practice them before you duel. Of course, that is just a theory. I think so because if you could unlock them wouldn’t there be a “lock” sign over the spells you can’t practice?

Either way, I doubt you can unlock them.

For individuals who haven’t browsed the books inside the series or can’t recall the particulars, this is really the plot for that approaching film. Just 2, the 3 main protagonists Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley continue their look for the horcruxes. They do this on their own merely for the reason that they do not want the main antagonist The almighty Voldemort to discover. They’ll search for the fourth horcrux in Gringotts Bank and also the fifth horcrux in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The sixth horcrux would be the toughest to eradicate as Voldemort has this by his side. Besides the suspenseful try to find the horcruxes, you’ll also have a war in Hogwarts which indicates this film is going to be action-packed. You’ll also have a big thought in the finish so ensure to watch this film!HORCRUX why is it important?

A horcrux is any living or non-living factor that the dark wizard (inside this situation, Voldemort) uses to place component of his soul in. When the horcrux is destroyed, the soul can also be destroyed. Hence, a horcrux is usually protected by enchantments or curses. It could simply be destroyed by several things like venom of the basilisk or fiendfyre.

In HARRY POTTER And Also The HALF-Bloodstream PRINCE, it says Voldemort, when he could be a student, asked Professor Slughorn about horcruxes and in that conversation, he pointed out that 7 could be a variety which has magical qualities. This brought Headmaster Albus Dumbledore to feel that Voldemort produced 6 horcruxes to cover places of his soul which the seventh a component of his soul will be the one which resides in his personal physique.

In HARRY POTTER And Also The SORCERER’S STONE, it had been says when Voldemort utilised the Avada Kedavra curse to kill infant Harry, the curse rebounded on Voldemort and developed a lightning scar on Harry’s temple.

What Kind of Bed Would Harry Potter Sleep In?

Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 14, 2009

Would Harry Potter sleep in a Platform Bed that he could hover above, or a Storage Bed to store his magical charms in? How can the stars of “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” rest at the end of a day of tough wizardry? Home and Bedroom Furniture thinks it has the answer with it’s wide variety of beautiful and Magical Beds that will fit every wizards taste. To prove it, they are having a “Magical Bedroom Furniture Sale”. From now until the end of May, every item in their online store will be on sale for 10% off their already discounted prices. Simply enter the code “magic” into the coupon box at checkout and you will cast a spell getting yourself a 10% discount on everything you buy.

As “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” opens in theaters this week, fans will be lining up in droves to catch their favorite boy wizard in action. Harry, exhausted from the rigors Dumbledore has put him through in preparation for the final battle, could use nothing more than a little rest. Home and Bedroom is happy to accommodate Harry and all the residents of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft with a wide choice of comfy beds on which to lay their heads at night. With the wizardry of manufacturers Hillsdale Furniture and Fashion Bed Group, Harry Potter fans can cast a J.K. Rowling’s spell on their own bedrooms.

In the teaser for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” Professor Albus Dumbledore rumbles in a hesitant, half-apologetic baritone, “Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry.” Never one to back down from a challenge, Harry will undoubtedly comply with this Herculean request. But at the end of a hard day of casting spells, there’s probably nothing he would like better than to pull the covers back up over his head and rest his head and Wand. To make his rest even more soothing, he might consider adding an Organic Mattress from Keetsa Mattresses.

In this latest film installment in the Harry Potter series, Harry, Hermoine, Ron and the gang will be faced with a new set of dangers lurking inside the castle walls. With the defeat of Voldemort at the forefront of his mind, Harry will spend hours interpreting the ancient scribbles written in the margins of a new Potions Book. At the end of the day, a Platform Bed by Modus Furniture could be the perfect place for Harry to lie down and dream up his next Magical defense.

But wizardry isn’t all that lies in store for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” filmgoers. Romance is also promised as part of the plot when “A box of love potion-laced chocolates ends up in the wrong hands and changes everything.” Found on Harry’s bed, they’ll cast a different kind of spell on their devourer. Perhaps one of the Magical Bar Stools from Pastel Furniture would be the perfect place for a Wizard to figure his way out of romantic entanglements and mortal dangers.

Harry Potter Costumes and Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner, so don’t be caught in the dark as a “Muggle”. Join the gang from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this Halloween with Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley Costumes.

Young witches and warlocks can trick or treat with their official Hogwarts robes, scarves, beanies and ties from the Houses of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw,or Hufflepuff. No Harry Potter costume is complete without a proper wand and witches hat. To complete Hermione Granger’s costume, do not forget to get the tangled mass of hair wig. Your little wizards may even want to get in a game of Quidditch on Halloween with the Golden Snitch and Quidditch Goggles and Robes.
Youngsters can even get in the act with an adorable Hedwig the owl costume. I found Dobbie, the house elf mask very realistic. For the Demon in your child, check out the Dementor, Death Eater or Lord Voldemort Costumes, complete with masks and gnarly hands.


Adults, don’t feel left out. You can join the fun with a Hagrid mask and robes or dress up as a Dementor, Death Eater or (don’t say this outloud) Lord Voldemort. The Mad Eye Moody Mask is a favorite of the aurors. I really love the Dumbledore Mask with the Beard.

For the gals, you may choose to go as Professor McGonagall with her unique witches hat or perhaps Madame Hooch. If you are feeling really Evil, there is even a Beatrix costume.

To top off the costumes and complete the effect, there are witches brooms and an authentic Harry Potter Lantern that is a battery operated replica lantern with a yellow light displaying the Hogwarts Crest and it really lights up! I also like the sorting hat and I may use that as the treat jar for the kids to reach in and get their goodies.

If you and your kids enjoyed the Harry Potter books and movies, you may really enjoy having a Hogwarts Halloween party. There are plenty of characters and costumes to go around and you can have a lot of fun.

How To Turn Your Children Into Reading Champions

Children who don’t like to read are at a disadvantage. Good reading habits will not only help them get better grades in school; it will help them succeed in just about any profession they choose. Besides, instilling a love of reading in them will open up a world of learning and imagination that will last their whole life. Here’s how to improve your children’s reading skills.
. Make reading fun. When your children are small, read to them before bedtime. Make it a happy time when you’re sharing books that bring joy to them. When they get bigger, encourage them to find a comfortable spot in your house where they can settle in and read for some “quiet time” each day. By doing this, your kids will associate reading with happy, peaceful times.
. Choose appropriate books. Children sometimes try to read books that are beyond their reading level, and this becomes a negative, frustrating experience. Help them to choose  books that are appropriate for their reading level and interests.
. Encourage them to follow favorite authors. This is easy to do today, since most authors have Web sites and blogs, and your child can easily find them online. By following an author this way, you can also find out when they’re doing book signings and appearances in your area, and you can take your child to one of them.
. Read their favorite books. When your child develops an interest in a certain book, read it yourself so you can talk intelligently with your child about it. Have conversations about the characters and the plot (i.e., “Who dies in the new Harry Potter book?”). This will improve your child’s reading comprehension, and will keep the book alive in their mind.
. Have a reading lesson plan. Give them reading goals. This is especially good during summer, when you can set a goal of how many books you’d like your child to read over several months. Go to the library and pick out another book as your child finishes each title on the list.
. Reward them for achievement. When your child meets a reading goal or gets a good mark in school for reading, make sure you reward that effort. By giving positive feedback and rewards, you’ll sow the seeds for a lifelong love of reading.
