First Lines of Famous Books Quiz + Giveaway of Under Duress

Have you read a lot?

Want to win a signed copy of my Love Inspired Suspense novel, Under Duress (Love Inspired Suspense)?

I have a few copies left, and I would love to mail one out to the commenter who can answer the most of the following questions correctly.

When the ladies at my church got together in February to celebrate the book, they took this quiz. It was so much fun! 

The following are the first lines of well-known books. All you need to do is leave a comment with the titles, and the one with the most right wins a book. Knowing the authors as well will only add to your chances of winning! I'll announce the winner next week.

  1. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
  2. Once upon a time, sixty years ago, a little girl lived in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, in a little gray house made of logs. 
  3. Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that.
  4. "Where's Papa going with that axe?" said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast. 
  5. Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. This story is about something that happened to them when they were sent away from London during the war because of the air-raids.
  6. “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.
  7. Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies' eardrops and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in its earlier course through those woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde's Hollow it was a quiet, well-conducted little stream, for not even a brook could run past Mrs. Rachel Lynde's door without due regard for decency and decorum; it probably was conscious that Mrs. Rachel was sitting at her window, keeping a sharp eye on everything that passed, from brooks and children up, and that if she noticed anything odd or out of place she would never rest until she had ferreted out the whys and wherefores thereof.
  8. "Tom!" No answer. "Tom!" No answer. "What's gone with that boy, I wonder? You Tom!" No answer.
  9. Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay out scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 
  10. As I walk’d through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep; and as I slept, I dreamed a Dream. I dreamed, and behold I saw a Man cloathed with Rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a Book in his hand, and a great Burden upon his back.
