[Tiny] Review: Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists
I will have to read this! Can't believe it's the 20th anniversary of Potter. I read this recently too. I liked the Slughorn chapter the best. Pottermore puts me in Slytherin personally, I feel more Ravenclaw and I like to know that Slytherin characters have some redeeming qualities. Pottermore sorted me as Ravenclaw, which I have always felt is my true house, but some other quizzes have put me in Slytherin.

This is the second installment of the Pottermore Presents short stories series. Apart from that part the eBook includes a list of all wizard ministers and a short description of their doings, including their time being in office. This eBook also follows the same pattern as the last one. After every described person, there is information about places or objects that form a connection. Just as Umbridge stands in connection with Azkaban, the Ministry of Magic and the Ministers themselves she worked at the Ministry of Magic after all and tried her best to influence the current Ministers of Magic.
