Harry Potter Mania!

Well....It's Harry Potter time again folks!

September 23, 2008 is the 10th (can you believe it the TENTH) anniversary of "Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone."

A new edition of the book is being released with brand new cover art on 9/23/2008--just 2 days shy of my birthday!

On December 4, 2008, "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" will be released. This is the book that Dumbledore left Hermione in his will. It is very important in the last 2 books. I want to get this one for sure! I love the Hogwarts library" book that I have, "Quidditch through the Ages". I want to get this one: "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them," too!

I LOVE Harry Potter. I've read the series 3 times all the way through. They are such good reads & I truly can't put them down while I'm reading them.

I've even taken the Accelerated Reader tests on them! My students get a big kick out of that!

So, you might ask, why, oh why, is Stephanie blogging about Harry Potter? Well it just so happens to be for a HUGE-MAJOR-KICK BUTT-AWESOME giveaway on Momdot!

Momdot is giving away 1 huge grand prize of a 10th Anniversary Edition of the Box Set, which has been spiffed up with all the special anniversary stuff (such as BRAND NEW cover art!) Scholastic is their sponsor & we all know I LOVE Scholastic. Half of my classroom library is from scholastic! I'm a major scholastic supporter! One person will win the grand prize & then 4 people will win the 10th Anniversary edition copy of the "Sorcerer's Stone" and a commemorative pin. I'd love to win either prize!
