Percy Jackson and the Olympians?
Dec 8, 2013
Yeah, I know. I'm too old for that stuff.
Jun 2, 2014
What is it? Never heard of it.
Jul 3, 2014
Just bought the set for my grandson at Christmas. Set in present day Percy is the 12 y/o son of a human woman and the Greek god Poseidon. He has superpowers and special objects, but is also dyslexic and has ADHD. He performs quests to fight various monsters and save the earth.

Great quiz. I love the variety. But.......Percy Jackson and 50 Shades of Grey? Really?
Dec 8, 2013
Ohhhh noo...not a children's book! How dare that be included! You're all way too sophisticated to acknowledge fantasy written for children! Quoted from Wikipedia: "The Lightning Thief was the winner of the School Library Journal Best Book of 2005 as well one of the books in the Chicago Public Library Best of the Best Books List, 2005. It was also in the VOYA Top Shelf Fiction List and was the winner of the Red House Children's Book Award Winner (UK), 2006; Askews Torchlight Award (UK), 2006; and the Mark Twain Award (Missouri Association of School Librarians), 2008. It was an American Library Association Notable Book, 2006 and a New York Times Notable Book (2005). It received the Young Reader's Choice Award in 2008 and the Rebecca Caudill Young Reader's Book Award in 2009. Scholastic Parent & Child magazine also included the novel within its 100 "Greatest Books for Kids."

Well said.
Dec 9, 2013
Okay. We get it. Calm down.
Feb 5, 2014
Okay, people. Listen. You say Percy Jackson=Children's books. Things for kids. But... I happen to know an 18-year-old and two people in their 30s and 40s who enjoy it. Okay? Lamiastella, just because it is officially considered a children's book does not mean that it is only for little kids. Burntfrost, you must be pretty old. It's like ages 10 to, what, 60? Sheesh, people, you're so uptight.

Anubis101 is spot on about 50 shades. Now I taste bile and tears are streaming down my face.
Oct 1, 2014
Couldn't remember how many shades... 1000 ,100, 101?
Jul 21, 2015
GRRRRRRRR!!!!! The only one I didn't know was Cristian Grey but I missed Wife of Bath and Captain Nemo because of the horrible advertisement that kept covering the entire screen. I had to keep closing it and I would start to type 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' but before I could finish the title the ad would cover the screen again!! I guess I shouldn't complain because I enjoy the quizzes for free but GRRRRRR!!! Thank you for letting me vent.
Dec 9, 2013
Weird. This does not happen for me. What was the ad for? Maybe I can block it.
Dec 10, 2013
Oriental Trading. It's one of those 'hover' ads. I just need to be super careful when I move my mouse cursor away after selecting a quiz that I put it somewhere benign on the screen. Once you've activated one of those ads it just keeps coming on the screen over and over -- even if you have clicked the X to close it.
Dec 11, 2013
Okay, I blocked that particular ad.
Dec 12, 2013
I wish you could block all ads that moved, too, but I don't know if that's possible. You can scroll down to hide the top banner but not the side, and they're distracting when you're trying to remember a word that's on the tip of your tongue. It's like hmmm, who was that general that crossed the Alps, but oh look, there's a dancing berry off there to the right; who knew berries could move of their own accor--oh crap I'm out of time.
Oct 5, 2014
sheesh use adblocker plus ;)
Jan 28, 2015
Dammit, I couldn't remember how many leagues under the sea Captain Nemo was!
Feb 7, 2014
Same! I didn't get it because I didn't count how many 0s I put in, and then assumed I had the wrong answer
Apr 19, 2014
Yeah Wife of Bath!!
Feb 11, 2014
Seven seconds left. Phew.
Sep 3, 2014
missed nemo because I kept typing 50 thousand instead of 20 thousand, silly me. Great quiz though, loved it (apart from fifty shades of grey, hardly consider that a book to tell the truth)
Dec 20, 2014
Gotta stop thinking Matilda is spelled Mathilda. :P
Feb 11, 2015
50 Shades of Grey was a terrible book which I deleted from my tablet, and I had no desire to read the sequels. Not only was it ridiculous and dangerous, but with phrases such as, "Keep your hair on," and storing dishes in the "cupboards" instead of the cabinets, the author was obviously British trying to write a book set in America. A little editing might have gone a long way to at least make it readable if the plot had not been so absurd. Had Grey not been a billionaire, whats-her-name would never have let him touch her. I just don't understand all the hype.
Mar 6, 2015
I am no fan of 50 Shades, but I've lived in America all my life and I often say cupboards instead of cabinets, so I wouldn't say that would make it obvious. I don't use the phrase, "Keep your hair on," but the British aren't the only ones that say cupboards.
Mar 15, 2015
I have only ever found jelly cupboards in the US. I guess your comment is erroneous.
May 10, 2015
Good quiz. I'd like to see more book-related quizzes. I know, I should write one!
Mar 30, 2015
I liked the quiz. Thanks! But technically, The Canterbury Tales and the Illiad are long poems, and Hamlet is a play. These three aren't books--novels--like the rest.
Jul 13, 2015
Thank Goodness no Harry Potter clues.
Jul 21, 2015
I have no problem with kid's books being on here. Peter Pan and Wizard of Oz are great examples. My problem with books like 50 Shades of Grey and Percy Jackson is that they haven't stood the test of time yet. That would fine if the entire quiz was an equal mix of classic AND contemporary literature, but it's clearly not.
Jul 21, 2015
Curious about it accepting "Sherlock" for "Sherlock Holmes" but not "Oliver" for "Oliver Twist" - seeing as "Sherlock" on its own is usually used to refer to the TV series, not the books, so surely "Oliver", which usually refers to the musical, should be accepted for "Oliver Twist"? Apologies if that was convoluted.
Jul 21, 2015
Okay, Oliver will work now.
