So, Christmas is over. Done. Finished for another fifty two weeks. Time to put your feet up and relax with a good book, eh? But wait! You don't have any new books to read! Apart from the autobiography of Joe Pasquale that your so-called-great aunt was adamant that you would love for Christmas. Oh no!

Worry not, dear readers. What's On North is here to help, as we always are, with an exciting new competition! Thanks to the festive beneficence of Waterstones we have £100 worth of its vouchers to give – GIVE - to one lucky person! Think of all the books you could get with that which have nothing to do with Joe Pasquale! Loads!

However, there is a catch – as there always is with these things. We have a little quiz you have to answer first, a little test of your 2013 book knowledge. I hope you've been keeping up, because this is a prize you definitely don't want to miss out on.

Send in your list of answers to our website goblin: Make sure that the Subject Line reads “Waterstones Book Quiz 2013”, and also put down your name and address so we can send the vouchers to you if you win. We won't store any of your information and we promise to get in touch with you via e-mail to let you know if you've won or not.
