    Ha, that quiz! I hadn’t read many of these titles, but obviously as a bibliophile I knew of so many. I got 33/35, missed two on classics because I don’t pretend to be a personal fan of them (just me!)

    …and as I tell my husband all the time when we watch the news, “Jeff Bezos controls the world” and then he says, “wait, who?”.

    I do like the convenience of Amazon Prime and have been using the site almost since its inception when it wasn’t well-known. But…. wow, with his power and money, who knows what he will do next? He owns The Washington Post now, by the way. Let’s hope he doesn’t forget to concentrate on his original item, books! They have a bricks and mortar Amazon shop in San Diego, within driving distance of me, but I don’t have a burning desire to see it, except perhaps for curiosity’s sake.

      I’m starting to think Amazon wants to take over the world LOL! Re the quiz, I got all of them right, not because I’ve read them all but because I used to teach, and before that I worked in a bookstore, so either I knew enough about a title to identify it, or I could rule out the other three choices!
