Quiz of the Month – August 2018

Over two million votes have been cast for the most popular novel in America in PBS’s The Great American Read, and the 40 books with the most votes have been named.  That doesn’t mean that the other 60 books on the list of 100 are out of the running, it just means that they’re behind at the moment.  Voting won’t close until  midnight Pacific Time on October 18, 2018, so there’s still time to move your favorite book to the top of the list.  You can vote for one or more books once a day, every day.

Below are the titles of the 40 books that are in the lead.  Can you name their authors?
