Megan topped the list with 3 correct!  Thanks for playing 🙂

It’s Women’s History Month, so see if you know these women authors.
Here’s how to play…Identify the author and leave a comment with the # and the name and I’ll cross it off the list. No Googling, that’s cheating and no fun!

    I’m sad to say I only know 2 of these (at least I think I know them). My guess for #3 is Toni Morrison and for #10 it’s J. K. Rowling.

    You’re right! Some of them I probably made harder than necessary 🙂

  2. Megan says:

    No. 2 is definitely Jane Austen! 🙂 And No. 6 is Jhumpa Lahiri.

    And the next two are guesses: No. 9 is Edith Wharton, and No. 8 Paolo Coehlo?

    Fun! 🙂

    Very good! 3 out of 4. Paolo Coelho is a good guess, but would probably not like being an answer to a quiz titled What Woman Am I? 🙂

    OK. Because I can’t leave anything unfinished. I’m going to guess Emily Dickenson (spelling?) for #4. I don’t even know if she’s American but she’s the only female poet to come to mind.

    This looks like so much fun! Do you mind if I steal the idea (with different authors and clues) for my blog? I’ll give you link love of course. 🙂

    Sure, go ahead. I do a different quiz every Monday. Feel free to join me 🙂

    Sorry I’m new to your blog, even though I shouldn’t be. Since your name wasn’t linked to your blog when you commented on mine, I didn’t realise that you had one! Now you’re in my reader. 🙂

    I don’t know why my name wasn’t linked, but I’m glad you found me anyway.
