JK Rowling up for TIME Person of the Year
Once again, JK Rowling is up for consideration as TIME's Person of the Year. TIME is looking for input from their visitors via a poll, where you can rank ten candidates from least favorite to most favorite. They also have pros and cons for rating Jo:
Pro: Finished a seven-book epic that will be read by children (and lots of adults) for generations to come. Slowly creeping up on Agatha Christie as the most read author not named Shakespeare.
Con: Seventh book wasn't her best, and hard to argue she was the most important person of 2007.
Get voting and let TIME know who you think is most important! Thanks to Jonathan for the tip.
