Need Inspiration for Books or Blogs?

I have a basket of books in my guest rooms. About half of these are volumes of miscellaneous facts, or trivia although some in the basket are various dictionaries containing useful, albeit esoteric, information.

Great Inspiration

If you're ever at a loss about what to write, browse books like this. Today, I'd like to tell you about a recent book purchase, the one about useless information. With a title like The Book of Useless Information, I couldn't say no to this little book.

The Book of Useless Information by Noel Botham is a treasury of arcane facts that may just give you an exciting idea for a blog post or a book. At the very least, it will provide you with a wealth of cocktail party chatter.


About 7% of Americans eat at McDonald's.
The Egyptian hieroglyph for 100,000 is a tadpole.
Diet Coke was invented in 1983.
The first man to distil bourbon whiskey was a Baptist preacher in 1789.
In the 1940's the Bich pen was changed to BIC because they were afraid Americans would pronounce it "bitch."

Add to Your Library

If you'd like a copy of The Book of Useless Information, Amazon has it in Kindle, Paperback, and Library editions.

Takeaway Truth

Books like this are perfect in guest bedrooms. They provide a little entertaining reading for a visitor as opposed to a novel which a visitor probably hesitates to begin.
