Default Book quiz

Here's a book quiz that I reccomend you have a look at.

If you get question 6 wrong, you need a spanking.

I got 7/10, getting 1, 4, and 9 wrong. Which is pretty good, as except for Earthsea, Pern, Discworld, Arrakis, and Middle Earth, I was pretty much just making wild guesses.

8 of 10...some guesses and some where I just eliminated what I was sure was wrong. I've only read the Pern series, but I knew of Discworld, Earthsea and MiddleEarth.

I'm more into SF than Fantasy, so that's why...:;shrug::

I'm with Cheryl on this one!~ I had to guess at half of them, and still got 7/10!

EarthSea rings a bell - what is that from?

The only ones I knew for sure were Middle Earth, Pern, Arrakis, and Discworld.

Legolas if you watch the SciFi channel they are doing a miniseries on Earthsea. That might be why it rings a bell.

I'm not willing to guess... I'd rather leave a question blank than take an uneducated guess and rely on luck.

Has anyone tried any of the other quizzes on the site, and, if so, which ones?

me, too.... except I kept going til I achieved 100%... I had 9 out 10 the second time around but it took all four times before I guessed number 9 correct. :laugh: Some of those authors are forever in my mind even though I have not read their books.

I got 7/10 too didn't get 1, 7 or 8 and I only knew 3 for sure - seems we all seem to be doing well with our guesses - maybe we know the names of sci-fi/fantasy authors on a subconcsious level

I got 6/10 right! And I guessed on all but two of them too! The only ones I knew were Anne McCaffrey for Pern (I hope ) and J.R.R. Tolkien for Middle Earth. I guessed on all the others.

Ones I got wrong: 1, 3, 4, 7

Oh dear; 4/10 right. I suppose I need to get myself back to the bookshelf

I only knew the answer to 2, 5 and 6- the only reason I got #8 correct was because I thought it looked Welsh and Carmody looked as likely as any other.

I had 9/10 because a few I knew, a few I guessed right and the others I did Google searchs. The only one I was unable to get was number nine. I was surprised by some of the ones I knew.

Hiya Radar!

I still haven't taken this test, but guess I'd get a score like 3-4. That's only because, as stated earlier, I refuse to guess. It defeats the purpose of the quiz.

But then that may just be me.
