Harry Potter Giveaway Winners!

Congratulations to our FIVE winners of the Harry Potter Giveaway!

Katie July 13, 2009 8:29 AM:
"one of my favorite parts is in the first book when harry is leaving to go home and he says "im not going home hogwarts is my home"

Rebecca B. July 16, 2009 10:18 AM:
"I wish they had encluded the part with Firenze in H.P. and the Order of the Pheonix. And one of my favorite parts is when the centaurs carry off that evil frog woman Umbridge in the same book as well. Can't wait to see the newest movie soon!"

Ann July 17, 2009 10:29 AM:
"I think my favorite part in the Harry Potter series would be when Harry finds out he's a wizard. He knows it's hard to believe but he also knows that it would explain a lot."

Shana July 18, 2009 10:43 AM:
"one of my favorite parts from the book is on harry birthday in the deathly hollows before everything goes wrong because its actually relatable (about harry and ginny kissing) because older brothers actually do act like that"

Tori July 19, 2009 8:39 PM:
"One of my favorite moments is the big fight scene at the end of the last book. It was amazing."

Katie, Rebecca, Ann, Shana, & Tori you will need to email teens [at!] sno-isle [dot]org with your full name and the library you'd like to pick your prize up at. You have until Tuesday, July 28th at 9pm to notify us. Books not claimed will be re-drawn from the entries that did not win, if the unclaimed exceeds the entires, a new contest may occur.

Stay tuned, as I have two copies of The Siege of Macindaw, the UNRELEASED sixth book in the Ranger's Apprentice series to give away!

Harry Potter Giveaway!! 5 winners! Enter Now!

If you are anything like me, you've finally accepted that there will be no more Harry Potter books but are relishing the fact that there are still a few more HP celebrations to come (starting with this week's 6th movie!!!).

Turns out we aren't the only ones!

The publisher is pretty excited about the long-awaited paperback release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, and because of it, they have given us (Sno-Isle Teens!) five (5!) prize packs of the final three books in the series to give away to five (5!) lucky winners!

Five (5) Winners receive a paperback prize pack:
Book 5 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Book 6 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Book 7 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!

SO...I bet you want to know how to win the set of 3 books. All you have to do is share either one of your favorite moments in the books, OR tell me about one element in the books you WISH had made it into the movies. That's it. That's all you have to do - just comment below with your entry.

You have until 9am on Monday, July 20th to get your comment in! We'll have a random drawing and announce the winners Monday night - so you'll have to check back to see if you win - and then the winners will need to email us at the address we'll provide on the 20th.

Here are the rules: You MUST be between the ages of 12-18. You MUST be able to pick up your prize at one of the 21 Sno-Isle libraries (or be on the bookmobile route). Find a library near you. Note that you can only enter ONCE! :)

The official HP7 summary:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a breathtaking finish to a remarkable series. The final chapter to Harry Potter’s adventures was released in paperback July 7th! It all comes down to this - a final face off between good and evil. You plan to pull out all the stops, but every time you solve one mystery, three more evolve.

And just for fun:
