♕ Collective Reading ♕

Before we start with revealing the winners of the KRA Quiz 2012, so wonderfully created by Servetus, one news ahead of time:
On 23rd of September 2012
a collective reading of “The Sunne in Splendour” by Sharon Kay Penman is intended to start.
Initiator is Fanny/iz4blue with her blog DistRActed Musings of one ReAlity.
News and schedule will be available at the end of this week at her blog and at the Facebook page ‘Institute of Armitage Studies‘.
We will keep you informed as well.
If you want to join in and still need a copy of the book, please consider to make your purchase via the link at, where reference fees will go to the charities selected by Mr. Armitage. Thank you! – Print & Kindle edition
Reference fees gained through links at the KRA website also go to the RA-charities.

We had a lot of participants trying their luck in the scavenger hunt and most of them did really well with all the questions.
Four participants just were top and got not only all questions right, but also in a speed and accuracy which was astonishing.
It therefor was so very hard for us to decide, who of those four knowledge champions, should win and be our

KRA Champion 2012

So we came up with the idea to share the price and give badges of honour to all four of our KRA knowledge champions.
Here are the prices and options. The chosen itemn will get an individual inscription for each of the four KRA Champions:
