Book Trivia Game - Round Two

Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black »

The Book Club returns with Round Two of the Book Trivia Game.

Again, each month we will have a different overarching theme. Questions and/or answers will have their origins in that theme.

In September, we have Historical Fiction as our theme. Your challenge is to assign the correct historical time period to various books. Following are a list of books and authors and a list of historical time periods. Not all the time periods will be used; some time periods might have more than one book assigned to it.

Good luck!

Books and Authors
1. Eagle of the 9th by Rosemary Sutcliff
2. Charioteer of Delphi by Caroline Lawrence
3. The Prince of Rags and Patches by Terry Deary
4. Clockwork Angel by Casandra Claire.

Send me your answers in a HOL Forum PM (click this to send PM to me) titled Book Trivia - September.

Write your answers like this:
1 - a
2 - b
Those are not necessarily correct answers.

You will receive 3 Beans per correct match; the requirements of completion of this activity (and which goes towards the possibility of snagging a Book Club award) are completed when you get at least ten of them.

If you wish to earn some additional Beans, I've given a list of characters' names for each of the books. One character per book. If you add in that name after the book and time period, you earn an additional 2 beans.

Names: Alyce, Anne Shirley, Binnie, Flavia, Frank Hollahan, Helen, Lillian Rose, Lord Justin Alastair, Marcus, Mercy Wong, Rab Silsbee, Samuel, Sheftu, Tessa Gray, Will Marsden

Send me your answers by 11:59 pm, September 30th, HOL time, to receive your Beans!

If you have any questions about this, or are having difficulties with categories, send me a HOL Forum PM and ask! :)

Your challenge is to match up the books to the authors. All of the books listed are used as are all of the authors. Some books might have more than one author, though, and an author might have more than one of the listed books to their credit!

Enjoy!
