Publication Quiz- By guest blogger ‘Nise – guessing closed

The tables have turned and Nise, always at the top of the Leaderboard, has created a quiz just for you (and me).  All you need to do is match the titles with the year they were first published.  Easy right?  If you aren’t already familiar with Nise you are missing out and should visit her blog immediately!

Please play along with us.  For everyone who plays an extra $ goes to the winner and the everyone is entered for a special prize.  Just leave a comment with your guesses and don’t google the answers.

Rules & Leaderboard here.  Last week’s Suicide Quiz here.

If you are interested in creating a quiz (and earning 100 points for the week) let me know and I’ll get you on the calendar.

Match these best -selling books to their publishing dates.  Bonus points for knowing the author. (if you can’t see the books the titles are in the comments)

1813 1847 1908 1929 1936 1957 1960 1977 1986 1991 1993 2005

1. 1960 Harper Lee

Because of a typo, 1992 was not one of the choices.  Guesses of 1991 or 1993 will count 🙂

6 points for correct year, 1 point author, 1.4 points for both.

      I’m guessing from your guesses that you did not see the year choices Nise provided! I am so impressed that you came so close without them. I threw you a few points for the ones that were the correct decade. 14 points.
