    Fun Fun Fun!

    This is a really unusual and entertaining trivia book. Heard about it on the radio and thought it might be a typical question and answer trivia book but this one is hilarious! The author has the questions arranged in clever categories and so even if you don't know the answer you're cracking up.

    This book ROCKS with laughter and great oldies!

    This is a fun-filled, truly unique book with great songs from the 'oldies' era. The author has them arranged into really cute little quizzes, each with a theme that binds the songs together. The quizzes are designed to remind us of the SATs and stuff we took in High School, but High School was NEVER this much fun. (I would have been a MUCH better student.) My friends and neighbors all love taking the quizzes with me.
