I find it pretty funny that so many people are saying it's just what JK Rowling wants so she can boost sales. Er, she's almost one of the richest women in the world - I don't think she needs to boost sales.
But I've come across this attitude towards her quite a lot in various places. She's a very, very famous author because she wrote a magic series of books that millions upon millions of people loved, and all of a sudden she's got an agenda? Yeah right. That's just nothing more than jealousy on the parts of those who didn't manage to do what she's done.
Good for her, I say. And good for any author who writes anything that makes people want to read more. I have nothing but respect and admiration for JK.
but what is the old saying you cant be to rich, or to good looking?
lol and the the DaVinci Code, was one of the miost over rated books of all time.
