Top earning authors

Back in October, Forbes magazine published an article entitled "The World's Best Paid Authors", based on calculations of author's earnings between June 2007 and 2008. Don't feel guilty about borrowing one of their titles from the library instead of buying it - these guys are doing okay.


  1. and have any of them had to count on Oprah to increase their sales. Except for Follett I think not!!!!!

  2. Though none on the list is a surprise, it makes you wonder where other Best-selling (and popular authors) such as Nora Roberts, Robert Ludlum, Mary Higgins Clark, etc. would fall on such a list in comparison.

    I would be interested to see a version of the list for this year with the massive popularity of such authors as Stephanie Meyer...
