Ripley’s Believe It or Not Reality Shock Book Review

I have been a fan of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not since I was little girl. I have visited their locations in Myrtle Beach, SC and Toronto, Canada and totally enjoyed them. Unfortunately, I have not been able to take my kids to these awesome locations. When I was given the chance to review the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Book Reality Shock, I jumped at it!

I love how this book is divided up into different sections instead of mixing everything together. It’s broken down into world, animals, sports, human bodies, pop culture, transport, feats, art, food, and beyond belief. This book was even more enjoyable than I figured it would. I love reading these interesting facts. My kids enjoyed them as much as I did. I even got Del interested in a few facts.

Del and I have gone to Perkins in Summerville, SC as our restaurant of choice for ages, but then we went one day and it was GONE. It was replaced with the Mellow Mushroom. I’ve heard from MANY people in Summerville that this new place is a really good place to eat. I haven’t had the pleasure of going there, but I was tickled pink to see that they were mentioned in this book. Their tie-dye cheesecake literally caused someone to go into shock.

I don’t want to give away too much from this book that captured our attention. I assure you though that there is something for everyone’s interests in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Reality Shock! ir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1609911091 I literally was going from one person to the next reading off different sections of this book with them. Everyone was in amazement over something! I would recommend this for anyone who loves to read unique facts. I know that it will be one of those books that is picked up many times over. Plus the information we learned definitely makes for good conversation too.
