Annabel's House of Books

Noli domo egredi, nisi librum habes – Never leave home without a book.

Mostly Bookbrains

Dear Booklovers,

On Tuesday November 3rd, on behalf of Mostly Books I’m hosting a Literary Quiz entitled ‘Mostly Bookbrains‘ at the Manor Preparatory School in Abingdon. Guess who’s Quizmaster and writing the questions? Yes, it’s me.

We will cover the whole world of books – from bestsellers to prizewinners, cover art to author photos, children’s books to all sorts of non-fiction, all are included.
You are invited to submit teams of up to eight people, or just book your place(s) and we’ll make up teams on the night. The entry fee is just £2 per person if paid in advance (£3 on the night) and there will be a cash bar with wine, beer and soft drinks. All profits will be donated to Helen & Douglas House, the wonderful hospice for children and young people in Oxford. Tickets from Mostly Books above.

We’ll also have a Bookswap Table. Bring a book you’ve enjoyed and are happy to pass on, and swap for another at half time. (I nicked this idea from Scott at Me & My Big Mouth who runs the Firestation Book Swap monthly events in Windsor.)

Now I must go an compile some more questions!

  1. My book group are all set for an evening out! Looking forward to it (with a degree of nervousness about displaying our ignorance in certain literary matters….)

  2. Thank you for planning to come! I'm hoping it'll be fun rather than too taxing – being the first book quiz I've done, pitching the questions at the right level is slightly tricky, but I am including plenty of entertaining tosh as well as the high lit end, and hopefully lots in between …

  3. Oo, definitely interested, I'll try to get a team together…
