JK's take

There's been some, in my opinion, sanctimonious horror at JK Rowlings take of some 300 million dollars last year. I thought it was fantastic - a writer more than recognized for her work financially.

I think JK deserves it - I read somewhere that when she was submitting to publishers she typed out three separate copies because she couldn't afford the cost of going to a photocopier. Not sure if that's true or not, but she's come a long way. I read the speech she did at Harvard, and I thought it was fabulous. Even though I never got past the third Harry Potter book.

Yeah, I never got past the third. They were addictive for awhile though.

I read them all, and althought hey are somewhat repepative in palces, I understand that her target audience may actually like those constant refernces back to other things.

Jealousy perhaps by the people making comments about her income...??

If they could have it, Im sure they would not say no!
