Harry Potter and the Sorcerers' Stone! (EDIT)




Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry and the Potters Myspace!
EDIT: Since Melissa marked up one chapter of this, I wanted to mention my review for her book Harry, A History. Check it out:

http://shootingstarsmag.blogspot.com/2009/02/review-harry-history-by-melissa-anelli.html

This book features:

Commentary throughout by Paul DeGeorge of Harry and the Potters

Chapter 12 marked up by Melissa Anelli, webmistress of the Leaky Cauldron and author of NY Times bestseller, "Harry, A History".

8 original drawings by Frankie Franco III, illustrator and host of Pottercast

Alternate book jacket illustrated by Joe DeGeorge of Harry and the Potters

Commemorative barf bag



As you can see from the pictures on top, Paul did a fabulous job marking this book up and I honestly wish I could keep it myself. Now, he's no J.K. Rowling, but he's a definitive part of the Harry Potter community and as such, this is a really amazing book to have. So please please please bid what you can! You want this in your life, I promise you!

For those of you that are new, welcome to the auctions. In a second, I'll post the rules, but I wanted to let you know that this week is officially Harry Potter HERE for the auction and on my OTHER blog, Shooting Stars Zine (interview/mini contest and review coming soon on there), so check it out and bookmark the sites so you don't forget.

Now, on to the rules!

** HOW TO BID: Leave a comment on the auctioned post with the amount you want to bid for. Remember that 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit First Book - so it's win, win! The Leave a Mark page on First Book is ONLY for the winner (unless you want to donate separately, aside from the auctions, which we encourage!)...if you bid the most, your name will be announced at the ending date of the auction, and if provided with an email address, we will contact you. If you don't leave an email addy, MAKE SURE to check back.

**The first person who bids has to START at five dollars, so each book will sell for at least that much. If you want to bid above that, it has to go up in fifty cent increments, so people aren't going up by a penny or a dime. You CAN go up by MORE than fifty cents though!

Ex. Starts at five dollars, will go to five fifty, will go to six dollars, etc.

That's it! Get bidding! :) This auction will run until Saturday, February 7th at 11:59 P.M. EST!!!
Photobucket

Any questions? Leave them in the comments or email me at Lauren51990 AT aol DOT com
Also, get in touch if you want to see some of Pauls' other scans of the book. I tried to post more, but some of them got cut off b/c the page isn't big enough!

Great idea and so much to do to get it this far You should make copies of the book with comments and sell the copies - J.K.Rowling did it with Beetle the Bard - why not you as well?!! Then more of us can see your work and appreciate it and more $$ will be raised!!! I bid 80

I agree with RAHPF, cuz Imm low on $ but would luv to have this....

Zivlok said...

You know what would be awesome? If whomever wins sets up some sort of thing were people can donate to FirstBook, and whenever 5 bucks is raised, a page is scanned in. Then, that would end up making 5 times 350-odd pages plus the actual auction price!

HARRY POTTER WEEK CONTINUES!

Sorry to break into the auction, but I wanted to leave you all with a link for an interview/contest with the girls behind The Wizard Rockumentary. Interested? Check it out! All comments are appreciated. ;-)

Thanks for bidding! I can't believe how high it has gotten. :)

Christine said...

I love First Book (and Harry and the Potters, of course), but this has moved beyond my range. Any chance other copies will follow?

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Christine: I don't know, that's up to Paul or even Joe next time around. We will be doing more auctions later this year though and there will be one more this month that's non-HP related.

I'm all for any chance to get books into the hands of kids. This past December, we paired with a university to provide books to kids - each child was able to request a specific title to receive. It was quite wonderful. Keep up the good work. I'm putting my money on you - - $300.00

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Judith: Wow! Thank you so much. I definitely agree that getting books to children is amazing, and I'm really glad that First Book agreed to team up with us for this project. Again, thank you. It means a lot.

beyondtheevil6 wins i guess...I think J.k. rowling should do something like this and publish it as like "Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone Commentary Edition"

Zivlok said...

Congrats to beyondtheveil!

Paul said...

Wow - totally triumphant! I'm tempted to do this a few more times and just keep bringing in $300 a pop for charities!

Thanks so much to all the bidders and congratulations to beyondtheveil6!!!! I hope you like the book!

Paul: Thanks so much for helping! And you should DEFINITELY do this again. I think Chambers is next? haha :)

I'm sure she'll love the book. It's amazing.
