  1. When I was growing up my grandmother subscribed to the paperback Ripley's Believe It Or Not. I couldn't wait to go visit her so that I could read them. I have loved them every since and would love to give this to my son so that he could learn to love them too.

  4. I can see this as something that Lucy and I can look at together and have a good laugh. It just looks like fun. When I was little I loved looking through encyclopedias and the Guiness Book of World Records. Probably where my love of trivia comes into play.
