The players sit in a circle. One is chosen as judge and he keeps
tally. Each player in turn, rises, and names some well-known book.
The first one to call out the name of the author scores a point. The
game continues until the interest ceases or the store of literary
knowledge is exhausted. The player having the most points is the
winner.

This game may be played in another way. Instead of calling out the
author as the book is named, provide each guest with pencil and paper
and announce that as a book is named, each player must write down the
author and the name of some character in that book.

Examples:

"The Taming of the Shrew"--
Wm. Shakespeare--Petruchio.

"Nicholas Nickleby"--
Chas. Dickens--Mr. Squeers.

"Ivanhoe"--
Sir Walter Scott--Rebecca.
