A quick quiz to finish off October, only lasts until next Sunday 3 November. There are five books on offer, all of which have been reviewed on ARRSE and come up with fairly decent reviews. Have a look at them using the search function should you wish to read them. Winners will be picked and prizes issued purely by lot. The books are:

Inferno by Dan Brown
Sword of Rome by Douglas Jackson
The Liberator by Alex Kershaw
The Tudors by Peter Ackroyd
Carver's Quest by Mick Rennison



Competition can be found here on Survey Monkey and all you have to do is answer the very simple questions correctly to be in with a shout.

Look out next Sunday for winners and answers.

but i wonder if in a way the last questions answer will be wrong

Didnt lady Grey became queen for 9 days before Mary and her consorts had her arrested and later beheaded

The entertainment was so much more interesting in those days.

RTFQ! Have a look at wiki and reconsider your post. In the event that you don't think of changing your mind, may I refer you to The Rulz!

I got them right too but missed out. I'll nick Traitor's Gate off you now.
