The Edge - F&LILV - from HST's quote about the edge (I know this one threw a lot of folks)


That was the point! We are definitely twisted. :mwahaha: :capnjack:

Next year we will hire a consulting firm to make up the questions.

Congrats to the winners! :disco: Good job ladies! And good job DITHOT and Liz! You guys came up with a great puzzle to figure out. Gave my old brain a good workout! :cool:

On the contrary, I think you two should hire yourselves out as a book club consulting firm. :cool:

Great game, Liz and DITHOT!!! :cool:

Congratulations fansmom, nebraska and KYWoman!!!! :disco: :disco: :disco:

I didn't get a chance to send in my guesses...(and that's what they would have been!!)

But I was in trouble right away with the first one. I was sure that "The Edge" was "A Long Way Down"!!!!! :-O

The edge … there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. HST

bluebird, don't feel bad, a lot of people thought The Edge was ALWD!

Well, I got "The Edge" and several others between my two entires LOL!
But I wasn't even close ..."on Sweet Plant – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - sweets factory"

I kept thinking of 'plant' as in the green stuff that grows outside!

Great fun! :bounce:

Did I tell you I failed this quiz when my hometown book club gave it? Different books, but same idea. I thought my clues were easier than hers, though. :lol:

I groaned when a process of elimination led me to Sweet Plant being Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Until then, I too had been thinking of green things. :blush:

Don't you dare! You and DITHOT rock! After all, if it was too easy the contest wouldn't be any fun.

I remember how many hours I spent last year going back through books hunting for answers to a series of REALLY hard questions! I had my stack of books all in one area, poised and ready for the 2nd anniversary quiz. I was glad to see this year's questions had a little different slant.

Speaking of my stack of books, I must go retrieve the Libertine..... :cloud9:
