More Help For Our Hard-Core Harry Potter Trivia Contest

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out on DVD Tuesday, and we here at the Houston Press are giving them away.

Well, we're not actually giving them away -- we're making you earn them.

At 6 p.m. Friday we'll be posting one hard-ass Harry Potter trivia quiz, and the first three people to send the correct answers to hairballscontest@houstonpress.com get the DVD of the movie, which -- despite its title -- is not about Keith Richards' heroin treatments.

We took a look at the quiz, and realized even loyal Potter-ites might need some help.

So we're giving you a heads-up on one question each day, and our best guesses. Feel free to ignore our guesses and google.

Today's question:

What object does Dumbledore confess to seeing in the Mirror of Erised?

Ah, this one's easy!!! Especially since J.K. Rowling broke that little piece of news about ol' Dumbledore after the last book came out.

So what was Dumbledore shown as being his heart's desire?

a) This.

b) This.

c) This.

d) This.
