The E-book Harry Potters

Holy Hogwarts! Can you imagine the gold mine waiting for J.K. Rowling when she signs the dotted line and the publishers converts all the Harry Potter novels into e-books?


Already the richest woman in Britain, Rowling may become the richest person in the world. Beating out Bill Gates and all the Caliphs and oil sheiks of the Middle East combined. And I'm all for it.

If you know the story behind her struggles to create Harry Potter you can't help but applaude. As writers we all struggle. Many of us never get the recognition--even a smidgin of recognition--we all think we should have. Not complaining, mind you. Just stating a fact. And when a writer like Rowling suddenly materializes into the limelight . . . well . . . you either stand up and applaude. Or you burn bright and hot in jealousy.

I'm for applauding.
