Congratulations, nebraska and stroch!

I don't know about the two of you--and the other contestants--but there are some of the clues that are still puzzling me.

I am extremely impressed by the fact that people 'got' so many of the clues. I guess I'll try again next year, maybe making it a point to read a number of the books I haven't. I know the entire process got me interested in several books: I, Fatty and Happy Days in particular. Also the Fante book (Ask the Dust) looked good too. It was much fun to participate in and my bows to those who could do this.

Congrats to Nebraska and fansmom, and thanks to ONBC for the opportunity to be in another great contest. I can't wait to see the answer list -- I know some of mine were wrong, but I was going around in circles and couldn't puzzle it out anymore. It was fun, but torture.

Congratulations nebraska, fansmom and stroch on winning such a difficult contest. You deserve the praise and well done to Liz and DITHOT for organising the contest, you obviously made them think hard for the prize. :lol:

Must have been just a good guess. :bigwink:

I also received an email Amazon.com gift. Now, to decide on the perfect purchase! It may take me a little while to decide exactly what I want. Thank you so very much, ladies! :bouquet:
