I know how much some brave souls enjoy doing the quirky quiz so I have managed to come up with a fairly short and simple effort, which will hopefully keep you amused for a few minutes.
It is only three weeks since my operation, when by all accounts my blood pressure dropped precipitously and the lack of blood took out a few million brain cells so naturally this quiz is easier than some previous tests.
The prize as usual will be a book chosen from some classic crime fiction.

1] How are a Greek province, a trader in ship and boat supplies, and a misspelt muscular pump linked to different forms of a chemical substance?

2] Who lost a name, the art of pulling together, and a burial place on an Atlantic crossing?

3] How are transport to a musical festival, biblical daughters, a lengthy conundrum, and a path through trees all linked to the Jew of Malta?

I told you they were easy. Good Luck.
Please send answers to by midnight Friday 16 April BST.

Sheesh. These are hard. I'm new to your blog but I assume it's the hangout of Rhodes scholars and genuine genuises?

I'll give these a shot...but wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and entering the challenge. It'll be fun!

Thanks Amy, you are very welcome.
These questions are much easier when you know the answers. ;O)
I am constantly astonished by how clever the people are who get them correct. I must get organized with six books off my TBR pile for your challenge.
