Marked Up Book on the Block for FirstBook

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.

It’s quickly soaring out of my price range which is too bad because it looks hilarious/awesome. I do hope that we’ll get to see more of it after the auction ends.

I have to admit that I am awfully tempted to auction for this book; then I must remind myself that I am a poor college student and it is probably wiser to dedicate my money, shall we say, to other things. Congratulations to the person who does obtain this wonderful book!

I love the thought bubbles above Harry’s and Scabber’s heads. Now that I’ve seen a Harry and a Ron from the book I really want to see a Hermione. This was a great idea to earn some money for a fantastic charity.

I’m not sure if this is just me, but I clicked the link in this post and then the back button and I accessed someone elses myleaky profile/main page? Then I was clicking around trying to sign out and I came across someone elses page? I’m new to myleaky (I literally just registered), but I don’t think it’s normal to see "Welcome Back, (someone that’s not me) at the top of the main page? twice?

Poor college kids need not apply. The Bidding really jumped quickly out of my reach, ah well—it’s for a good cause!
