What fun! Thankyou Andy, you've just improved a shite day significantly. Thanks also to Selected Best Nodes for giving me a great vintage node. (This is missingthepoint wasting time instead of working... caffeine deprivation)
My answers, before looking or reading the rest of the thread...
1. The Count of Monte Cristo (Dumas)
2. To Kill a Mockingbird (?)
3. The Power of One (Courtenay) ... Should it be 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/6?
4. For Whom the Bell Tolls (Hemingway?)
5. (The?) Twelfth Night (?)
6. Return of the King (Tolkien)
7. From Here to Eternity (?)
8. A Farewell to Arms (Hemingway)
9. The Postman Always Rings Twice (?) ... I half suspect I'm way off base here
10. The Hunt for Red October (Clancy) ... Great literature?!?
