JK Rowling earns £3 million a week

The 'Harry Potter' author's incredible earnings - equivalent to £5 a second - are from the 375 million sales of the seven books in the popular children's series, a percentage of revenue from the movie adaptations and spin-off merchandise, including toys and video games, according to financial bible Forbes.

JK - real first name Joanne - is believed to be worth around £560 million and is expected to see her earnings soar even further, with three more 'Harry Potter' movies scheduled for release.

Forbes spokesperson Lacey Rose said: ""It was wizardry that transformed JK Rowling from a destitute single mother on welfare into a super-rich success.

"On the big screen, her 'Potter' franchise has already generated £2.1 billion at the worldwide box office - and she still has three flicks to go."

After completing the 'Harry Potter' series, the author - who earned more than the other writers in the top 10 put together - devotes most of her time to charity work, including the Children's High Level Group, which she founded.

Last month, she donated £1 million to the Labour Party, the ruling political party of the UK.

me too .. cuz that's the only book that i actually read..

i think that the movie was nice.. it's not really that bad.. the special effects are good.. but the main stars of the movie are a bit too old for the role..
