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:

you have no idea how i long for these books :D when i saw them my stomach did somersaults! they are the most beautiful things i have ever seen. whoever wins is the luckiest person in the world. it seems so unfair to me that all the awesome harry potter stuff happens in either the UK or the US. I don’t get any chance to win any of this cool stuff :(
