    Slightly different competition this time with the prize being any one of 6 books that have been sent to me by Publishers but which have already been reviewed on ARRSE. As ever, the competition is accessed by completing the entry form on SurveyMonkey which can be found here. Very simple questions with easy answers. The winners will be drawn from those who answer the questions correctly and the prize will be one of the books shown below. No particular order and I will select which winner gets which book. Offers in sealed brown envelopes to the usual address! Competition will run until Sunday 14th July which gives plenty of time to enter.

    The books are

    These are all paperback editions and will be a good read for the summer (if we ever get one!) so have a go and give yourself a chance to win some good reading material. ​

    Another bump for this competition which runs for another week. I notice that on Survey Monkey I said it will finish on 8th July whereas it should have read 15th July, so plenty of time to do your 'research' and answer the very simple questions and give yourself a chance at some good summer reading for the holidays - or during the Olympics if you have been spammed for working there.

    Survey Monkey amended accordingly.

    A few people getting mixed up with their Generals!! :)

    Just 25 hours to go in this competition so still plenty of time to look up Google for the correct answers and enter the competition for one of these books.
  11. Done. I could do with another book ;)
