Forbes, the American business magazine, released a list of the world’s highest-paid authors: http://www.forbes.com/pictures/emjl45efgei/the-worlds-highest-paid/#5c9638d94fd9.
James Patterson heads the list at $95 million (though of course he has co-writers that help him publish a dozen books a year); Jeff Kinney is second at $19.5 million; and J. K. Rowling comes in third at $19 million. Can you guess who else makes the list? How many of them have you read?
I wish all writers earned these type of figures!
