Now don't get all het up, just because I've posted up a picture of possibly the most heart-warming story of 'rags-to-riches' success that the world of publishing has ever known. To hell with the writer's writers, Rowling deserves everything she has received, including the recognition.
I have to say that I have never read any of her books, but I become as excited as a child when a new film adaptation comes out, and I have them all on DVD.
When the first film arrived around Christmas all those years ago (10?), I was transported back to childhood (a better one) like I have never been before, and Christmas took back on some of the old magic, despite the stupid Christians who railed against the movie.
Did you see the documentary on her, when she visited her old flat in Scotland where she wrote the first one? She was in tears, and so was I. She is fucking great, as far as I am concerned.
