GIFT IDEA – THE ULTIMATE BOOK OF TOP TEN LISTS
I’m really looking forward to checking this book out myself. I love lists of facts because they’re interesting and fun. The book would be a great gift for the person who has everything and the person you don’t know what to get, as well as trivia buffs.
