In other giveaway news, the only soul brave enough to tackle my Website Scavenger Hunt on May 16 was Luthien! So she too has won a copy of A Season of Courtship. Yeah!

Now, as promised, the answers to the Book to Movie Adaptations Quiz posted on May 30 for Armchair BEA Day#5–

A – 9  O Brother, Where Art Thou by the Coen Brothers is based on Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey.

E – 4  Field of Dreams came from W.P. Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe.

G – 2  Blade Runner was the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.
H – 6  John W. Campbell’s Who Goes There? set in Antarctica became The Thing.
I – 10 Insomnia inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club.

Those who gave answers to the quiz got all of them correct.

Thanks a lot, Sharon. I’m surprised that no one else participate in the hunt as it is quite easy to find the answers if you know where to look. I downloaded the Kindle version of Darcy & Elizabeth: A Season of Courtship and am waiting for the free time to dive in and read.


Hi Sharon. Just wanted to say a huge thanks for the Amazon gift voucher. Your email has arrived and it’s been redeemed. Just trying to decide now which of your books to buy with it!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
