J.K. Rowling barnstorms America

Rowling_lIt’s nice to know that J.K. Rowling (pictured) will be going on a modest reading tour of the United States later this year, after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is published. Because, let’s face it, her esoteric little novel is going to need all the publicity help it can get.

    You’re telling me she’s going to be in my town (Los Angeles) and I can’t go because Scholastic will only be giving tickets to kids??? I mean, I know they’re our future, blah, blah, blah but they’re not really children’s books. What about the rest of us who will be heartbroken because the series is over. Although, if she kills Harry, I’m not sure I could face her, anyway. (And, yes, I actually have a life, but cannot wait for July 21.)

    I think if I had a kazbillion dollars, I would hire a makeup artist who knew how to mix foundation. And a hairstylist who knew how to use conditioner.
    Oh, and then I’d install a bocce ball court in my office at work. For the makeup artist and the hairstylist to play in.
    Can’t wait for the book – I’m reading all of the previous ones so I’m all ready and stuff!

    I saw her read in NYC months ago, and she was great. I’ll never forget it. Can’t wait for July 21st, but I will be sad to see it all end (especially if Harry dies).

    Everyone’s mad becuz she is only giving the readings to little kids lol. Who as far as I know arent even the target audience at this point. By the last book the target audience is defiantely 17+ lol. But hey its her novel and her publishing company SCHOLASTIC which is like only for kids under 11 lol. So adults we shall just discuss it over and over on message boards and blogs the world over. While the little ones get to ask her questions like “why did jenny dye her hair in the lastbook” and “harry was so hott when he jumped off the cliff”.

    Maureen…right! It’s not like these kids are BUYING the books anyway. What are they working 40hour weeks chuckin’ lemonade to thirsty CEOs to save up for the books? NO! It’s us, the nice ADULTS, who are buying them the books. We need love too! LOL!

    that’s so true. i bet the majority of her readers are over the age of 16 or 17. mostly because a lot of the readers have just grown up with the books and kept reading, but also the books definitley are not for little kids anymore.
