I do, I never met any American, Canadian or English person that doesn't know her...That's something like 400 milion people! Surely there's a few persons in those countries that don't know her but still :D

All I want to know is if anyone thinks like me...Or am I weird? Sad

LOL. As far as I know, there are still some people out there who doesn't know her. For example, some of my relatives used to asked me who J.K Rowling is (oh yeah, I was so addicted to HP series and I was like so obssessed with it) and why I kept talking about her when it comes to fantasy authors that is really famous around the world so, not all people knows her. But still, even my cousins who are like 4 and up knows who Rowling is. ^^;


P.S. You are not weird Matt. Or if you are, then I guess I am too. Lmao

Undoubtedly the most popular, but a long long way from being the best...

That's what I thought too...Usually, the best authors are well known...But not popular. Think about Mark Twain...Well, maybe it would have been better if he was still alive...Bad example, hmmm..Naomi Novik, she's popular and one of the best authors I've seen but not as much as Rowling. I'd really recommend anyone to read the Temeraire series.

I think she probably is the most popular and if she isnt then she is extrmely close to it. I dont think i know anyone that doesnt know who she is.

Not sure on Popular, but before I picked the first book up off the shelf, I had not heard of JK Rowling before.

Most people only know of Rowling through the HP series. Most people don't read her books before the HP series. I didn't, never heard of her before I got into HP.

hmmmm I think she could be the most popular now but JRR Tolkien is probably just as famous considering he really was the first person to make a success of Fantasy Writing and that he did such a good job at it.

Yeah, but we're talking most popular. It's a close call between the two, in my opinion. I mean, if we look at the here and now, the present, Rowling is probably more popular in today's market over Tolkein. But if you look at mass popularity at one point, Tolkein might have Rowling beat.

I gotta agree with that, Tolkien was the greatest author of his time...I guess he "passed on the torch" to Rowling..

Yeah, that makes more sense than I was thinking. I mean, that's more or less what seems to have happened.
