Opening Line Quiz

Hey, have some fun, take a literary quiz, matching the opening lines of famous novels to the correct title and author. The quiz is here. I got 8 of 13 correct, which they say is "Not Bad," but looks to me like a "D," if you ask me. More embarassing, 2 of the incorrect answers were from books I have read and one was from one of my "Top 20" books.

Please come back after the quiz and tell us your score in the comments section!

I got 9 out of 13. I must admit, that I may have been helped by your comments because I know which books are on your Top 20. I think I got the last question in particular correct because of your list.

That was fun though! Very fun!

I got 11 out of 12 on the Harry Potter quiz. I'm not sure if that would redeem my performance on the opening line quiz though!

I took the Potter quiz and aced it with a 12 out of 12. Stay tuned for Sunday's post with a review of the latest movie!

I missed the question regarding Hagrid and the tavern. And to think, with all the time I spend in bars...

I got 11 out of 13 on the literary quiz. All those years of reading novels have finally paid off. But there's no money in it...

9 out of 13 after a bit of guessing, using the "process of elimination" technique taught by the Princeton Review.

Oh! dear! I got 8 out of 13 also. Now you shoul dreally be worried. If I got 8 out of 13, shouldn't you have gotten 14? Your wife is very concerned about the state of mind you were in when you took the test.
