My A Look Back post won’t be up until tomorrow but I’m posting my favorite quiz from March 2010 today. It’s a fun one and I get to participate again, yea!
Ever play the board game Scattergories? This week’s game is a little like that. At the beginning of the year I joined the Colorful Reading Challenge and I need to read 9 books with 9 different colors in the titles. And I haven’t read any. So, the game is for you to list up to 10 titles (& authors is possible, but not required) with 10 different colors in the titles.
Like The Color Purple by Alice Walker could be one, but you couldn’t give me another purple title. Also, if your title has 2 colors you can earn double points.
Where does Scattergories come in? The title only counts if you are the only one who lists it. If there are repeats no one gets points.
So, you may come up with 10 titles and get 0 points or give me one title and get 10 points. Tricky, huh? I’m looking forward to seeing what titles you come up with. Feel free to browse your own blogs or bestseller lists for ideas. You have until Thursday night to submit your answers.
Leave your guesses in a comment. Good luck!
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.
