Best Paid Authors Quiz – guessing closed

Last August I ran this quiz about the highest paid authors and now the new numbers are in. These rankings are based on their total estimated income (books, movies…) from May 2030-April 2011.  I’m giving you 15 authors and you need to rank the top 13 in order.  The extra 2 are just ones I added to keep it interesting.  Only 3 authors have the same spot as last year and if you get those three correct you’ll get  a few extra points (so go ahead and look at last year’s quiz).  Each correct answer is worth 7.5 points.

I hope everyone will give this one a try.  It’s more fun the more people who play 🙂  And you only need to play once to win a prize!

No cheating.  No googling or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system :)    Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome   It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
