3. I am most heartily ashamed.

I flunked the quiz. And I've read the book multiple times and consider it one of my favorites.

4. I did lousy.

 

Only read the book once, but watch the movie all the time. Guess the movie doesn't really follow the book. Oh well.

5. That was fun!

P&P is one of my favorites, although I find as I get older, Persuasion moves up on the list.

6. You scored 3 out of a possible 10

In vain have you struggled. It will not do.
