Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Easter Egg - Ministry of Magic Dial-Up

Look on page 125 at the bottom. The quote is:

"No, no, I'm sure it's fine," said Mr. Weasley, holding the receiver above his head and peering at the dial. "let's see...six..." he dialed the number, "two...four...and another four...and another two..."

The number they dial is 62442. If you look on a standard telephone, there are letters underneath the numbers. What five-letter word would JK Rowling use for the Ministry? MAGIC! JK Rowling would use the best word for the job, and she did.

forceuses, i dont know what you're talking about. the sorceres stone wasn't in harry's vault, it was in a different one that hagrid stopped by on his way. Remember the goblin that scrathed his fingernail on the door? reread the part, you'll see.

it says that the Sorcerer's, or Philosopher's, stone, was found in Harry's parent's vault at Gringotts Bank. Ron and Hermione then went on to believe that Harry's parents stole the Stone. P.S. Don't ask me how I figured this out from her writing. I saw "Nicholas" and "stone" and then I began to see bits and pieces of the rest.

Also, if you click on the brush on her table you will be taken to extra stuff. if you click on the on/off switch on the radio to turn it off, and then turn it back on you will get a funny radio skit.

I thought there were only 5 books! Until, of course, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out in May. But that's only 6!
