PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Attention to Books of Interest My Short, Happy Life In "Jeopardy!" eBook: Brendan DuBois: Kindle Store: From award-winning mystery author Brendan DuBois comes this unique and inside view of America's favorite gameshow, "Jeopardy!" 

As a lifelong reader, fan of trivia and watcher of "Jeopardy!", DuBois tried twice to become a contestant on this Emmy-award winning show. But the third time proved to be a charm as he successfully auditioned for the program, and flew from his rural New Hampshire home to Los Angeles to tape his appearance and go head-to-head among some of the smartest people in America. 

Along the way he reveals information such as: 

-- The best way to prepare as a contestant. 

-- Important websites you should visit, and books you should read. -- What's it like to be "behind the stage" as the show is taped. 

-- And hey, what's Alex Trebek really like?
