Better Luck Next Time!
Oh dear! Unfortunately, your results aren't quite as fantastic as we'd hoped. There's no need to panic though, since few things on this planet are as pleasurable as getting stuck into a good book, so we're confident that if you've got some free time on your hands, you'll be acing this quiz the next time you give it a go. In the words of Gustave Flaubert, “Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.”

Impressive! Your outstanding results prove that you're certainly no stranger to the world of literature, and that you probably dedicate a good portion of your life to reading for pleasure.

Martin, "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies...The man who never reads lives only one.”
