Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Paperback Prize Pack Giveaway

NOTE: This contest is now closed.

I am so very very excited to be hosting a huge Harry Potter giveaway at The Well-Read Child! In celebration of the paperback release of the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Scholastic is giving away books 5, 6, and 7 to FIVE lucky winners.

That's right:

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!

From the publisher:

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a breathtaking finish to a remarkable series. The final chapter to Harry Potter’s adventures will be 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."

Don't miss out on the chance to own the last three books in this absolutely amazing series!

  9. I'd love to win because I haven't read book 7, but loved 1-6. Thanks!

  10. I would love to win this for my children who love reading Harry Potter and would be perfect for the Summer school break.

  11. I would love to win this Harry Potter Giveaway as I would gift them to my now 13 year old nephew.. We have been reading the books together over the years.. so much fun.
    We go to the library and get the book and then find somewhere to start reading.. Usually it is when he is coming to my house for the evening or day. Sometimes we even let his little sister in on the fun.
    Thanks for the chance

  12. Ahh, I would love to win this because I have always loved Harry Potter as a child. Started reading the first book in 2nd grade. And I need the 6th book to complete my collection :(


  13. I collect all the different versions of the series (I even have the UK adult editions) and I don't have the US 6 or 7 paperback yet!!!!

  14. I would love to win this because I'm a huge HP fan. I've been reading these books since I was ten and I saw the movies right away because I couldn't wait to see my favorite series on the big screen and I loved them. The sixth book is one of my absolute favorites out of the series too!!

  15. I'd love to win this prize pack because I LOVE harry potter and because my I don't have all the books.


  16. I'd love to read these books! I stopped at #4, because I was going to college while starting a family, and never got to finish the series!

    My email address is in my profile, when you click on my name. :)

  17. I'd like to win this prize package because I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan! I don't have any of the books - I was waiting until the series was done. I'd love to add these to my collection.


  18. I'd like to win the books because I actually don't own most of them. I borrowed them from my sister, but would love to have them in my library for future readings (and to give to my future kids one day).

    Now for the boring stuff:
    --I blogged about this here:

  19. I've been on a mission to reread all seven and I *hate* having to haul around those big hardcovers!

  20. I would love to win this prize pack so that I could catch up on the series! I'm a bit behind on my reading, but I look forward to delving into these as soon as possible!

  23. I would love to win these books for my children - especially my son, Duncan. I have nice hardback copies of the books, which Duncan has taken to carrying around, dropping and bumping into things. I've started accumulating a set for him so he'll stop beating up on mine, but we don't have the last books yet. This would be perfect! Thanks for the contest!


  24. My email address is I believe this series is meant for me. I remember picking up the first book in second grade. I read it in one day! Harry Potter posters cover every inch of my bedroom. I enjoy If I win, I can re-read them without having to wait for a copy at the library. Thank you for this opportunity.
