In the digital age where everything is available online, I still love sifting through the pages of an almanac! I love that almost everything is at my fingertips whenever I need a quick reference. It can be difficult finding certain information on Google at times, whereas an almanac is nicely organized with an arrangement of categories that makes finding information much easier. An almanac, such as The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2015, is also a wonderful way to learn new and interesting facts since it contains a wealth of information that is mostly unavailable publicly elsewhere.
From its cover to its content, The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2015 embodies the must-know events and surprising developments that characterize the year 2014,” said Sarah Janssen, Senior Editor of the World Almanac. “We are proud that even as the world swiftly changes, The World Almanac and Book of Facts has remained a constant, authoritative source for more than a century, fulfilling all the entertainment, reference, and learning needs of readers around the country.”
