New Quiz Results

What else would I give you on Thanksgiving Day, when I'm too busy focusing on my second favorite thing (yes, FOOD! next to BOOKS!) to pay much attention to anything else, but the latest results from some fascinating quiz I allowed myself to get sucked into taking (no. QUIZZES! are not my third-favorite thing. I promise). This was the Presidents of American Literature, which I discovered via Biblio Addict.

Here's how I faired:

The presidents of American literature

As a new president-elect prepares to assemble his team for government, there are many important questions to ask. Chief among them, of course, is how much do you know about White House residents in literature?

You scored 9 out of a possible 14

The audacity of hope. The disappointment of experience


Not too bad for someone who guessed on about half of them.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! This year, I'm thankful ten times over that we will soon have a Democrat back at the helm (but you already knew that, didn't you?).

I got 10 out of 14 and guessed on a lot of them. I got pretty lucky in my guesses I suppose. Have a great Thanksgiving!

I scored 9 out of 14. The 5 I got wrong were all guesses. For 3 of them I almost guessed the correct answer, but it was still a random choice.

Ouch, I only got 8 right.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

The shame of it! Here's my result: "No you can't. You make W look like Umberto Eco". Ouch. Thanks for the quiz though. My wild guesses were way off.

Happy Thanksgiving, Emily! I stand no chance at the quiz, but I'll join in on the Thanksgiving for Obama!

I couldn't find the test. But I don't expect I'd score very well.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day. Your sweet potato casserole recipe was a hit with my family!

Well, glad to see I'm not the only one who isn't exactly hip to American presidential fiction. And, Cam, so glad to hear your family enjoyed my casserole.
