How well-read are you?

Only one person will truly know if you are well-read. This quiz is just to pass the time between pages of your more recent literary acquisitions, pleasantly.

Enjoy and if you are unfamiliar with any of the works referenced, do look them up. Some are popular; some are required reading, in the American school system; and some have been "challenged" or banned. They are all, in this author's opinion, worthy of, at the least, a perusal.
