    This competition is for the chance to win a book which has been sent to me for review but has already been done on one of the sites. Happens a lot especially when the paperback book comes out after reviewing the hardback copy. All these books are new and a grand mixture of fiction and non-fiction. Winners will get the first book I pick off my bookshelf! I have not yet decided how many winners, but there will be a few - I need to clear my bookshelf.

    To enter the competition go to Survey Monkey : complete the three extremely simple questions correctly and you will be in with a chance of getting a new book.

    The entry form is here: POT LUCK - APRIL 2013 Survey

    Competition will run until Sunday 28th April 2013.
     
  2. Entered. Suggest that if Wits wins he should be given a book on " How to make friends and Influence Skimmers"

    I have more suggestions for giving out the books. I'm sure there will be a few more for me, which I suspect I can already guess.

    Dungeons and Dragons - Blackrat (With the foreword wrote by Josef Fritzl)
    Jenny Craig - Sumo (Watch his dress size drop before your eyes)
    Grumpy Auld C*nt - Rumrat (Written after his giro was stopped)

    Gok Wans secrets to Style - Frogman007 (Why a 40 something man shouldn't be dressed in speedo's)

    Once again people are not reading the questions - less than a third correct answers at the mo. RTFQ!

    Please no PMs regarding this - I won't respond, too much else to do. Answers will be revealed at the end of the competition.

    If you have not had a go yet, jump in, it's free!
     
  10. What else do you expect when two thirds entering the competition are submariners:grin:

    So I wasn't meant to count Daniel Day-Lewis?
     
  17. looks like I am in for dress size reduction? does that mean I have to buy a dress?
    Unfortunately there is evidence from a sods opera out there somewhere?

    If I could understand Sumo's post above then I might just reply to it but in the meantime...........

    Just 24 hours to go to the end of this competition and still there are only 33.3% correct entries, people are just not reading and understanding the questions.

    So if you have not had a go yet there is a good chance of winning if you read, understand then get the questions correct. I am looking forward to putting up the answers tomorrow!

    Done, and on googling your Regimental piss up date either you or the websites I looked at seemed to differ..... (So I guessed)

    Good guess but this is like the TV game, Perfection, I need all three answers to be correct!
