This book isn't exactly a "hidden" gem, because I think there's a WL for it, albeit not that long.

But I am reading a book and having SUCH a good time I had to share:  The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World.

I love trivia and thought I was going to get an interesting, but probably slightly dry, memoir.

Well, not only am I learning a lot, but I am laughing out loud as I read -- he has such a GREAT sense of humor.

I'm really loath to part with this book when I finish it, but I probably will.

In the meantime, I recommend it highly, highly, highly.  I can't remember when I've had so much just plain FUN reading a book.

I'm glad you are enjoying it so much!  I hope the next book I begin today is as good as your read.  ;)


(By the way, I love your 'Park elsewhere' sticker.  I can totally relate.)

I love AJ Jacobs' books!  The Know It All and The Year Of Living Biblically were funny and interesting.
