Another Fabulous Factual GiveAway from @MapStudio…

November 26th, 2014 · 15 Comments

Another week and another GiveAway… This is our final GiveAway for the month of November after a month jam-packed with GiveAways… our previous MapStudio GiveAway: Coffee Culture is closed and you can look forward to the the results being published over the weekend. Our Justin Bonello GiveAway is still going strong… if you want to know all about the Karoo then pop over and enter that GiveAway too. Meanwhile this weeks GiveAway is What the Fact: 100s of useful facts everyone wants to know by from the MapStudio Team.

So here is a book that is packed with the most incredible facts… facts, facts, facts… pages and pages of the most amazing facts. This book is divided into twelve chapters… ranging from people, geography, the environment… business and technology, food and drink an even mysteries. Pages and pages of interesting goodies presented in easy to read blocks, lists, charts, maps and infographics. World facts and local facts…

Famous South Africans, Nobel Prize winners… famous authors. Unique things about South Africa, and the world… World Heritage sites in South Africa, and then in the world; Fastest growing cities in Africa, and fastest growing cities in the world; Strangest town names in South Africa and strangest town names in the world. Famous South African battle sites, and famous battle sites in the world… strange and unusual South African food and beverages; famous unsolved mysteries here and abroad.

I have to say that some of the facts take this book out of the “kid category” into the “teen category.” My kids would probably be a little concerned about ghostly encounters and notorious criminals. That being said… this is a great read for teens and up and because it has a working index it makes a good reference guide too. Strange and unusual facts and heaps of snippets to broaden your general knowledge, not to mention great conversation starters…

The GiveAway

We have two copies of What the Fact to GiveAway to our readers a copy for a reader in South Africa and one abroad…

We love it when our readers leave us comments, so to enter… leave us a comment: Tell us if you are reading our blog from South Africa or from anywhere else in the world.


This GiveAway works in the usual way, leave a comment before the end of Sunday, 30 November 2014. We will draw and publish the winners after that. I won’t respond to your comments as we do on our other posts because we don’t want to be included in our own giveaway. Our GiveAways are open to everyone: If you have won a GiveAway before never fear – enter away. If you live on the far side of the world – enter away. Postage takes forever from here but eventually it should get to you! Good luck and happy commenting!!!

We would like to thank MapStudio who supplied us with a copy of this book to review and two copies to GiveAway. We were not paid for the review and the opinions expressed in it are as usual, entirely our own.
