Think you have read every piece of literature on the face of the earth and books hold no longer hold any secrets for you? Then here is your chance to prove how much your know by entering a new competition launched by the Mountain View Search engine giant, the aptly named 10 Days in Google Books game. Even if you don’t read all that much, it would be wise not to pass on this competition. Becasue if a question leaves you stumped, you can always use Google Books to find the answer.

The 10 Days in Google Books game goes something like this. Over a period of 10 days, Google will ask you 5 questions per day. All you have to do is correctly answer the 5 questions (you can use Google Books, and any other online resource you want to find the correct answer), then write a brief entry on the topic of books. Each day Google will select 3 submissions and will award them with a Sony Reader.

There are other prizes as well, apart from the 3 daily Sony Readers. The first 20,000 of you to play the game will automatically get Google Books laptop stickers.

What kind of questions can you expect Google to ask you in this competition? Google Books Associate Product Marketing Manager, Hicham Alaoui, sheds some light into the matter: “Which infamous book thief got caught stealing from the Chicago Public Library and was later acquitted on grounds of insanity? How many European cities are mentioned in Karen Fowler's "The Jane Austen Book Club?" And can you figure out what curious objects Dorothy is picking from a tree in this illustration from Frank Baum's "Ozma of Oz?" Stumped? Find the answers to these and other fun questions in the 10 Days in Google Books game.”
