Some memes you just cannot resist. I saw this one on Bernadette´s and Crimefictionreader´s blogs yesterday and today on Maxine´s. First I thought it would be difficult, but in fact it was far too easy. So easy that I could not help adding two or three answers to several of them. (Or perhaps I just read too much?)
