    How This Works

    Each quiz (book or author) will have it's own topic, members can then submit a single question to a quiz topic. When a quiz reaches a round number of questions (10 or 20) I will add it to the site and everyone can take it. Once it is added you may still submit questions, they can be added later.

    We only need quizzes for books/authors on this site. If there is not an existing thread for a book/author you may create it.

    Any questions, please post in this thread.

    Are we supposed to be posting the question and the answer (or possible options) for it?

    No.

    When I make a quiz I'll delete them off the thread, and the traffic the site gets is far greater than the people actually reading the forums, thousands of people will take them having never visited the forums.

    I think you can go to Literature forum, search the author, and you'll find a link "submit a quiz:

    I'm afraid I haven't put the question corectly. I'm talking not about a quiz, but about that the list with authors from the site and in the forum does not have some important names such as Margaret Mitchell. And I'm wondering how to put this name,for exemple, for being more threads concerning different autors. Can you please help me?

    Ah ok, I see. Well, if the author's name is not listed already, you can always suggest them in the Book Requests area linked below.

    http://www.online-literature.com/for...splay.php?f=11

    However, Margaret Mitchell (1900-1949) author of Gone with the Wind (1936) will have her works under copyright protection, as they were published after 1923. see copyright info:

    http://www.online-literature.com/for...ad.php?t=17769

    But you could start a discussion topic about her in the General Literature area:
