May 2020 competition - a word search with attitude
In the second (and last, for now) in a mini-series of word search puzzles, you're invited to find 44 members of a (larger) collection in this grid, reading in any direction (but always in a straight line).
One of the items has 4 letters; all of the others have 6 letters or more.
When you've found all of the items, unused letters reading across and down from top left to bottom right will spell out a relevant quotation. To enter the competition, please send this quotation (together, optionally, with your thoughts on its truth) to this email address:
As always, the first correct answer drawn out of the Wise Owl randomised sorting hat will win a £50 Amazon voucher.
Last week's puzzle asked you to guess the 48 countries in Europe. Unused letters spelt out a quotation from "The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham. You can see the answer - and winner - here.
