Signed books galore and a giveaway!

Last week, I stood in the birthday party room at The Scholastic Store and realized that a large chunk of my 9-12 section was spread across the countertop and several tables.

No, this was not the ultimate bibliophile birthday party. Gordon Korman and Judy Blundell had stopped into the store to sign stock! Needless to say, they had a lot of books to sign.

My shelves aren't just bursting with signed books from Gordon and Judy, though. I have been lucky enough to have hosted 9 different authors this month for events or stock signings. I thought it would be fun to share a few of them here:

As you may have noticed, there are a few that are...well, less than legible. I thought it might be fun to start off a Monday morning with a contest!

GIVEAWAY! Simply decipher the name of the author who signed below and put your guess in the comments section. Three winners will be randomly selected to win a signed book by one of the authors featured in the post! (You get to pick!) Contest is open to all legal U.S. residents 18 and over; contest closes at 5pm ET on Friday, October 25, 2013. Read the complete legal rules here.

Ready? Here's the clue:

Happy guessing!
