Though J.K. Rowling said to Katie Couric this July that she is no such thing, magazine Forbes has again place Jo Rowling on its list of the World’s Richest People, as a billionaire (which is more likely to be true in dollars than pounds). The short article says that 60 million Harry Potter books sold worldwide last year, and that a source says that book seven will be out in 2007, which we remind everyone to take with a big grain of salt. It’s probably likely, but Jo has not yet said anything about the book except that she expects to write it this year and that it’s already getting longer than she planned.
