On Saturday, Gage will randomly choose one quiz participant to win.  To be eligible, you only need to guess, you don’t have to get any right 😉  The guessing is the fun part!

For all of you bookish people stopping by today, see if you can identify these books.  Just tell me the title (and author for extra points) in a comment.  And for one extra entry in today’s giveaway tell me what they all have in common.  Good luck!

  8. The Word Jar says:

    I’ll only guess the ones that haven’t been guessed yet.

    #1 is The Chosen by Chaim Potok
    #11 is Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

    I also knew The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, The Reader by Bernhard Schlink, and The 13th Tale by Diane Setterfield. I’ll also guess that the commonality is having books on the cover, but in all honesty, I looked at softdrink’s paper for that one! Can’t wait to see what the other books are. Thanks for the great quiz!

  9. The Girl from the Ghetto says:

    Ok, this was so hard, but fun, and I spent an hour guessing. My answers:

    1. ?
    2. ?
    3. ?
    4. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
    5. The Writing Circle by Corrinne Demas
    6. ?
    7. The Uncommon Reader: A Novella by Alan Bennett
    8. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
    9. This Book Is Overdue! by Marilyn Johnson
    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    11. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
    12. ?

    I know I have read #1 and #12, but can not think of the titles to save my life.

    I read, reviewed, and own #4 and #11, and have seen the movie version of #8.

    For the extra entry, I think all the books deal with adversity, since they are by different publishers, both men and women, people of different colors, Americans and Brits, and so on.

  10. Stephanie D. says:

    Again, drawing too many maddening blanks. Oh, well.

    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    11. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

    They all refer to books?

  11. Wrighty says:

    Good grief I can’t believe how many of these I don’t know! Ack!! But what a great idea! 🙂
    8. The Poisonwood Bible
    10. The Thirteenth Tale
    11. Bridget Jones Diary
    * They are all about books.

  12. Alyce (@AtHomeWithBooks) says:

    What they have in common – they are all about someone reading a book or books? 🙂
    I think 6. is Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett
    7. The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfeld
    11. Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding

    That’s all I can come up with at this point.

  13. stilettostorytime says:

    Hmmm…well I know a few. Let’s see:
    10.) The Thirteenth Tale
    11.) Bridget Jone’s Diary

    Are they all British in some way? Just a guess. Fun idea! Thanks for the giveaway!

      Thank you for the compliment! I
      cannot stop anyone from stealing my ideas, of course, but I do spend a lot of time to create the quizzes so I’d rather you just joined in, LOL. BUT, if you must, I hope that you’ll use my quizzes as inspiration only and let me know if you make one, since I’d like to play for once 🙂

    Do you have to guess them all? Because I have no idea about all of them but #1, which I think might be the giver, by Lois Lowry

  16. Jo-Jo says:

    Oh, I know just a couple:
    4. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
    8. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
    10. The Thirteenth Tale
    I know I should know a couple more…but I don’t!

    1 is THE CHOSEN by Chaim Potok, 5 is THE WRITING CIRCLE by Corrine Demas, 10 is THE THIRTEENTH TALE by Diane Setterfield, one of my favorite books EVER,a nd 11 is BRIDGET JONES’ DIARY by Helen Fielding, which I also loved! I’m not sure what the others are, though! I like this contest, how fun!

  18. Pop Culture Nerd says:

    Hi Stacy, this is a fun quiz! I know only three for sure: BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY, THE THIRTEENTH TALE, and THE WRITING CIRCLE. No clue on the others. Looking forward to the answers!

  19. Pop Culture Nerd says:

    Oh, wait, I want the extra points! (I’m a nerd when it comes to quizzes.) BJD is by Helen Fielding, TWC is by Corinne Demas, and TTT is by Diane Setterfield. I believe the connection is that all of them have books (or a diary) on the cover.
