I don't even -have- all the books I needed for this, let alone read them all...xD

I might do the quiz myself though to see how much I've retained from the books I have read. -Chuckles-

It isn't that time consuming if you know the books (and own them) and there is the internet!

Welcome Tony!

The contest isn't called a Quest for nothing. Answering the questions is the main goal but that'll need... indeed: questing and researching

So do you have to sign up to do this quest thing??

I have a weekend free now (decided to skip the Council-wide Webelos Woods and just do the Troop Webelos Woods November 17th weekend), so I'll do it. Still need to get one book. I've got the other seven and just re-read the 2 Pern books I have. I don't have Chronicles of Pern -- that I'll read Thursday or Friday.

No Susan, here is no signing up. When it is announced in here and at the Quest site, hat the questions are up you just go download/copy them and start cracking.

Send them in before closure time and you're done... now that may sound easy but the Quest is not

I have two English assessments due in on the 14th...>.< Typical. Still, it's an incentive for me to try and get them at least mostly done this week beforehand. I'm still looking for the couple of books I need...I'm hoping to go tomorrow to the second-hand bookshops during the gap in my lectures. -Fingers crossed-

Okay, just curious. Last year we got the questions on Friday and sent them in on Monday. The dates reflected that also. 3-6. Are we getting them on Friday again this year? Or not until Saturday. Just need to make my plans. Thanks.

Can't remember that. It had at least one carriage with the driver in it (in the front; at another occasion I sat right behind his cabin).
