Take our Google-resistant book quiz challenge

Try our fiendishly tricky quiz and win a copy of ‘The Joy of Quiz’

 

I commissioned a YouGov poll for my book, The Joy of Quiz, and discovered that a shameful 11 per cent – at least of British people – have used their phone in a pub quiz. To exercise the part of your brain that Google may have made lazy, here are 10 questions about books which – hopefully – will not immediately yield to a search-engine request. Between them, they need a dollop of general knowledge, a spot of lateral thinking... and yes, probably a creative use of Google. Take the quiz below – closing date is Friday, November 24th, at noon. The winners will be announced later that day. Good Luck. If you are reading this on The Irish Times app, click here to play.
