From the setter :

"In this modern day of recycling, I have used a Quiz from 2010 – with all of the answers having a Literary theme... but you do not need to have read any of the books to solve any of the clue!!! You will find easy, easy cryptic, anagrams and easy (ish!) clever clues which, when solved, will give you a Literary answer. ALL OF THE ANSWERS YOU NEED ARE ON PAGE 4!!!! Simply work out which answer goes with which Question and write them clearly alongside each clue.

All proceeds of this Quiz will go towards our fundraising for a Guide Dog to be named Pearl – to celebrate our Pearl Anniversary as a company... only £800 needed to reach our £5,000 target."

Info regarding a recent quiz

I hope that I am doing this correctly. Firstly, I hope that you are all taking care and are safe and well. Unfortunately there is going to be a delay in the result of the Dog Quiz as well as the New Quiz. A couple of weeks ago my computer screen had the Blue Death Screen, I managed to clear it. Just as I started to type the new quiz, my screen went to No Signal and the computer had the Orange light, it is Dead! An IT friend is looking at it and hopefully, it will be up and running very soon. I hope that you all manage to see this. Take care and stay safe and well.
