Friday 15th June Competition – Guess the Book and Guess the Author

Morning, morning!

For your amusement, delectation and delight today we have a Guess the Authors and a Guess the Books competition. Answers to before 4pm when the answers will be revealed (worth sending answers in even if you have not got all fourteen) Good luck!

A toughie this week – no one got all the authors and all the books. The authors are Roald Dahl, Germaine Greer, Samuel Beckett, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, JK Rowling, Alexei Sayle and Maya Angelou. The books are Straw Dogs by John Gray, Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, The Company of Fellows by Dan Holloway and The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. I am in a really good mood so I am going to give prizes to the four who entered (and had varying degress of success!) Congratulations Sam, Claire, Marin and Jo – I’ll email you soon 🙂 Thanks for playing – something a tad easier next week, methinks…


  1. Hi euanhirst,
    I’m bringing fifteen Canadian students to Oxford for a week as part of an advanced level 12 literature course (In Canada, that means they are 18 years old and top students) in UK. We will be there from July 6-12th in one of the colleges. Could we drop by Blackwell’s for you to show us what new novels are hot these days “on campus” ? I have been to the Oxford store many times and know how wonderful it is.
    truly, John Sweeney, Blyth International Summer Programmes, Toronto.
