Anne quiz update: We have a tie!

First_day_cover In last week's Anne of Green Gables quiz, both Rebecca Slominsky and Kristin Duckworth got all the answers, including the extra credit answers, correct. Well done, ladies!

Later today we'll hold a runoff to determine a first-place winner and a second-place winner. As Rebecca informed me, my questions in the first round weren't hard enough. So now we're going to remedy that. This will be a no-holds-barred, the-sky's-the-limit kind of runoff (though it will be shorter than the first round). So start hitting those books, you two, and come back this afternoon for your final round.

Thanks to all those who participated in the quiz! Click on "Continue reading" to see the answers.

1. Anne was born in Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia.

2. She wished her first name were Cordelia.

3. Gilbert called Anne "Carrots."

4. Her least favorite subject was geometry.

5. She started teaching at 16 (or more precisely, as Rebecca had it, 16 and a half).

6. She almost got engaged to Royal Gardner.

7. Anne had no bridesmaid.

8. Anne and Gilbert had seven children.

9. Their sons fought in World War I.

10. The heroine of the last novel is Anne and Gilbert's daughter Rilla.

EXTRA CREDIT

1. Anne relaxed with Dickens's The Pickwick Papers.

2. Anne's favorite roses were the pink ones; Gilbert's were the white.
