Dec. 2 Puzzling Post: The Answers

Evidently this puzzle turned out to be more difficult than I had intended, but thanks for playing along anyway.  Here are the answers:

1.  Little Women (Louisa May Alcott) 
2.  The Boy in the Suitcase (Lene Kaaberbol)  I'll admit this was the toughest for three reasons: a) it is such a new book (published Nov. 2011) but I chose it because it's making the rounds on the book blogs  b) when searching for a picture of a "suit" I intentionally chose a suit on George Clooney to make it more difficult and  c) those not familiar with farm equipment may not recognize the tractor as a Case - but in my defense it is printed on the side of the tractor in very, very small letters.  
3.  The Time Traveler's Wife (Audrey Niffenegger) 
4.  Middlemarch (George Eliot)
5.  Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) - Alice Cooper + Holiday Inn + Wonder bread + land
6.  A Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickins) 
7.  No Country For Old Men (Cormac McCarthy)
8.  The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Stieg Larsson)
9.  The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (David Wroblewski) - finger pointing at one story of the building + Edgar Allan Poe + a saw + tell (as in tell a secret)
10.  The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini)

Now that you see how my diabolical mind works, we'll revisit this type of puzzle someday.


  1. okay, now this makes a bit more sense, LOL! If you do it again, I think I may do better (or maybe not, LOL :)


  2. Diabolical indeed! Well, at least I was right with the ones I thought I had worked out. The others make sense now. Thanks for "spelling" some of them out. I'm looking forward to the next bunch.
