Daily Quiz anyone?
If you are stuck at home and bored like me.
How about exercising the old grey cells?

I have for a number of years run quiz nights and couple of times a year. I was due to do one tomorrow which is now cancelled So I have a bank of questions sitting in my computer's hard drive. They are quite eclectic in their nature.

I am thinking I could put up a set of questions for which you write down your answers. After 30mins or so I will put up the answers. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. before I post the right answers.

You mark your own answers and post your score.

I will then record the scores and at the end of the "lockdown" we will see who is WHO's brainbox supreme. Obiviously no looking up the answers (you only cheat yourselves)

Word of warning these won't be easy questions as they have been devised for teams of six. Forming teams on here might be too problematic. So I'll try to pick out the easier questions.

Any interest?

20 as well, would never have got above 16 but you gave the names of the authors which helped.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Well Zico you believed me yesterday but this might stretch your credulity to the limit it's the full 20 for me.

As you said it is not films although I guess most if not all of these have been made into film (But of course I wouldn't know that!)

Lord of the Flies

5. Douglas Adams - Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

6. Robert Louis Stevenson - I will begin the story of my adventures with a certain morning early in the month of June, the year of grace 1751, when I took the key for the last time out of the door of my father’s house.
Kidnapped

7. Mario Puzo - Amerigo Bonasera sat in New York Criminal Court Number 3 and waited for justice; vengeance on the men who had so cruelly hurt his daughter.
The Godfather

8. George Eliot - Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.
Middlemarch

9. Jane Austen - It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Just realised I didn't do yesterday's quiz on politics. Which I just did without looking at the answers.

Would you believe I scored a full house?

I thought not but I did honest!

Not worried about the points just wanted to brag
