Harry Potter Fanatics Unite

Comments (2)

Shelfari is running a great competition called Seven Days of Harry Potter.  The grand prize is a signed first edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  First prize is five tickets to see Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix.  Second prize is a broomstick.

As you know from reading this blog I’m a huge reader.  I tend not to be a trendy reader so it surprised even me that I’ve loved the Harry Potter books (as is Amy.)  Today is the day it begins again.  I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow.

And – for all you readers out there, the New York Times has a fun article today titled C.E.O. Libraries Reveal Keys to Success.

    Hey. You might also want to submit your review to LibraryThing. We don’t have Amazon millions, so we decided to focus on what makes us better: we’re much larger–for example, the HP group on Shelfari has 121 messages, the one on LibraryThing more than 11,000–and more friendly. So, there are fifty prizes, not two, and we’ve removed the incentive to avoid giving others’ reviews a thumbs-up.

    Who decides which books get press (Harry Potter) and which get censored? After all, censorship is becoming America’s favorite past-time. The US gov’t (and their corporate friends), already detain protesters, ban books like “America Deceived” from Amazon and Wikipedia, shut down Imus and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever (especially for books).
