I am participating in the A-to-Z Challenge again this year. My theme is My Favorite Books. Most of the books I will be posting about, I have read more than once. After all, they are my favorites.
B is for The Book of Lists by David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace, and Amy Wallace.
I am a trivia fanatic. So when the first Book of Lists came out in 1977, I immediately bought it and read it from cover to cover. Here are a few examples.
- If William Shakespeare was known by his mother’s maiden name, he would be William Arden.
- Lunnule is the name of the crescent-shaped white mark at the base of your fingernail.
- Sugar, a two year old cat, travelled 1500 miles to get back to her owner’s new home. She had been left behind with a neighbor when her owners moved. Sugar found them 14 months later.
And for those of you not into trivia, how about B is for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
This is the story of a young Jewish girl in Nazi Germany. This story is narrated by Death. Phenomenal story. Read the book!
