Too bad they always seem to exclude USA territories from entry. has a mental breakdown WHYYYYYYYYYY?!!!?!?!

I’ve already entered. And as it turns out, I didn’t even have to look this one up. I read The Moonstone a few years ago and really enjoyed it, so I knew the authors name. I’d recommend the book, btw.

Everyone is blatantly going to google that haha.

Finally something Canadians can participate in. I do, however, need clarification on how many times we can enter as per these two sections of the contest rules…3 times or only once?

9. Limit of three entries per person and per e-mail account.

10. If there is a dispute over the identity of an entrant whose entry was submitted through email, the entrant will be deemed to be the authorized holder of the email address as determined by the organization responsible for administering the submitted email address. If multiple entries are submitted by the same entrant, only the first entry submitted by that entrant will qualify for entry in the Contest; subsequent entries submitted by that entrant shall be disqualified.

Is point 10 only for disputed entries?

Can anybody clarify?

I believe what they are trying to say is that, if you enter three times with three different answers, they will take the answer you entered first and disquilify the other two. It appears that three e-mails with the same answer will be allowed.

“Disqualify” . . . sorry . . .

Will the Collector’s Edition include the typographical errors?

Posted by dcrazmo on January 08, 2009, 02:57 PM report to moderator

Probably, I’m sure they didn’t reprint them. Mine had errors as well.

Very shoddy for $100. And not worthy of Ms. Rowling.

We wish it was $ 100…. Now that the collectors editions are all gone from Amazon you can only find it starting from $199, there are people selling it for $400 Why didn’t I get one for christmas!? :(

And what galls me about the elevated prices is that none of that extra money will ever go to the charity for which the initial proceeds were intended. One can be sure that the people selling BTB for $400 will not be donating a dime of it. Profiteering, pure and simple.
