Mystery Book Quiz No. 1

Updated on January 30, 2012

Mystery Book Quiz

I am using two formats here -Quiz and Poll.

The Poll format will be similar to the Mystery Guest Games I wrote earlier. However nobody is speaking to you this time.

Instead you are reading a small ad about 3 books but only 1 of the ads is fully accurate.The other 2 ads will be partly correct about their book but they will be flawed.

You must pick out the book which is correctly described with no errors.

In the Quiz format, you are simply asked a question and must give the correct response from the mutliple choices you have.

The photos on this page are here to enhance this lens and may or may not be associated with the correct answer.
