Amazon Germany has now opened a new contest that will give away ten copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard signed by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. To enter, click here and answer the question: "Who inherited Dumbledore's book of "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" in Book seven, choosing between Harry, Ron, or Hermione, and then enter your email address. The contest runs now until December 2, and is open to people ages 18 and older (and does not seem to be limited to residents of Germany).
Good Luck!

sighs these contests are always for 18 ad older o elementary kids. They don’t seem to ever remember that there are still teenagers who started reading HP when they were in elementary school shakes head

Scholastic and Bloomsbury should learn about this, JK ROWLING MUST. These three had done contests for just children. They don’t respect the fandon, that is older.

@Amanda: And MINE just turned 18 day before yesterday! He’s entered, as well!
@Cray: This isn’t a matter of “respecting the fandom” It’s a matter of HOW the contest is run, and WHO it’s for. There had been complaints, before about contest “only for the little kids” and only eligible in ____" This one is for adults, and available to anyone, any where! 18 or over. I must admit, that is the easiest “contest” I’ve ever entered. I don’t think they realize the avalanche of entries they’re going to get! ROFL.

They also ask you to enter your email address below, right?
What happens if you win and they email you but it’s in German. What then?

and presumably the signed copy is a German translation.

¬¬ Then you either reply asking them to send you the message in english or use Google translate…

LOL: the contest rules listed between the options and the send button state that the prize cannot be exchanged by cash XD HA! AS IF!

Not that I care of course – just to own something that JK Rowling has signed would be just wonderful!

Debbie: it said on the site that they’re giving away 10 signed copies of the English collector’s edition.

Thank you for the translation, creaothceann!!

Posted by jen on November 21, 2008, 10:57 AM report to moderator

That was hysterical…

I don’t know what I was thinking, but when it popped up in German, it surprised me. (Typical arrogant american that I am).

Anyway, is “Hermine” German for Hermione?

If I win, I’ll love the copy no matter what language it’s in.

Posted by Freya on November 21, 2008, 12:34 PM report to moderator

Yeah, it’ll be the English version. I don’t think there’s any translation for the collector’s edition.
