Honorary Mention goes to "Twelfth Night, or What You Will", Shakespeare's joke on subtitles, as it isn't a book. I found a lot of obscure books that I left out, but if there are any suggestions I'd be glad to consider them.

(as HH) threw me off.

Well, the actual book doesn't have a subtitle, but the version that Humbert Humbert writes WITHIN the book definitely does.

Nice. I was actually thinking of making a quiz like this - good selection.
Nov 10th, 2009 at 18:26 GMT
Great quiz idea. I never knew Tess of d'Urbervilles had a subtitle, and a rather smug one at that.

Interesting quiz, I got the dog one because of research I had done for one of my quizzes. Sporcle does teach things
Dec 1st, 2009 at 01:38 GMT
Really interesting. Masters in English, read most of them, who'd have guessed I'd fail miserably. Good job.

You should add Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life".

Good call! The problem is that it's a tad long, to the point that it drastically messes up the format; however, it's such a good example that I used it as, well, the example.

For JRRT, I tried every variation of the (rest of the) LOTR series titles, then finally remembered the correct book. Great quiz. Challenging, but fun.
Feb 18th, 2010 at 12:38 GMT
Wonderful idea. I love quizzes that reward attentive reading.

Cool idea for a quiz. Props for including the Children's Crusade, great book.
May 4th, 2010 at 23:30 GMT
I'm glad to see this quiz got published.

I'd like to see Tess d'Aubervilles as an accepted answer. Doesn't seem right not to have it.
May 5th, 2010 at 06:52 GMT
The author initial column ended up being more helpful than the actual subtitle clues. :D
May 5th, 2010 at 15:04 GMT
Somehow I totally missed the author initials column. Not sure it would have helped..
May 5th, 2010 at 17:36 GMT
Great idea for a quiz!
May 5th, 2010 at 17:37 GMT
...and I see I already commented on this before it was published. Literature quizzes for the win! :D
May 5th, 2010 at 18:44 GMT
JRRT gave it away, but there and back again sealed the deal

Dude, nice surprise.
May 8th, 2010 at 10:30 GMT
Enjoyable. I was disappointed that my own favourite ("...To Say Nothing of the Dog") wasn't there, but I have learned some new ones.
May 23rd, 2010 at 22:03 GMT
I would recommend creating an alias for "One Hundred and One Dalmations" to the actual title. "The" vs. "One" seems a bit picky.
