Which is Older? Quiz – guessing closed

This week I thought I’d see if you can figure out the order in which these books were published.  Please list them from oldest publication date to newest.

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling!

This round will last til August.  The person with the most points will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Have fun and Good Luck!  Last week’s What Book is That? Quiz here .  Leaderboard and rules here.
