If Angela Merkel is on why not the president of Iceland?? Read the entire list of 100 and found a few they could have eliminated and Jo should really have been higher on the list but she made it! Congrats!!!

With of her wealth and fame she could’ve just retired from life and just decided to relax in seclusion; but instead she continues to fulfill us with Pottermore. She obviously doesn’t need the money. I also want to thank her husband and children for sharing JK with us. It means a lot to us. Definitely congratulations to JK Rowling. You certainly deserve that and more for your kindness and concern for those less fortunate.

sorry corr’n: With all of her wealth and fame she could’ve just retired from life and just decided to relax in seclusion; but instead she continues to fulfill us with Pottermore. She obviously doesn’t need the money. I also want to thank her husband and children for sharing JK with us. It means a lot to us. Definitely congratulations to JK Rowling.
