This week we received the latest edition of the popular Ripley’s Believe it or Not book series. Check out: Ripley’s Believe it or Not: Shatter Your Senses!

This is an all new collection of incredible stories that will boggle your mind. There are the strangest facts that will make you shake your head and wonder how they could possibly be true. There are lots of fascinating photos, some of which will make you cringe or gasp. A warning – you might want to avoid looking at some of these while eating because a few are kind of graphic. There are sections about all different types of odd trivia including animals, unusual health conditions, incredible achievements, and strange places. All of the short passages make this book sure to keep anyone’s interest. Plan to spend some uninterrupted time because once you start looking, you will not want to put it down.

This book can be found in the non-fiction section of the library in Dewey number 031. It is located fairly close to another very similar book, The Guinness Book of Records. If you are familiar with that one, you will probably enjoy this one, too.
