If you’re a regular you’re probably aware that I’ve built up a large collection of quiz books over the last few years, and in particular a large collection of TV/radio tie in quiz books. If you haven’t already clicked away to pastures new in disgust at this admission of mine, and you’re interested in my thoughts on the various tie ins which I’ve acquired, then by all means check out the relevant page on my website, which you can find by clicking on this link : -
My Tie in Quiz Book Collection
At the risk of repeating what you can already find on the website, it all started when my wife bought me back a copy of the First TV Top of the Form quizbook from a church jumble sale, and said words to the effect of – this any good to you ? – I’ll be honest, I didn’t think it would be, but was pleasantly surprised to find quite a number of the questions were perfectly suitable for the quiz in the rugby club. When she compounded it a couple of weeks later by getting me the New Ask The Family Quizbook, the collection was underway.
Now, amongst my favourite tie-in books are three University Challenge Quiz books. All of them are excellent, and I have a particular fondness for the 1970s version , published by Arrow paperbacks, and with 4 competing Bambers on the front cover. Its surprisingly hard too. Not to take anything away from the mid 90s book, with teams from the first BBC series on the front cover, or the red one from about 2001 with JP . Both excellent and challenging books in their own right.
Well, to cut a long story slightly shorter, I found out today that another University Challenge quiz book is going to be published on October 7th. Yes, I am sad enough that I have already pre ordered a copy . If you’d like to check it out for yourself, then you can find a page for it on Amazon or any other online bookstore, I'm sure. The ISBN number is 1846078563
