Spring Break Fever Quiz – guessing closed

I’m guessing I’m not the only one looking out my window at a yard full of snow.  In spring.  (sigh)  It’s Spring Break time around here and most of the kids I know head south and don’t stop till they hit a beach in Florida.  So, let’s head to Florida.

I hope that you’ll try your hand at my (mostly) bookish quizzes every week, but it’s okay if you just want to play when the quiz interests you.  If you play you are eligible for a prize at the end of the round (sometime in June).  For all of the details, click here.  Submit your answers in the comment section – I will stop by and hide them throughout the week but try not to copy off anyone else :)   You have til Sunday to guess.

No Googling:)
