Relax, Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling now has plenty of paper.

The author, a resident of Edinburgh, Scotland, who writes in longhand, is busy writing the seventh and final Potter book. She had complained last month that she was having a hard time finding writing paper. Her readers apparently sympathized. "Be careful what you wish for, it might come true," she wrote in a message posted earlier this week on her Web site. "Since complaining that I had difficulty finding anything to write on after running out of paper while working in town, I have been deluged with paper. Some of you sent single sheets, others entire pads, one enterprising paper merchants sent a large stack of notebooks embossed boldly with J K ROWLING, which I might not use in public, but which are very lovely all the same.

"Others took a different approach, telling me exactly where you can buy writing paper in Edinburgh; some even enclosed maps. Anyway, I've now got enough paper to write several book sevens, so no excuse there."
