Have You Just Completed Moby-Dick?
Finishing Moby-Dick for the first time is kind of a big deal. If you have just done so, congratulations! I wish I could give you a hug, or at least shake your hand, but on the Internet these things are not possible.
What I can do is give you a certificate of completion to print out. It's not much, but it's something.
Below is a short quiz. It should be easy for anyone who has read the book. Follow the instructions if you want to get the certificate.
Good luck, and thanks for visiting this site.

Select all your answers,
then click on the "Process Questions" button at the bottom of the page.
If you get one or more questions wrong, the program will tell you your score. It won't tell you which questions you got wrong.
If you get all 11 questions right, three things will happen:
- This page will turn blue-green;
- A password will appear at the bottom of the page; and
- Your computer will be instructed to open a password-protected PDF.
Find the password. Ideally, you'll be able to type it right into an open window. Depending on how your computer is set up, though, you may have to choose a PDF viewer (such as Adobe Reader) first. Once you get the right program running and type in the password, the certificate should display. Then, just fill in your own name and print. (If there's a problem, email me at meg at powermobydick dot com and we'll figure it out.)
