Marked Up Book on the Block for FirstBook

Posted by: Melissa

LeaveAMarkAuctions is currently auctioning off a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that has been marked up in the margins, primarily by Paul DeGeorge of Harry and the Potters. Paul provides color commentary, sketches and other ... additional detail ... throughout the book. Joe DeGeorge chimes in and our Frak of PotterCast provides several illustrations. I've also marked up a chapter at Paul's kind request.

You can bid on the book by pledging a certain amount in the comments; all proceeds benefit FirstBook, a wonderful organization whose aim is to provide low-income families with books.

Bidding is open until 11:59 p.m. on February 7, and the winner will also receive, naturally, a commemorative barf bag. The auction was put together by Shooting Stars.

That is a really nice thing for them to do. Me, personally, I won’t bid on it, but I know others will. It should be interesting to see how much it goes for!

Yea, its nice how some people would look at this, and say" You graffitied a book!", but we see it as a positive way to express memories of hp, and to donate to charity.
Great Idea!
