    OK- I scored 7 out of 10 😦 But really, the last question was difficult if you haven’t read that book… You said we had to be honest, but you didn’t say anything about not whining…Now I’ll slink away, ashamed…

    Okay, I got 7 out of 10.. The last question was really tough for those of us who haven’t read the novel. Almost put Cain and Abel as the answer, but didn’t. Oh well.Your loving wife 🙂

    In collaboration we got 7/10; would have been higher if I’d gone with him on some answers. ;)EVERYONE should read East of Eden; it’s probably Steinbeck’s best novel.–ae

    I’m glad to see I’m in such good company…and it makes me wonder if we are a biblically-illiterate group, who is more literate?Elsa is *not*just a good guesser…she is who I ask all my literary questions of, and she and Ben together are just about unbeatable…:-)And LOL Amy!And Adri- I enjoy Steinbeck’s writing style, if not his worldview, but haven’t read that, and will have to give it a try!What fun, Randy 🙂

    Sorry guys… I got 9 of 10, but I was always a good multiple-choice test taker. And I have read East of Eden. Faulkner beats Steinbeck, though, in my feeble opinion.

    Bill and Elsa, no need to apologize for doing better than all the rest of us. We know that you are BOTH brilliant. We would expect no less. And Amy (no longer) in NM, the curve is in place, for sure. And Bill, I should say that I know that you took the test while stoked with brain food. Unfair edge. I do agree with you about Faulkner. I love Faulkner.And to those of you wondering, one comment is signed ‘your loving wife’. She indeed is a loving wife, but she is not known for her spelling skill. Last I checked, her name was Barb, not Bab… 🙂
