When I get the chance to I love to read when I was a kid it was one of my favorite past times but now that I have a family to take care of,a Etsy shop,a blog & a full time job to maintain I don't always have the time to sit down & read. On that note I have always been a big fan of Ripley's Believe it or Not! so when I was offered a chance to review their book Strikingly True 2012 I made sure to make time to read through it. Strikingly True features incredible people such as Lucky Diamond Rich and his completely tattooed body, unusual animals like the giant deep-sea isopod, and one-of-a-kind works of art including Rev Mayer’s blood paintings.
Once I knew my book was on its way I felt like a child patiently waiting for a new toy to arrive,It didn't seem to get here fast enough.[Note the book did not take very long to get here I just wanted to read it] once it arrived I started reading it just a few short minutes after it arrived I took some time away from my blog for a few days to take the time to enjoy reading this book. Right away I started finding things I found fascinating I am sure my fiance was being driven a little insane when I tried to read every other one to him. This book offers a lot of reading materials on everything from people,to places & animals the book is 245 pages long each page has any where from 10-20 short paragraphs about some pretty remarkable feats for example here is one of my favorites "A stork named Eodan flies 8,080 Miles each year from South Africa to Brodski Varos,Croatia to visit his handicapped mate,Malena who is unable to fly.They have chicks each year and Rodan teaches them to fly.He then takes them with him to South Africa for the winter and returns with them to Malena in the spring" it was such a touching story its amazing what people & animals do for those they love. If love struck animals aren't your type of thing there are plenty of Tattooed people,Horrible accidents people lived through,Nature devastation & more for your to read through enjoy & get shocked by in this book of Strikingly True 2012. Ripley's Believe it or Not! never fails to surprise me they always offer something to fascinate me with,I have enjoyed working with Ripley's Believe it or Not! & hope to do so again in the future. I think this book is worth the read & would be a great book to reread after your done or even to pass along to a friend who might enjoy the contents of this book,If your looking for a Unique birthday or holiday present this book would make a great gift.This book took me a few days to read I received a lot of entertainment from this book & I am happy to have it in my book collection.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
