Review:- Ed. Hilary McGLYNN – “Loads of Lists”

Year Published: - 2001
Where the book was from:- Helen’s
ISBN: - 1 85986 360 4
Pages: - 539pp
Genre: - Non-fiction – lists; trivia
How I came across it: - Checking out Helen’s bookcases
Rating: - ***** ****
One sentence summary:- As it says on the cover – loads of lists to browse, dip into, skim or read from cover-to-cover (which I bet few people have).

1500+ thematically arranged lists to amuse, excite, entertain as much as to inform – covers the serious to the seriously whacky.

  1. Thanks for including us on your list! Harold would have been honored.

    "Sex, money and power - I learned a bit about all of these from the Harold Robbins books, a number of which were best-sellers in the 1950s and 1960s." Hope this isn't too spammy for ya ;)
