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.

I think I’d have to buy a special environmentally controlled space if I won these. You know, something like where the Declaration of Independence is stored. It would be great!

Guess That Book

Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley were Harry's only living relatives. They were Muggles who hated and despised magic in any form, which meant that Harry was about as welcome in their house as dry rot.
