LeakyCon 2009 is around the corner, so here is a sneak preview of that special one-of-a-kind collection of Harry Potter books, donated by Scholastic and signed by J.K. Rowling, that one lucky LeakyCon registrant will win. Here are some pics (you can see them all in our galleries (they are heavily watermarked for security):

 






The books, as you can see, came with security/authenticity tags, and are individually wrapped in bubble paper for safety; they will stay this way until they change hands with their new owner.

We've also put up a video on today's PotterCast Vlogs (it has just gone live, so the HD portion will begin shortly):



Remember that you may only enter to win this set as a registrant at LeakyCon. Register here.




Other important info:

When I saw the pics of the books, I did this little girly squeal. (I am a little embarrassed about that actually.) I am so happy that I am going to LeakyCon 2009. I would have a heart attack if one my friends or I won the books. I would be happy if one of friends won the books because I would be content just being able to touch one of the books.

I wonder if I can put a Confundus Charm on the Leaky staff so I can win these. I will start practicing now!
