Tom Clancy Quiz – guessing closed

Tom Clancy was a heavyweight in the bestseller department. I read and loved The Hunt for Red October (loved it so much more than the movie) and I’m not sure why I haven’t read another of his books yet.  Let’s see how well you know Tom.

I hope that you’ll try your hand at my (mostly) bookish quizzes every week, but it’s okay if you just want to play when the quiz interests you. If you play you are eligible for a prize at the end of the round. For all of the details, click here. Submit your answers in the comment section – I will stop by and hide them throughout the week but try not to copy off anyone else :)  You have til Sunday to guess.

No need to know all the answers, one guess and you’ll be eligible for a prize. No Googling!

  4. When Hunt for The Red October came out my neighbor/best friend and I took apart the book when she got about 1/2 way so I could begin reading it! It was my first book club. :o). We read when our babies were taking a nap! We read the next 5 books together as well before she moved to another state.
