How much do you want to get your hands on J.K. Rowling's handwritten companion book to the Harry Potter series? Enough to write and essay about wizards?
Amazon.com is sponsoring the Beedle the Bard Writing Contest, "an opportunity for Muggles to compete for the chance of a lifetime." The winner will receive a trip for two to London and will get to peruse the ultra-rare The Tales of Beedle the Bard for an entire weekend.
Only seven copies of J.K. Rowling's
The Tales of Beedle the Bard exist.
To enter, you must answer one of the three following questions, in 100 words or less:
1. What songs do wizards use to celebrate birthdays?
2. What other sports to wizards play besides Quidditch?
3. What have you learned from the Harry Potter series that you use in everyday life?
Contest deadline is April 22, and winners will be chosen in two categories: 13-17 years; 18 and older. For more details on the contest and how the winner will be selected, click here.
Amazon purchased on of the seven copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard for $4 million in December 2007.
