On the off chance that you thought Harry Potter was finished – you weren’t right since it’s been affirmed that four new stories will be released, and you don’t even have to wait that long for them.
As indicated by J.K. Rowling’s website, eBooks will be available toward the end of June and we can not wait.
Ever wondered where magic really came from? Introducing the Harry Potter: A Journey Through… non-fiction eBook shorts, adapted from the audiobook Harry Potter: A History of Magic and inspired by the @britishlibrary exhibition of the same name. https://t.co/bsp3X6QTMy pic.twitter.com/FDXIxUKlih

Pottermore – or should I say ‘The computerized heart of the Wizarding World’ – is the writer’s online universe of everything Harry Potter, and it gives us somewhat more detail on what we can expect from the new books.
The four short stories are altogether based on Hogwarts lessons and accompanied by illustrations from London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason.
The website states: “Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling) with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”
The ‘bitesize’ stories promise to ‘take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories’.
It continues: “In addition to exploring the origins of magic through history and folklore, the eBook shorts will also feature notes, manuscript pages and charming sketches as previously seen in Harry Potter: A History of Magic.
The eBooks to look forward to are as follows: Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy, and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures, which will be published in the coming months.
“The first pair, themed on Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, and Potions and Herbology, respectively, will be published on 27 June, while the others will follow soon after. Stay tuned!”
