That was fun. It was tedious to count, so I stopped. I'm guessing I got about 40 correct, which isn't too bad, I think. One or two were impossible and many were too new for me to recognize.

Yeah, I was pretty bad at that one too. Too many poems. And there are some quotes that I do know, but then I miss the author or the title or both.

On the other hand, I can explain how a car motor works. :lol:

Yep. Not a single Fairy Book or Peter Pan. :(
