Library Blog Quiz: Friday the 13th Edition!

Posted: May 13, 2011 in Competitions, Uncategorized

Happy Friday the 13th everybody!  Here at library headquarters we are having a busy day of extreme superstition: watching out for black cats, trying not to break mirrors, and being very careful not to spill any salt.  We have also discovered in the course of our research that it is bad luck to see an owl in the daytime, so we will be carefully avoiding those.  To celebrate this most unlucky of days, today’s quiz is spooky-themed: get ready for some tricky questions about creepy books!

 How to enter:  Fill in the form at the bottom of this post with your name, email address and the correct answers to all ten questions.  Entries which answer all questions correctly will go into the draw to win a book voucher from our literary friends at Readings book shop.  This competition will close at 10am on Friday May 20th, and winners will be announced on the blog later that day.  You must be a Uni High student to enter this competition.  Good luck!
