April Showers Scrambled Quiz – guessing closed

April Showers bring May…Easy right?  Not if you’re in Ohio and many other places in the middle of the US, where the showers have continued.  But let’s think positive thoughts and hope for the best.  See if you can unscramble books that all have one thing in common.  8 points for the title and 2 for the author.  5 easy peasy bonus points if you tell me what they all have in common.  You have until Friday noon to submit your answers in the comments.

No cheating.  No Googling, researching, or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system    Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.  Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome   It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
