Reader reviews for That Book

See, these are the sort of books that I simply adore. Neither one of them were actually "little" except that they were somewhat shorter than regular hard back books. Both had 360+ pages, though, and were chock full of lists of interesting trivia. They reminded me a lot of the Book of Lists series from back in the 1970s, and covered a lot of the same sorts of things. People who dropped out of school, last words of famous people, men who were 7th sons of 7th sons (Glen Campbell and Perry Como, BTW), what famous people did during WWII, people who have/had a famous mother-in-law, this is the stuff I want to know about. LOL I thought these books were delightful. I had one or the other of them in the bathroom most of the month and when I finished them earlier this week, I went to put them on the shelf and the rest of my family asked me to leave them in there! LOL These both get a 5 for sure.

Like Schott's Miscellany, Journo-lists, and the Wallace/Wallechinksy efforts, this is a collection of useful and useless lists. Fun but ultimately pretty pointless.
