  1. I'm afraid I wouldn't do well on the quiz. :) But thanks for the ebook info.

  2. I wouldn't do well either but I did love his book, Redburn. Have not read Moby Dick though.

  3. Gals, I haven't read any Melville and I got a 50% on the quiz! you'd be surprised what you know just from general info!

  4. That's one quiz that scares me to death... just like Moby Dick!
