A great reference tool, but even more importantly, this fascinating compendium of hundreds of lists will delight and inform book lovers of all ages. Thousands of interesting and entertaining facts, terms and trivia about literature, related to genres, literary periods, themes, authors, characters, and awards...even lists of books and poetry available on audiocassettes, as well as computer software. Among the numerous lists:
-- The whimsical and weird, rare book values, and "daffynitions"
-- Long-running Broadway plays and Drama Critics' Circle Awards
-- Unique lists of inventions, banned books, and horror story masters
-- Fiction from around the world by decade.

Other offbeat and unusual lists include authors epitaphs, world famous writers pseudonyms, a short work by Leo Tolstoy, the books written by "anonymous, " and their current value.

The broad scope of topics, combined with clear organization, make this book an excellent source, and perfect holiday gift, for any bibliophile who enjoys browsing for the sheer fun of discovery.
