    1. I've been reading non-fiction to relax, lately, which is my excuse for this one. It's aimed at kids, and basically debunks various urban myths like the idea that people swallow eight spiders per year in their sleep. It's very simplistic, but kids would probably enjoy it, and it wasn't bad for me to read in the twenty minutes before bed, either.Edit: Now I'm reading the QI Book of General Ignorance, I have a feeling this is plagiarised. I'll compare them side by side when I've got chanceETA: The [...]


    2. Mais um livro que mostra que devemos passar algumas vezes na secção infanto-juvenil para encontrar estas pérolas que nos fazem questionar coisas tão simples como se os morcegos são cegos ou se os elefantes têm realmente medo de ratos, como diz a tradição.Leitura suave e despretenciosa, como sería de esperar tendo em conta o publico alvo, mas que nos faz ver que há imensa coisa que nos rodeia que desconhecemos.


    3. What a great little book of odd facts, busting myths (or explaining truths) that so many believe, like: the average person swallows 8 spiders per year;Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world;chocolate gives you pimples;there is no gravity in space;bats are blind;and many more!The science behind each truth is explained simply enough that even my non-scientific brain could follow it, and some of the myths include how the stories got started.


    4. Even though it's for a younger audience, I still enjoy a good myth-busting book now and again. This one's full of little day-to-day myths and explains them away in a down to earth way. It's a nice break from the heavier stuff I've been reading.Took me a while to finish it, what with my Kindle dying on me


    5. Great book. Taught me lots of facts I didn't know and corrected me on lots of facts I thought were true but actually aren't. It was written in a friendly yet informative way and was extremely interesting. :)
