Well, of all the authors on the list, Jo is certainly the one who tops my list. I did get a chuckle our of number 100 – YOU, author, blogger, tweeter, etc. and the category is “other”. Very cute.

Congrats to J.K. Rowling, for being recognized for all her amazing contributions to our world of reading.

About time! Geez, it’s only been more than TEN YEARS of bestsellers! If 500 million copies in 67 different languages can’t get you on the list, what will?
