Waterstones, Top 10 Gifts for Bookworms this Christmas

«The perfect gift for the sort of person (like me) who shouts the answers at University Challenge»

«Fiendish, funny and endlessly surprising, James Walton has provided the perfect volume for anyone who loves books, relishes a quiz or just fancies showing off at a dinner party»

«A must for those who think they know their literature . . . includes the unexpected, alongside the more serious»

Independent on 'Sonnets, Bonnets & Bennetts'

«Tip: Start the day with a quiz. My long-suffering partner bought me James Walton's The Penguin Book Quiz for Christmas. It wakes you up, gives you a laugh and makes you feel like you're not wasting your time, because you're learning things»

Jacqueline Wilson, The Sunday Times

«Detailed, entertaining and wonderfully informative, a must-have for quiz aficionados and bibliophiles alike»

Kevin Ashman

«It's so much fun. The perfect level for keen but not necessarily expert readers. Specific enough to make you reach back into your memory and occasionally kick yourself at not finding the answer, but not so specialised that you want to give up . . . I'll definitely be buying copies of this book as gifts»

«Few quiz questions make you smile, laugh or gasp. James Walton's always do. The Penguin Book Quiz is unceasingly enormous fun»

«Quite possibly the greatest social lubricant since the invention of alcohol. An absolute delight»

«How nice it would be if the family would sit around the Boxing Day fireside considering the questions in affable competition»

Daily Telegraph on 'Sonnets, Bonnets & Bennetts'
