congrats dan. And @Fresca ROAR Jo got knocked off the list this year…apparently her lack of a book this year didn’t make her influential enough.

and I wasn’t the one that said her lack of a book this year was what made her un-influential. That was all forbes. Just wanted to make that clear. I realized that after my last post [:

yay!!! Go DAN!!!! He’s definitely a great influence. There’s not too many young celebrities out there who are as succesful as he is and are still level-headed and down to earth.

Yay, Dan! And what a complete nutter that reporter was. “It remains to be seen if he’ll continue to be a box office draw…” Um…. DUH! Of course he will. He’s awesome. He’s Dan!

Congratulations Dan! It’s somehow strange to see DanRad on this list and not JKR but I understand that it’s not the money earned. It’s more the influence and the bankability of a media personality. Dan has grown beyond Harry Potter and is earning a name just for himself.
Meyer’s position also is an example. although her books have not earned half of what the HP books earned, Twilight is the current flavor of the month. I guess we have to accept that now … that HP has a serious rival in the vampire books.

Guess That Book

He was not going to die crouching here like a child playing hide-and-seek; he was not going to die kneeling at Voldemort's feet... he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possib
