Don't Know Much About History, But I Do Know That I Love Free Books

Dang, now I've got that song running through my head: Don't know much about history/Don't know much biology/But I do know that I love you, and I know that if you loved me, too, what a wonderful world this would be. I think I see American Idol in my future ... hee hee.

Anyway ... I received two copies of Don't Know Much About Anything Else by Kenneth C. Davis by mistake, so Davis' publicist has authorized me to give one away. Yay! The book is one in a series about all kinds of subjects, and features random facts about everything from Andrew Lloyd Webber to Flag Day to Ohio. I've only skimmed the information, but it looks fun and interesting.

So, what do you have to do to snag your very own copy? Just leave a comment on this post telling me about one subject you "Don't Know Much About." Comments must be in by midnight on September 30. Good luck!

  1. Dang, now I'm going to be singing that song all night too!

    Let's see... one thing about which I know very little about is art and art history. I can't keep the names of the various periods and styles and schools straight to save my life.

    This book looks like it'd be fun to browse through. Please enter me!

  6. OK Susan, because we have a lack of books here, I am going to play. Although you are aware of many things that I don't know much about...I would have to go with the Revolutionary period. Ever since I have watched the National Treasure movies I have been interested in that time period. :)

  11. That sounds like a really fun book!

    I always tell my kids "I know nothin'!"

  13. It's hard to pick an area when there are so many... I would have to say I don't know much about the stock market, Wall street, the economy etc., and I'm scrambling to figure it all out in light of current events. I have a long list of terms written down on the subject that I need translated: derivatives, hedge funds, monaline insurers--I seriously need a "dummy" book!
