Ok, here goes...

1. Pulp Fiction
2. Prince Bernhard
3. Queen Juliana
4. Ajax (“Football Club Ajax”)
5. Germany & Belgium
6. The Anne Frank House
7. The leading hypothesis as to its origin is that it is from the Dutch janke, meaning a diminutive of the name Jan. The second leading hypothesis is that it is from Jan Kaas, literally John Cheese, a nickname for the Dutch that parallels the British John Bull. Usage of Jan Kaas has been dated in Europe to the 1650s. The term could have been applied to Dutch pirates in the Caribbean and later shifted to New Englanders.

11. Jan de Bont

Here goes, another valiant effort!
1) Dr. Phil McGraw (cannot stand him!)
2) Angels and Demons (the first Langdon book, EXCELLENT series!)
3) Atlas Shrugged
4) Anna Karenina (damn Oprah and her book club!)
5) Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Katherine Woods
6) Without a Doubt by Marcia Clarke
7) Talbot Mundy (I have NO idea, never watched the show), or David Lynch
8) Otto Frank, Anne's Father
9) Three books- The Bourne Identity, Supremacy, and Ultimatum
10) Eight survived- Noah and his family

I'm thinking all but 7 are right, with one other uncertainty.

Actually I like the idea of Oprah's bookclub and there are some excellent books in it, that I would have never have known about if it wasn't for her show. Like Wally Lamb's "I know this much is true", Joyce Carol Oates "We were the Mulvaney's", Paradise by Toni Morisson etc. Although I think Paradise and Anna Karenina is not something with which you can persuade people who hardly ever read, to start reading again. Both books, though excellent books, I would never pick up again to read once more, too much work.
