1. Horton hears a who?
4. Fluke
5. Raoul Sabatini

I have no clue about the others.

Cschu said...

Ok... I answered before reading the others....

I should have known the Maltese Falcon! I have been listening to a really good audio version of it. And, yes, Rafael Sabatini!

Collectively, you've gotten the right answers. Alison and Jenny have the distinction of getting #3 right; it's Sylvia Browne. Harriet has the distinction of being the only person to get #6 right: Dennis Rodman. #4 is a book I love a lot, Fluke, and #5 is an author Ron loves a lot, Rafael Sabatini. #1 is Horton Hears a Who! and #2 is indeed The Maltese Falcon.

Thanks for playing!

So glad that this game is yours...
