Tuesday Teaser and Trivia


A few Christmases ago my boyfriend bought me the Book Lovers Edition of Trivial Pursuit and I thought I could virtually play with my fellow book lovers, or at least ask you a weekly literary question. So here goes (if you win then please treat yourself to a slice of pie/cake/pizza/delete where appropriate)...

From the Children's Literature section:
What milestone does a ghost at Hogwarts celebrate in lieu of a birthday?


Quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences from the book you’re reading to tempt others.

"In the days before a loaf of bread cost half a million dollars, he said, one hundred cents made one dollar. He took down an old tin and said as he opened it, 'We used the coins as recently as 2000'."
From the title story of An Elegy for Easterly by Petina Gappah p. 32

YAY, mee! I find it hard to believe that you are the only one :s. When I came across this question I knew I had to use it as a few people are also upset that they don't know the answer to the more cult book questions.

At last a question that I know the answer to, "death day".

Paperback Reader said...

Hee, Geraldine, thanks for playing :).

Death day - I actually knew that one. I like your teaser too, very interesting!

Paperback Reader said...

Yay, Becky!

The book was interesting; a review is forthcoming.
