That seems hardly surprising to me, considering how, with the Harry Potter books, she managed to get so many people to read! I myself am included in that category. I had not enjoyed reading, until Harry Potter. Actually, it was the movie that caught my attention before I decided to give reading the books a go.
Also, she's hinted, or maybe confirmed, that she will be writing an 8th Potter book. However she said it will not be about Harry anymore, she'll be writing from a different character's perspective. I'm pretty interested in having a prequel; I'd like to know the history of the characters and how events occurred that made Harry an orphan.
As for my life, it's pretty much the same. Nothing's changed in my lifestyle, although I may be feeling less homesick now. And I've started to work on my assignments due after the break, so really this holiday is not like a holiday at all. Typical.
And finally, this is a song by Kings of Convenience, titled Homesick.
