Weekly Geeks 13

This week’s theme is a sort of meme. (Hey, I rhymed!) Your basic challenge is to post author photos.
Using the meme-like list below, post photos of authors in response. Please feel free to skip any you don’t like. You’re also free (encouraged!) to add your own, but if you do that, please be sure to indicate which are yours, so that people can credit you if they use yours.
But don’t put words/names with your photos. Ask your readers to guess your answers! If you have a book to give away, you may want to offer a prize, maybe draw a name from those readers who guess correctly.
1. Photos of your favorite author(s).

2. Photo(s) of the author(s) of the book(s) you’re currently reading.

3. Photo(s) of any author(s) you’ve met in person (even very briefly).

4. A youtube of (an) author(s) you’ve heard speak.

5. Any photo(s) you may have of yourself with an author.

6. A photo of the author of the book you’ve most recently finished.

7. Photos of the hottest author(s)!

When you’ve finished your post, please come back and sign Mr Linky so other Weekly Geeks can find you to visit and guess your answers.

Okay. The favourite authors one is the easiest:

Authors I'm currently reading:

The only author I've ever met in person is this one: (living at the bottom of the world means we don't get a lot of book signings or chances to meet writers).

And there aren't any YouTube videos of him that I can find. I also don't have any photos of myself with him .... or any author.

The book I most recently finished was written by:

Hottest author .... no idea!!!

Fun! :)
