Meet the Beatles for Real Trivia Contest!

I have held a contest on this blog once before so this is now the 2nd contest that is being held.    In reading over the fanzines that I try to model the blog after, I realized that they held contests all of the time.    So I am going to start trying to do the same on a semi-regular basis.    First is a trivia contest.   All of the answers I found my going through the archives in the blog.     That is your only hint.   The winner of the contest wins the book "A Date with a A Beatle" by Judith Kristen and it is autographed by the author!    This is how it works.  

1.  Once you are ready to enter the contest email me your answers to
Do NOT put them in the comments section. 

2.  I will score your answers.   The person who gets the most answers correct is the winner.  If there is a tie, then each person in the tie will be assigned a number.   I will use an online automatic number picking sight to choose the winner.

3.  All trivia entries must be entered by June 30th.   

Good luck!!!!

This is the book you could win!
