Common Thread Quiz

The last two quizzes are here and here and there is still time to participate.  If you are the first one with the right answer in those quizzes or this one you will earn an extra entry in my Birthday Book Giveaway.

What is the common denominator in these book combinations?  Tell me the number and what you think the five books have in common,  Go ahead and take a guess – you could be right!  And #10 is movies.  I got the idea from my 9 in ’09 last Friday.

    This is a great quiz!
    Really challeging.
    I know one without thinking about, for I a Cinema obsessed fan.

    #3 – All the books have been turned into movies

    That is part of it. Now you’ll have to think about the movies (and casts)…

    Oh, I know #6!
    Well, I think I know!
    I didn’t realize it was A House at the end of the world there.
    I read that one and Plays well with others.
    #6 is made with books that are about love between two men.

    #1 all set in the Pittsburgh of the West Coast: San Francisco, a city whose football team suffered a tragic post-season loss in the NFC Championship Game in 1993 that I imagine our blog host remembers.
