On This Day -

A fun coffee table book, or, in the nicest possible way, a bathroom book. One that can be dipped into and put down to be dipped into again another time. It is full of useful information about what happened on which day which is interesting in it's own right but can also be used to impress other with your knowledge of certain things/events.
