This was fun, thanks for hosting!

Surprised no one picked Gosford Park for Q9

Not to be pedantic, as it doesn't change my score, but the book I chose, "Garden of Beasts", a novel by Jeffery Deaver is not Erik Larsen's "In the Garden of Beasts."

Almost did, but thought "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" might be less popular. Moved from a potential singleton into a double-hit. Oh, well.

Ouch -- "Joe" instead of "Jack" on the final question dropped me from 4th to 16th instantly. I have GOT to quit stubbing my toe like that.

Fun quiz! thanks for your time and effort.

Thank you. I appreciate you noticing my fourpeat. I thought I had quite a coup with my creative alternative to Dizzy Gillespie -- I had been browsing jazz CDS before doing the TD -- but my more conventional answer of Fletcher H also would have been a singleton.

Ha! On the podium for me!

I took a chance on question 9 that there might be a book called Rosa Parks, and it paid off.

Don't wear out your hand patting yourself on the back, there.

Muchas gracias for a fun TD and all of your time and effort that went into it, Peachbox!

I don't care where I finish as long as it warms my heart to see so many know their jazz to various degrees.
