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!
