Quiz Answers

Here are the answers. 23 people had three right, so I will send each a tie breaker question.

2007 marks the first time I have counted the books I read in a single year. I was astounded to find I had read 75 (although, I am reading #76 now, and if I finish by midnight). Check back in a couple of days to see if I made it. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to post a short quiz to start off 2008. This one is all about women. Next time -- something else. I will send a book to the person with the most correct answers by 5:00 PM CST, Monday, January 7th

1. What was Madame DeFarge knitting?
"Things. Interesting things. Shrouds for example."
2. How did Rodolphe send his break up letter to Emma?

3. What job did Lucy Snow have in Belgium?
4. Where did Jane wait for a coach to take her to Thornfield Hall?

5. How did Anna Karennina die?
Threw herself under the wheels of a train.
