This quiz is a follow-up to Books and Authors [Part 1]. You should have quite a large collection of books that you have already read, books that in many cases are quite classic. Whenever you read a book, besides knowing the name of the book, it really is as important to know who the author of the book is.

Knowing the author can give you a lot of insight into the storyline. It can also help you make future reading choices, especially when you find an author or two that amaze you.

So as you did in Part 1, below you will find a list of ten different, yet very popular, books. Your challenge is to see if you can match the book with the right author. Don’t be worried, this will most likely be easier than you can imagine - that is if you have been observant and “comprehend” what you have read. Now let’s begin the challenge! Who wrote…?
