J.K. Rowling might finally step out of Harry Potter's shadow. The scribe, whose estimated net worth was $1 billion in 2011 (she's much richer than Queen Elizabeth), is set to release her first adult novel, "The Casual Vacancy," on Thursday. Preorders for the book, which according to reports contains the word "vagina" (gasp), already have it ranked at No. 3 on the Amazon best-seller list. But are we really ready to move on from the Potter world? Here's a few lingering questions for Rowling, five years after Harry finally vanquished Voldemort. And if that was a spoiler, you've got to be kidding us.
