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.
