24 Hour Read-A-Thon Mini-Challenge

Welcome to my mini-challenge! You guys are doing an amazing job! I'm sure you're all tired, so take a break and watch this little video. Your challenge: to name as many of these authors as you can. Your prize: a selection of books from the Friends of the Library, including The Blind Assassin, Rise and Shine, The Coffee Trader, The Dante Club, and We Are All Welcome Here. Feel free to pause the video if you need more time to stare at a particular author. Oh, and one is a freebie, because I didn't realize his name was at the bottom of his picture until after I made the video. You're welcome. :) Send your guesses (with the subject line "Mini-Challenge") to xjessideex [at] gmail [dot] com. This challenge is open from 7 am to 9 am EST, and [UPDATED] Cheerleaders can play, too. Good luck!

@ darcie - It didn't take too long; I think finding good pictures of authors that weren't too obscure was the hardest part. We'll see how recognizable they are...

@ care - Thanks for your guesses! :)

Question: is it open just to readers or too cheerleaders too?
