    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.
  2. Entered :) Fairly confident except for number 3!
  3. A bit unfair as janner was there for the most of the last question!
    • Like Like x 1
  4. Completed the Questions

    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!

    Just the thoughts of a blonde ex wren.
