Review:

Who says a thorough reference book has to be dull? Filled with minutiae and irrelevance as well as useful information, Chase's Calendar of Events is about as eclectic as it gets. Turn to a day and find an armful of fact--not all of it relevant, but pretty much all of it fun. Birthdays and anniversaries of historical happenings are duly noted with capsule descriptions of the whos, whats, and whys. Need a reason to celebrate? How about Hug an Australian Day, April 26? Or Answer Your Cat's Question Day, January 22? Or National Mole Day, October 23? Special events with fixed schedules--the Festival of the North in Ketchikan, Alaska; Mudbug Madness, in Shreveport, Louisiana; the Edinburgh International Festival; and the Super Bowl, for instance--are properly inked in so you can't possibly forget them. Best of all, the book comes with a postcard redeemable for a free, searchable CD-ROM of its more than 12,000 entries. Irresistible and dangerously addictive entertainment. --Sunny Delaney
