Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows was the focus of our attention yesterday.
And the prize was…
- To open Waterstone’s, Deansgate Harry Potter shelves at Midnight on Friday
- A copy of the hallowed book (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) [Children’s Edition])
- 10 books from the children’s section
- To be treated as a VIP for the night.
We took our other children to watch and they were asked to lend a hand too. The press took photos, whether we appear in papers with so many other grand openings going on is a moot point but we all enjoyed the attention.
For those of you who don’t know Amazon have set-up Harry Potter World, where they’ve got a whole of Harry Potter stuff.
Plus they’ve a nice trailer for the new film and Stephen Fry giving a teaser about his recording of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
They’re also showing the most Harry Potterish town in the UL and there’s a muggle counter!
I loved it, great marketing and well done Amazon.
