J.K Rowling Launches U.S. Book Tour

Author J.K. Rowling launched her U.S. book tour in Los Angeles today, reading a chapter from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and signing books for roughly 1,600 schoolchildren lucky enough to attend the event.

The British author said that after 10 years of writing on a deadline, she now felt as if she was on vacation; Rowling also has no clue as to what her next project will be, telling her audience that Harry Potter would be a hard act to follow: "I want to fall in love with someone the way I fell in love with Harry. I never think about a particular genre. It is all about the story and the characters, but it has to be something I adore."

Similar readings and book signings will be held in New Orleans, New York and Toronto.
