Rowling Makes £5 Every Second

Blink once and Harry Potter author JK Rowling will be £5 richer than you.
Blink twice, three times or even go to sleep and wake up 8 hours later and the woman will have earned at least a cool 10k or so.

Yes, JK Rowling is officially the world's highest-earning author according to US magazine Forbes.

On the big screen, the Harry Potter franchise has made Rowling £2.5 billion - take into account that she still has three more epic movies to come in the series!

The books themselves have sold more than 400 million copies and been translated into 67 languages.

I knew Rowling was rich when she gave money to the Labour government recently but damn, this woman is earning money in her sleep. That must really help her dream good dreams at night, musn't it?
