J.K. Rowling Book Tour

I know, Harry Potter is all over the news, but at risk of oversaturation, I have to write that I was charmed by this bit of news. J.K. Rowling is one of those authors who doesn't have to tour. Her books are going to sell without her doing any publicity whatsoever.

The fact that she is choosing to go on tour--and that she is coming to the U.S. to do so (for the first time in seven years)--really does show a love for her audience and a commitment to the children that she writes for. I also think it was brilliant of Scholastic to not sell tickets but to choose them from schools. It's a great way to go that will allow some people access who probably would not have been able to had the tickets been for sale. It almost hints of the Golden Ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
