Every year we receive The World Almanac and every year it is the only book my husband gets excited about when he sees. I receive at least 50-80 books a year and he comes home from work and notices this one right away. He runs his hand across the cover. Sits and reads it while he unwinds from work and every year he puts it under the Christmas tree telling the kids they should pick it up once in a while.
There is so much information in it and I doubt I have ever read cover to cover, I just open and wherever I end up, that is where I read from.
This is the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone but especially for those who are into research, reading, history and facts.
