This is a perfect book for casual reading. Each category has between fifteen and one hundred facts on a topic listed on the page and are exactly what the title of the book says, AWESOME! 5000 Awesome Facts by National Geographic has 224 pages of facts. In fact (pun intended), page 214 says, “If the average adult read 250 words per minute, it would take them about 400 uninterrupted minutes to read this book cover to cover.” Facts about animals, creepy crawlers, robots, candy, chocolate, and wacky hotels are just a few of over 5000 facts to read about. “The oldest known koi fish lived to be 226 years old. You could use this book for fun while with friends and family or for research on a homework assignment. There really are facts for everyone to enjoy. I like this book because it has so many facts about a wide variety of topics and it always kept me saying, “WOW!” This is a perfect book for short car rides, waiting at the dentist, or in between school and dinnertime. I really like the facts on dinosaurs and candy and highly suggest picking this book up for yourself. *You can view the original review at City Book Review
