4.5 correct out of 8

Got a half point for #7,
couldn't remember what the smell was.

For some reason the overlap is back on the laptop as well as being on my Smart TV, so I couldn't "LIKE" the original quiz post.

Gotcha. No problem. I'm glad you took the time to reply.
Happy yo do so,
I just wish I could read the 9 and 10 lol.
I need to get the book and read it again.
I first got the paperback series when it was published in serial form, from my local grocery store.
That was fun anticipating and anxiously looking for it every week or month, whatever it was, been quite awhile.
