Remember, Spoiler readers, there are books to be won!

The Spoiler inbox has been going bananas all week, with entries to the recent book competition piling up like dirty plates in a student kitchen. Someone is going to have to sort this mess out.

And sorted it shall be. The two lucky winners will be announced on Monday morning – picked at random from the list. So for those who haven’t entered, here’s the deal:
