You may well see bits and pieces of publicity for our new book 1339 QI Facts to Make Your Jaw Drop in our other media. For the most part, I don't suppose we'll be bothering you about it too much here, but if there's anything noteworthy, I'll post it on this thread.

You might be interested (or not) for instance, in seeing this thing that myself and John Mitchinson (menocchio around these parts) did for Waterstones, it's a 'match the facts' quiz with the prize of a signed book:

I'll probably get at least one of these in a month anyway ('tis my birthday next month as well as Christmas, and my and Mr Swot's family seem incapable of communicating with each other about gifts) but I'll have a go at the quiz anyway.

Was it just me and some bad caching or did the third quiz have no possible answer for one of the questions?

I think it should be ok. Here's the video for people to check for themselves, anyway. Sorry about the sound quality; and my horrific voice:

The book's out today, by the way. :)

They've mangled the URL at the bottom (http://bit.ly/1c4J5RI)
but I've tribbed up the book here to compensate:

It's #24 in books at Amazon.co.uk well done!

I have really enjoyed this book, I have been thoroughly intrigued whilst reading it. I found the facts interesting and I haven't been able to put the book down since I started reading it. This book is one of the most factual and favourite books I have read. It was a pleasure to read.

Managed to get hold of a couple to give away as secret santa to entice more people over to the dark side... :)

It just occured to me that I didn't receive a copy of this. The families must have over-corrected.
