Welcome to A Victorian Celebration Contest!  This Contest is open ONLY to registered participants of “A Victorian Celebration,” hosted by A Literary Odyssey.  

The contest is simple!  Starting today (Wednesday, June 27th) and until 10pm on Wednesday, July 3rd, participants in the celebration can Take This Quiz on Victorian Literature.

After the deadline, I will review the answers and the person with the highest score will receive a prize!  

If there is a tie for the highest score, I will randomly select a winner from that group.  The winner will be e-mailed and will have 48-hours to respond, before a new winner is selected.

Simple Rules:

1. Be a participant in Allie’s “A Victorian Celebration”

2. Take the Quiz (You can use any available resources to help you find the answers).

The Prize:

Any Victorian novel of your choice (to be shipped from the Book Depository) up to $15 USD!

If more than 25 valid (i.e. from registered participants) entries come in, I will add a second winner!

Good Luck, Challengers!

    • I’m glad! And you’re welcome!
      (And you were featured – how ’bout that!?) 🙂


  1. That was so much fun!! I love that you featured bloggers!! Thanks for hosting this, Adam. 😀


  2. Thanks for the fun quiz! And who knew there was someone responsible for that awful opening line? 🙂


    • I know, right?! That’s what I’m here for… random, useless factoids a-plenty! Although, who knows, maybe someone will read this, appear on Jeopardy, and win something nice. haha


  3. Great idea and I had fun with the quiz. Thanks for the mention – at least I know I’ll get one question right. 🙂
    And thanks for a great giveaway.


  4. P.S. Hope you are enjoying Germinal, I read it last year for Paris in July and thought it was a masterpiece. One of the best books I’ve ever read!

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
