  Potter cafe to become Chinese restaurant?
Updated 23 February 2003, 11.24

Elaine's not happy that the cafe where JK first wrote Harry Potter may be sold.

She thinks it should be turned into a Potter cafe where people can read the books while having a coffee.

"I read on the CBBC boards recently that they were going to turn the Nicolson where JK first started her Harry Potter books, into a Chinese restaurant.

I mentioned this to my friends and they all had quite similar reactions.

We all think that they should keep the cafe how it is now.

Maybe even turn it into a Harry Potter cafe where people could come in and have a cup of coffee while reading the Potter books.

I just can't bear the thought of having this place turned into some Chinese restaurant.

Tourist attraction

If all the people around the world knew that this is where JK Rowling first started her books, this cafe might even turn into a tourist spot.

Some of my friends even think that JK should buy the cafe, after all it is the place where Harry Potter was born!"
