Just plain fun facts in a easy to listen to format

If you are a trivia buff like me and like to peruse the bathroom readers
such as Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. This is the audio book for you. Granted I am on my third listen through on this one to pick it all up. Of course some are more intriguing than others but on the whole very interesting material split up among several readers so you never get tired of just one narrator's voice.

Highly recommended!

A lot of fun. If you only have five minutes in your car or an hour on the bus, this is the perfect book to listen to. Lots of fun facts, riddles and trivia.
