From this week’s Weekly Geek challenge:
Though I’m really not very good at it, I love trivia. Put books and trivia together and you’ve got a perfect match. So I thought it would be a fun Weekly Geek activity for us to come up with some book trivia questions to ask each other.
So take a moment, don’t stress about it all, and write down five to ten questions that pop into your mind. You could center all your questions around a particular theme or genre, maybe something in which you specialize. Or ask questions about one certain book. Or teach us about your favorite author through your questions.
You could do really easy ones that you know we’ll all get or really hard ones that will challenge even the best of us.
I have put up five first lines from books written by award or honor winning authors. I picked well known books but have first lines that are not obvious (okay, one is obvious, I included it because it is a great first line).
Post your answers in the comment section, I will let you know if you are right. Have fun!
