J.K. Rowling

July 31, 2007

Worth about a billion dollars.

J. K. Rowling is now a very rich woman. About a dozen publishers passed on the series. I bet they wish they hadn’t. I wonder how her other books will compare with the Potter series in terms of genre, style, and sales. I saw some article that said she was writing two books concurrently; one for children and one for adults.

Not much else to say about her, but I figured she deserved top billing.

Rowling is 42.

Other birthdays: Richard Griffiths, Michael Biehn, B. J. Novak, Dean Cain, Geoffrey Lewis, Loren Dean, Barry Van Dyke, Wesley Snipes, Ben Chaplin, and Emilia Fox.

    You know, when I was reading this last book, I remember thinking, Wow, how does someone come up with this stuff. She did a wonderful job with the story, and with the attention keeping. I didn’t want to put the book down. Good Job, JK!

    Yeah, she does a good job of stringing the reader along. I hope the kids that got hooked on her books delve into further reading.
