The definitive collection of book memes & quizzes

Actually, we're a little light on rules.

Post a BOOK meme or quiz, with or without your answers (or answer in comments), or take one away to post in your own journal. Begin one (they all have to start somewhere!), share a recent find, or revisit an old favourite. All we ask is that you cut for length and nsfw questions/answers. It's nice to give credit if you can remember where you found it.

Think of this community as your dealer in book meme crack. We're here to enable you.
