It's a giveaway!

Tuesday, March 15, 2011



Yes, you read right! This is my very first own giveaway and today I give to you the most awesome of awesome!  This book I found in a little-bitty bookshop in Bedfordview might be the coolest thing since 1987 (yup, that was the year I was born). If you love anything general knowledge and all things quizzy, then enter this give away.

"What does the Mona Lisa have in her left hand?"

"List the nine activities which are traditionally forbidden in public swimming pools?"

From American presidents to Welsh surnames, poker hands to the Von Trapp children, and from London Underground stations to the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber, test yourself and your friends with On the Tip of My Tongue - a quiz book with a difference (no I didn't think this out, I just copied the book's cover.)




Do know that I part with this book with a heavy heart, because it is just that cool!
It asks a million-and-one questions and if you don't know the answers off-the-cuff, you can always have a peek in the back of the book for the correct one. Along with the answers the book also gives a few titbits about a certain subject, for extra knowledge me thinks!

And with the book you can also win this original artwork bookmark, which was painted by the shop owner herself.


How to enter:
Be a follower of this blog with Google Friend Connect! (Click "Follow" in the upper nav bar and follow with Google/Blogger, Twitter, Yahoo, or Aim!) and then leave a comment with your email address! (This is just one entry!) You must do this entry first to be eligible for additional entries!

To gain additional entries, you can blog, tweet, update your status on Facebook with a link over to the giveaway.

These all count as extras, but you have to let me know that you did this by commenting on this post.  

Lastly, answer this easy question: Name the four attendees at the Mad Tea Party in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. (This is one of the questions in the book.)

The winner will be announced by next week Friday.
