Even though there are no Cliff's Notes for "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the boy wizard's adventures are better known to English readers than Shakespeare's "Hamlet," according to a British poll reported by the BBC.While 66 percent of those polled were able to recite the plot of J.K. Rowling 's "Sorcerer's Stone" (called "Philosopher's Stone" in the British edition), only 28 percent were able to describe the great Elizabethan drama -- or remember that the usually vacillating Hamlet had planned to kill his uncle, the polls reveals.In other literary matters, 51 percent of the readers polled by Britain's Amazon.com were not aware that Mr. Darcy is a character in Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice," while 28 percent though he was an invention of author Helen Fielding for her novel "Bridget Jones's Diary."Nearly half of the people polled also admitted that one of the major barriers to a well-rounded cultural education was simply knowing where to start]]>

If anyone gets a chance to see the A&E miniseries of Pride and Prejudice with Mr. Firth - see it! I absolutely loved it

Rowling Highest Earning Author Everimdb.comJK Rowling is the highest earning author ever, according to the new Sunday Times Pay List - which claims she made a massive $200 million in the past year. The Scottish Harry Potter creator - who was the highest woman earner, and the fifth highest overall, in the respected British list - eclipses billion-selling writers such as Agatha Christie as the highest earning author in history. The Pay List's author Philip Beresford says, "She is a money-making machine. The temptation to keep writing after she has finished the last of her seven planned Potter adventures must be irresistible. She could be the first billionaire author in history."You guys think she'll start another series after Potter??]]>

Finished Book Number Four last night.

Wow! You read 2, 3 and 4 in a month!  They're good, aren't they? I'm listening to them again to and from work, just started book 4 a couple days ago. I think I've almost got them memorized. ]]>
