Non-fiction books can be fun and educational. “The Big Book of American Trivia” published by Tyndale is a book of over 3,000 questions regarding Americana. When I first started reading the book I thought: “Great for homeschoolers” later on I began thinking: “Great for bloggers” now I just think the book is simply great!
How smart are you? “Who claimed her husband was the victim of a “vast right-wing conspiracy”?” I am going to post this question on Facebook for all of my political junk friends. “Manny, Moe, and Jack, who retail automotive parts, are better known by what name?” I grew up in Maryland so I knew the answer to this question, do you? Do you love bible trivia? “What popular horror novelist began publishing biblical novels in 2005?” “”What recent president said, “The Bible is pretty good about keeping your ego in check?” One more question: “What famous movie director directed three lush epics about biblical subjects?”
If you are not into trivia you may not want to get this book but I would suggest that you reconsider. It is considered “trivia” because of all the things going on in the world some of the information found within the pages of “The Big Book of American Trivia” may not seem like country changing information. However, America has a rich history and this book is filled with it. I recommend you get the book.
