I've come across the infographic that hides 15 writers behind pictures, facts from their life, and quotes, suggesting readers to guess them and check if they (readers) are as "bookwormed" as they consider themselves to be.

Well, I've been lucky to guess seven (I know, it could be better). And I just wonder: what would be the results of people who are writers themselves and who read LitReactor, sharing their knowledge and thoughts with us?

Yes, you are right, I challenge you. The infographic has been noticed here - http://bid4papers.com/blog/guess-the-writer/. Don't hesitate to share your result in comments ;-) Let's check who is who. Are you a reader, a bookworm, or a critic?

P.S. Bonus level is for chosen ones only.

I only got 6.

After the first 2, I thought this was going to be really easy. I guess I was wrong. haha

I got 8, and I would've gotten 10, but I couldn't remember who wrote The Little Prince or In a Grove.

I still think the bonus level is a cheat, though I should have known that the Voynich Manuscript predates full-color printing and modern lay-out techniques.

I was able to recognize 1984, and that's only because the book was practically force fed to me by an obscenely narcassistic self-proclaimed 'English teacher' online that wanted me to ignore all other young adult dystopias that wanted to force his interpretation on me. Why that book is considered a literary classic is beyond me. Neuromancer is superior in many ways. Honestly did he mean English teacher, or just a teacher of the English? The difference is important.

I'm not real surprised by the others though. Particularly Jules Verne.
