I loved the quiz! One of the best posts of the day that I've read. I had to think on some of them, but in the end I figured them out, even 17. That was probably one of the easiest. Happy Valentine's Day!

Great quiz, Elaine! I got just about all of these. :) Didn't know the last one but that was sweet.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Emma and Cindy, I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz, and I think 17 was so sweet. I keep that book separate from the others so it doesn't get sold.

How fun, Elaine. I knew most of them but not all and of course missed the last one.
