Think you know any of all of them? Leave your guesses in the comments below. I will post the answers in the next day or two.

  1. The middle three:
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    Slaughterhouse Five
    Gone with the Wind

    Right you are, Harold – try the other six! You can do it!

  3. OK, I’ll do the bottom three – Brave New World, 1984, The Sun Also Rises. A Clockwork Orange is top right.

    You’ve got them, James – only two left!
