Quiz for Banned Book Week

In honor of Banned Book Week, the Guardian has a quiz. I scored a mediocre 7 out of 12, and I got the following commentary: "Rather ignorant, I’m afraid. You’re clearly reading in slavish obedience to the censors. Are you going to be voting for Sarah Palin?" Nice touch from a UK publication.

Sad days...I've been reading about banned books all week but scored a measly 5 out of 12. Guess I have some homework to do. And no, I won't be voting for Sarah Palin.

I got a 5 out of 12 as well. I have to admit that I did a lot of guessing. :(

That was an interesting quiz, and it taught me! I did just as badly as the rest of your: 4/12. And I resent the comparison to Palin supporters. Out of more than a hundred banned books, did the quiz maker have to pick nine I've never read? And obscure (to me) facts about the others?

Don't feel bad, Gwen. I only got 7/12. That was tough.

I got 6 right. And I work in a library.

I also got a 7 out of 12 (but sadly missed the easy / more obvious ones)...but yes, I am voting for McCain / Palin
