That's fab, Susan -- yes, all those people who said reading romance novels was a waste of time -- phooey to them! *g*

Whoops, Anne, you're so right -- sorry everyone. Typo alert. I'll go in and fix it now. Thanks for spotting it.

Thanks, Robin — #4 seems to be one a lot of people missed.

Pam, don't feel dumb -- this quiz was meant to be a bit tough, because some of my others were a bit too easy. The whole purpose of the exercise is to have fun, and come away knowing a few things you didn't otherwise know. Thanks for joining in.

It's a very exclusive and fabulous club, Amy *g* Thanks for having a go.

Glad you enjoyed it, Shannon. And yes it was tougher than some of the ones in the past — though I think my Charles Dickens quiz was probably the toughest. Still, I've always found that a quiz is a fun way of picking up new facts. All the best for the festive season.

Debbe, even some of the hardest core regency readers didn't make a perfect score — some of the questions were hard, and the multiple choices tricky. You did very well.

There's a couple of illustrations on bullet pudding on the web, Make Kay, as well as a few descriptions, so you should find it interesting. It's an odd and messy-sounding game.

Mel, you know I'm a devious and tricky question-setter, so don't beat yourself up. I really enjoy coming up with plausible-sounding alternatives. All the best for the festive season and thanks for all you do for romance and romance writers.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Sue. Yes, that one about the royals mislead a lot of people. Thanks for joining in.

Carol, thats an excellent score. I think 4, 6 and 7 are the trickiest questions in the quiz. If I hadn't just done a stack of research on Regency Christmas for a short novella I'm writing at the moment, I probably would have missed those too. Thanks for joining in the fun.

Hi Claire — fabulous score, only you didn't get 14 -- there are only 12 questions. *g* But thanks for joining in.

Well done, Cindy. That seems to be a fairly typical score for the well-read regency reader. Thanks for joining in.

Beverley I'd always assumed the first royal tree was Victoria and Albert, but no. And some of the regency Christmas games were new to me as well — Jo Beverley lists some on her site that I hadn't heard of, though she doesn't list bullet pudding. But it sounded the most fun for a devious multiple choice question.

Thank you, Cathy. Bullet pudding has stumped a lot of people. Wishing you the all the best for Christmas. Books are always the perfect gift as far as I'm concerned, and I really have to rack my brains when I come across someone I need to buy a gift for and they don't read. What do they doooo? *g*

Vicki thanks so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Bullet pudding was one of the trickier questions, it seems, but just think how you can impress people with it from now on. *g* Merry Christmas to you and your family, and thanks for being a wenchly reader. One of the things we wenches love most about this blog is the wenchly readership. We so often have good conversations in the comment stream.

Hi Lillian, you did very well on the quizzes, but not fourteen right I'm afraid. There are only twelve questions -- for the 12 days of Christmas. So general historical knowledge, excellent, arithmetic, not so much . *g*
