In November 2012, a new type of Harry Potter game experience was released. Called Wonderbook: Book of Spells, the game was met with excitement and great anticipation, as it utilizes a new type of technology to present an immersive and interactive experience, while introducing a number of new canon elements into the Harry Potter universe.

A little while back, in association with Wikia, the Harry Potter Wiki had its first ever Reading Club. Over a couple of weeks, we discussed Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It was enjoyed so much that we've decided to bring it back!

Travel back in time to New Year's Eve of 2010 and view the Tom Riddle article as it appeared two years ago. At that time, most of the article that we have today was already in place, but since then, there have been some significant additions, including a new page-top quote, a signature image, more info for behind the scenes, a Media section courtesy of Wikia and an imagecat link. Take a look, and see how far we've come, and keep an eye out for the next Time-Turned article. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:26, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
So, it's a bit late, but for Christmas, the Harry Potter Wiki asked if you had any Harry Potter related items on your list for Christmas. Here's what you had to say:
- Yes - Wonderbook: Book of Spells - 11.55% (227 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter for Kinect - 3.87% (76 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Wizard's Collection - 12.72% (250 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Limited Edition - 3.76% (74 votes)
- Yes - Something else - 50.71% (997 votes)
- No - 17.4% (342 votes)

That's the subject of our next poll, so get in those votes, and in the next couple of weeks, we'll reveal just how many got at least some of what they wished for.
