Before the Vampires, there were Wizards (psst... want to win Harry Potter Books? -- Yes, Plural)

HPandtheSorcerersStone_Paperback_lores After months of looking at perfectly sane and respectable adults reading Harry Potter books on my daily commute, I finally gave in and picked up a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It seemed strange that perfectly grown adults would go ga-ga over a children's series; it just seemed so infantile (says the woman who had a Tamaguchi on her keychain that she faithfully took care of until the poor thing pooped itself to death when I left it in the car overnight. That unfortunate incident scared me out of becoming a parent for years.)

Anyhow, I read that first book and never again poked fun at an adult reading Harry Potter on the subway. I may have poked fun at them for other reasons, but never for the Potter books. That book grabbed me like A Wrinkle in Time and had me hooked like The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe y'all. And that pre-teen magic is hard to replicate, know what I mean?

If you don't, you really must enter this contest. And if you do know what I mean, you should still enter this contest.

Get this: paperback sets of the first three books in the Scholastic Harry Potter series are up for grabs for not one, but FIVE lucky muggles:
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaben
The lucky winners will walk away with all three books valued at $40.

Think about it for a sec dear muggle. If you haven't read the series, here's your chance. And if you have already learned the magic of Hogwarts, I bet you would easily attain status of bestest friend / parent / aunt / uncle / cousin / non-creepy relative or family friend with someone you want to impress and / or bribe.

All you witches and wizards need to do is leave a comment and tell us if would you be good like Harry or evil like "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" Lord Voldemort?

Contest closes noon (EST) September 7th [US residents only, please].

COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED -- WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED & ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.
