Rowling Enthusiasm Runs High Before She Even Writes

Acclaimed author J.K. Rowling, who penned the widly popular Harry Potter series, has received great enthusiasm about her announcement that she will write a new book for an adult audience.

She could have a best-seller before she even writes a word.

In research conducted by Netbase Solutions, Inc., published in the Wall Street Journal (February 25-26, 2012, p. C4), reactions to the announcement are as follows:

Excited – 58%

Memories of Potter - 34%

Jokes – 6%

Skepticism – 2%

The reactions were consolidated from 4,800 posts on Twitter and Facebook, between February 23-24.

I did not read any of the Harry Potter books, but my daughter did, and also saw all the movies.

I think I will read this one, whatever it is, and whenever it comes out, just out of curiosity.

What about you?  Let’s talk about it really soon.
