Common Denominator Quiz

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!  Since these are tougher feel free to do any investigating you need to, like using google.  And if you figure a few out today and a few tomorrow, that’s okay, just leave separate comments.  You have until Friday morning.  Have fun 🙂

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.
