Scrambled Johns – guessing closed

Okay, I’ve been negligent in posting quizzes these past few weeks and I have no excuse except that I have been very busy (and sick so that doesn’t help).  We’ll see if I can get another week or two in and then crown a winner for this round.

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

Leave your guesses as a comment. Good luck!!

    I can’t believe I’ve only read two of these. Suffer the Children years and years ago. I think I was a preteen. And I HATED Confederacy of Dunces. I own almost all of the rest.

    I almost missed this quiz. Somehow, I’m getting your posts as a weekly digest now. Not sure how that happened. Going to my settings to switch it back to daily. 🙂

    • 120 perfect points! I loved ACOD! The black humor was so shocking when I first read it that I couldn’t help but laugh. Not sure how I’d feel about it now, but I’ve been wanting to read it again.

      • Just goes to show that not everybody likes the same books. Authors need to remember that. 😉

        Sorry you’re still not feeling 100%. Hope you get to feeling your old self soon. *hugs*
