The Librarian Walked Away With Over 40K In Winnings
Jeopardy winners seem to come from all walks of life. Many of them have managed to leave a long lasting impression on the audience, but few can brag they could match the easy going, easy to love attitude of Margaret Miles.
One of the latest winners of Jeopardy, Margaret works as a librarian at the New Hanover County Public Library in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Nothing out of the ordinary so far, and this is exactly what Margaret does not pretend to be. By the middle of the show, she was already ahead the other competitors. It was then that Alex Trebek decided to ask her was she did for fun.

“Knit – and pet my cats. I’m hopelessly stereotypical,” she said promptly.
It appears as though Margaret is not the only one with a fierce love for cats and knitting.

It may seem hard to believe that a librarian and not some celebrity can hold the headlines on Facebook and Twitter, but this is just what happened.
“I am doing everything in my power to be her when I grow up,” a young man from New York twitted after Jeopardy night.
Success won’t get to Margaret’s head, though, as her cool headed answer proved. What she cared to do, at the end of the show, was to give a friendly shut out to all the other librarians out there.
