Marked Up Book on the Block for FirstBook

LeaveAMarkAuctions is currently auctioning off a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that has been marked up in the margins, primarily by Paul DeGeorge of Harry and the Potters. Paul provides color commentary, sketches and other ... additional detail ... throughout the book. Joe DeGeorge chimes in and our Frak of PotterCast provides several illustrations. I've also marked up a chapter at Paul's kind request.

You can bid on the book by pledging a certain amount in the comments; all proceeds benefit FirstBook, a wonderful organization whose aim is to provide low-income families with books.

Bidding is open until 11:59 p.m. on February 7, and the winner will also receive, naturally, a commemorative barf bag. The auction was put together by Shooting Stars.

I wish I had money to bid on this. I think all children should have books of their own even if their parents cant afford to buy some. I hope this goes for a lot of $$.

Wow, that is awesome! Too expensive for me though, I had a hard enough time justifying to myself that I spent £50 on Beedle. But yay, I hope people bid even higher, that would be great! (What is a barf bag though? Maybe something is lost in translation, but it sounds slightly… gross. ^^ )

Awesome! That would be such a fun fandom-y thing to have. Your own exclusive book commentary and drawings… Great idea!

I hope it does well, I am sure it will. I don’t have any money, so I can’t help there, not like if I did I would be able to compete, lol. Yes I agree annotated books are great. I just got an annotated copy of Alice in Wonderland for Chirstmas, and I still want the Pride and Prejudice and Dracula that are annotated. Really awesome!

LOL! You know, I’ve always wanted to get a second set of the books so that I could doodle in them, but I love the books so much that I don’t want to mess them up! D:
