Retro Review: Improve Your General Knowledge in Leisure Time
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Improve Your General Knowledge in Leisure Time!
WEB ADDRESS: gklt.blogspot.com
BLOG DESCRIPTION: It provides readers with information that people should know as their general knowledge; the knowledge that is well known or must be known by everyone. This blog is to help people establish their common framework in a social context to know general items in various areas of social life, science, business, technology, art, sport, universe, creatures, etc. It presents the information in an easy way to read, memorize (also to improve memory) and self-test. So readers could improve their general knowledge while enjoying their leisure time.
MY REVIEW: Each entry in Improve Your General Knowledge is simply a piece of trivia.
Jeopardy: The American quiz show featuring trivia in topics such as science, literature, history, music, culture, sports, etc.
Cold Mountain: wounded soldier, Inman, leaves the Civil War and walks home to his sweetheart Ada in Charles Frazier’s book: Cold Mountain.
The Falkland Islands: IN 1842, the British made Stanley the capital of the Falkland Islands of Argentina.
Well, the trivia is interesting, and it can certainly act as a spring board to do further research, should you find one of the trivia pieces is interesting.
I just wish that each piece of trivia would actually give a bit more information. Two paragraphs are better than one!
