Default Valentine's Day Romance Quiz 2011!

As we did two years ago with The Lady, this Valentine's Day we will be having another Romance Quiz, this time on Stitch In Snow. If you don't have SiS don't despair! The quiz will be half SiS and half based upon couples across Anne's worlds. It will be scored, but there will be no prizes (except bragging rights.) Date: February 19-20

And if you've always wanted to read Stitch in Snow but never gotten around to getting your hands on it, you have a month -- plenty of time to buy and have it shipped or order through interlibrary loan, and then read before the quiz!

It really is a charming romance, with a dash of mystery thrown in.

That's very kind of you to consider that.

Not being quite sure what time zones you are in, perhaps if I say I am 13 hours ahead of GMT, that might be easiest for you to work out

If you put it up Friday and we have it in by Monday that would work for me too but it's up to staff. Suggestion only.

Ok, thanks Cheryl.

Unfortunately I'm unable to find my book and with the way my hand's blown up, I think I'll give it a miss this weekend. If I get a chance to do so during the week and find my book and answer the questions, I'll have a go at it but too tired and stuffed to think straight properly at the moment. Good luck to those who are participating

I'm afraid the quiz sort of slipped my mind... I got a little carried away buying AMC books instead of answering questions on them....

Just sent my answers. You didn't say to put any identifying information in there, so I didn't. I'm assuming you'll just answer to the email addy. Then I got to thinking maybe I should have. Is it alright as is, or should I send a new one with identifying information in it?

I should be able to figure it out Kevia.

If anyone misses the deadline but still wants to enter, go ahead. The official winner will need to have gotten answers in on time, but we'll wait a couple weeks to release the answers so you still have time!

Thanks Cheryl, I may need it after being to the doctor's today. I needed a bit of R & R after being stung by a bee last week and my hand hasn't quite got over it yet.
