Harry Potter book pile contest winners

Thanks to everyone for entering the Harry Potter book pile contest, and providing me with yet another incredibly creative batch of entries (you certainly don’t make judging easy!)*

The winner! j2.0 (janetmck on Flickr), with the aptly named “Parceltongue?” gets a $50 gift certificate to use at a bookstore of their choice.

Second prize—and a lifetime gift membership—goes to ellen.w (et al.), with proof that reading is social :)

And because there were just too many great entries, I’m also giving annual memberships to 5** runners up—pictured below.***

“McGonagall goes after the quill”.

Jenglo with
“…he who shall not be named…”

And lastly, playful, who reminds us that there is life (and indeed, books!) beyond Harry Potter…

Stay tuned, we’ll announce the winners of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows review contest soon.

You can see all of the entries under the LibraryThingHarryPotter tag on Flickr, and check out our own book pile archive for all the past contest winners.

*I blame the delay in posting the winners entirely on J.K. Rowling. After finishing book 7, I had to go back and re-read 1-7 again (thus cutting into my nightly work hours).
**For a total of seven winners—coincidence? I think not.
**Email me (abbylibrarything.com) to claim your prizes! Oh, and include your LT user names so I can update this post with the right attributions…
