Library Blog Quiz: Sleepy Edition

Posted: March 16, 2012 in Competitions

This morning while perusing the internet we were intrigued to learn that today, the 16th of March, is in fact World Sleep Day! (We immediately marked the occasion with a small celebratory nap under our desk.  [Not really!  Librarians are WAY too busy ruling the world to nap.])  According to the organizers of World Sleep Day, sleepiness is ‘a global epidemic that threaten[s] health and quality of life’.  Uh-oh!  We thought it was just a side effect of secretly reading books late at night!  Anyway, to celebrate World Sleep Day and all things snoozy, we have carefully hand-crafted a very tricky quiz about sleep in literature.

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 March 23rd, and winners will be announced on the blog later that day.  You must be a Uni High student to enter this competition.  Good luck!
