You will not be able to read the text at the same time as answering the quiz. To help, here are the questions for the books set this week, as well as a note of which pages you need to read in order to answer the questions. We would recommend writing these questions out in your orange book so you can note down the answers as you read. Then you can use these notes to help you complete the quiz. Alternatively, you could print the questions or keep this website open at the same time while you write the answers.
