Comic #2380

1 Ophelia: Hey Will, thanks for recommending that "Harry Potter" book. My nephew loved it. He told his friends and all the kids at his school are buying it now.
2 Shakespeare: Hmm. Let me check the latest book sales report online.
3 Shakespeare: "Unknown author J. K. Rowling has hit the best-seller list thanks to a mysterious wave of popularity in schools across the state."
4 Shakespeare: Wow. That's a series of fortunate events.
4 Ophelia: No need to be snickety.

J. K. Rowling pronounces her last name as "rolling", rather than rhyming with "howling".

That seems simple enough.

Oops, apparently it's not.

2022-11-26 Rerun commentary: Now that I think about it, I'm not sure that there would have been any such book sales figures available online at that time.

It's amazing how far we've come in just a few years. I talk with 10-12 year old kids a lot, and they just can't even imagine a world where you can't look up anything you want online.
