  16. Sadly the only one I recognize is The Thirteenth Tale! I’m guessing the common thread is there are books/open books on the covers.

    • 65 + 10 bonus for 75 points!! And yes, it is Bridget Jones’s Diary :)

      Comment by stacybuckeye | June 10, 2012 | Reply

  21. I’ll only guess the ones that haven’t been guessed yet.

    #1 is The Chosen by Chaim Potok
    #11 is Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

    I also knew The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, The Reader by Bernhard Schlink, and The 13th Tale by Diane Setterfield. I’ll also guess that the commonality is having books on the cover, but in all honesty, I looked at softdrink’s paper for that one! Can’t wait to see what the other books are. Thanks for the great quiz!

  22. Ok, this was so hard, but fun, and I spent an hour guessing. My answers:

    1. ?
    2. ?
    3. ?
    4. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
    5. The Writing Circle by Corrinne Demas
    6. ?
    7. The Uncommon Reader: A Novella by Alan Bennett
    8. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
    9. This Book Is Overdue! by Marilyn Johnson
    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    11. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
    12. ?

    I know I have read #1 and #12, but can not think of the titles to save my life.

    I read, reviewed, and own #4 and #11, and have seen the movie version of #8.

    For the extra entry, I think all the books deal with adversity, since they are by different publishers, both men and women, people of different colors, Americans and Brits, and so on.

  23. Again, drawing too many maddening blanks. Oh, well.

    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

    Comment by Wrighty | June 6, 2012 | Reply

  25. What they have in common – they are all about someone reading a book or books? :)
    I think 6. is Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett
    7. The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
    10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfeld
    11. Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding

  36. Oh, wait, I want the extra points! (I’m a nerd when it comes to quizzes.) BJD is by Helen Fielding, TWC is by Corinne Demas, and TTT is by Diane Setterfield. I believe the connection is that all of them have books (or a diary) on the cover.
