LeakyCon 2009 is around the corner, so here is a sneak preview of that special one-of-a-kind collection of Harry Potter books, donated by Scholastic and signed by J.K. Rowling, that one lucky LeakyCon registrant will win. Here are some pics (you can see them all in our galleries (they are heavily watermarked for security):

 






The books, as you can see, came with security/authenticity tags, and are individually wrapped in bubble paper for safety; they will stay this way until they change hands with their new owner.

We've also put up a video on today's PotterCast Vlogs (it has just gone live, so the HD portion will begin shortly):



Remember that you may only enter to win this set as a registrant at LeakyCon. Register here.




Other important info:

Remember our tickets are selling out fast, and if you're waiting at all now's the time: Register here.

REMINDER: Tickets to ALL of our keynotes are going fast (and keynotes do not clash with ANY other programming: there is no chance that when signing up for one you will miss anything else). Here, again, are the links to our other two terrific panels:

(And do not wait to see if you've won to buy a ticket: if you already have a ticket and you win, we will refund you; the winners will be announced the week before the conference). Copy and paste these into your twitter:

Just so you know, the video says it is set to private. You may want to fix that. :)

I really really want to go, and I"m sure (with some convincing) my parents would let me, but…there is a lot going on with us, and I’m not sure if they would want to make 6 trips in/out of Boston for a Harry Potter convention. We only liv an hour away, so we wouldn’t stay in a hotel.
