Holiday 2010 Giveaway: Guinness World Records 2011 (Hardcover Book) [CLOSED]

The Guinness Book of World Records is a yearly publication that is always highly anticipated. Filled with interesting, unique, crazy, and sometimes weird and creepy records, it is sure to entertain children and adults of all ages. The 2011 edition does not disappoint. From the hairiest family to the most weight lifted by a tongue, this book definitely delivers on being a Guinness treasure.

We all really enjoyed reading this book and looking at the pictures. The little ones were particularly intrigued by the photos of all the records while we read the text to them. My nine year old, Avery, has been asking for this book for Christmas, so he hasn’t seen it yet but I know he will be elated because he is a true Guinness fan. If you’re a fan of the Guinness World Records Book, the 2011 edition lives up to the standard Guinness has set in the past.

For more information about Guinness or the book, including where to buy, check out their website, GuinnessWorldRecords.com . The Guinness Book of World Records retails for $28.95 and can be purchased at many places including Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Borders. The ebook version is also available to U.S. and Canadian residents for $12.99 .
