Harry Potter book pile contest

You probably already know that the seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling will be released at 12:01 a.m. on July 21. (I love that so many bookstores have midnight parties).

Of course, we’re going to celebrate LibraryThing style, with a book pile contest.

So gather all your wizard and wizardry books (head to Diagon Alley for any supplies you’re missing), pile on the creativity, and take a photo.

The rules.
1. Take a photo of your books.
2. Post the photo to Flickr. You’ll need a Flickr account to do this (it’s easy and free).
3. Tag your photo on Flickr with “LibraryThingHarryPotter
4. If your photo doesn’t show up right away on Flickr’s tag page (a problem if you have a new account), then post a link in the comments of this blog post. We’ll make sure to find it.

The prizes
First prize—$50 to use on Amazon or
Second prize—Free lifetime membership on LibraryThing

The deadline
July 31, 2007 (so you’ll have plenty of time to actually read the book too.)

And once your photo is submitted, don’t worry, the fun isn’t over. There’s plenty of Harry Potter games, discussion, and speculation happening in the Groups.

Join the Hogwarts Express group to discuss all things Potter. Or check out the Watching Harry Potter 7 topic to weigh in on the following:

1. How long will it take to break 10000 copies on LT?
2. How long will it take to become number 1?
3. How many copies are going to be listed in LT the day BEFORE the book is released?

Enjoy! (And remember, if you’re sharing your copy, read fast so the second person doesn’t have to wait too long…)
