About This Quiz

Do you love anagrams? Are you an avid reader? We've combined both of these fun pursuits into one great quiz. We challenge you to get them all right.

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. For instance, we can rearrange the letters of the word "angel" to form the word "glean." That's an anagram.

A novel is a relatively long work of narrative fiction. Some great novels include "Sense and Sensibility," "To Kill a Mockingbird," and "The Grapes of Wrath." 

What could be more fun than to combine novels and anagrams?!
