Let's all take a moment to imagine the Great J.K. putting Harry Potter aside to play a few levels of Minecraft.

J.K. Rowling kicked off Monday morning (or evening, if you're coming from Britain) with a reply spree to her Twitter followers as she procrastinated on a "tricky chapter." She engaged one follower with some insight into her favorite ways to put off work:

"And, of course, Minecraft." Of course, though. She followed up with this clarifying statement:

In more recent news from Robert Galbraith, J.K. revealed via Twitter that his crime novel, "The Cuckoo's Calling," will be turned into a BBC thriller series.

According to The Daily Mail, "The Director of BBC Television, Danny Cohen, confirmed the news in an official statement.
'It's a wonderful coup for BBC Television to be bringing J.K. Rowling's latest books to the screen. With the rich character of Cormoran Strike at their heart, these dramas will be event television across the world.'
The second book in the Cormoran Strike series, 2014's The Silkworm, will also be a part of the BBC programme."

Who wants to bet, as we speak, J.K. Rowling is playing Minecraft while procrastinating this next book?
