Because everybody loves a challenge: Name 36 classic novels and mystery-thrillers from the first sentence alone.
From memory, people. No googling.
My score: 10/36.
I scored a 30%. 12/36…and I’m still kicking myself for missing #17. A great book from one of my favorite authors…
Cool quiz, Meg. Thanks for sharing.
Err. Make that 33.3%. (more coffee, please.)
Wow. I should know more of these. Definitely nine – so, 25%. There are a few others that sound familiar (Howard Roark!), but that’s as far as I can get without Google.
Five. And guess which one I DIDN’T get? Yeah, that’s right —
Grapes of Poke-Me-In-The-Eyes Wrath.
Sigh. Only 5 or 6 I’m afraid. The obvious ones. And not even all the obvious ones.
Seven right and five half-right (author or title, but not both). Don’t ask how many I’ve actually read. This type of quiz always makes me feel illiterate.
As I said on FB, I got 12, but that was with a lot of guessing. I’m not as well read as I thought…..
16! A whole lot better than I thought, although When I think about the things I should have been doing while rereading this list and trying to up my score…
Impressive. And thinking about books should always be your highest priority. Well done.

INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE:
Buy the book.
I write thrillers, including the UNSUB series, the Jo Beckett novels, and the Evan Delaney series. You can find me in Austin, Texas. Read here about the writing life and the lies that pay my bills.
