A Questionable Publication

Ready-Made Quiz Book (Volumes 1-10), The - Mark LloydMany, many moons ago, the original Pillar Publishing (Dublin) published quiz books compiled by Joe Linnane, a host with Radio Eireann. In honour of this, and because I am quizophile, I have put together a series of ready-made quizzes under the predictable title of ‘The Ready-Made Quiz’

I’ve used the word quizophile without really researching it. If it means something unspeakably tawdry that two unmarried and consenting quizmasters get up to in the Green Room, then I apologise unreservedly.

The books are aimed at those who enjoy general knowledge and trivia, and those who set quizzes.

Each book is a self-contained quiz with 10 rounds of 10 General Knowledge questions. And they are available for pennies in eBook format.

I have also rolled the volumes up into one big quizbook, which is available in eBook and paperback.
