  1. I GOT TWO! But, um, the last one sort of evaded my mental powers. Well, no. I just didn’t understand it.
    This was FUN!

  2. I got all three, off the top of my head. Then I thought I was wrong to I did it again. Percy Jackson also works for number two. I got stumped on number three, then I realized I got it right the first time.

  3. I got the first one and the last one. I kinda spaced out in the middle though….

    But the last one wasn’t that hard. How did people miss that???

  4. I got the first two! the answers to #3 could vary drastically…. Like line three where it could have been L, T, or A.
    Figment should do more of these!

  5. awesome…I love book riddles, and my kids are getting into them as well. “Study men, not historians.” by Harry S Truman.
