Fun Fact Friday (#49)

Fun Fact Friday is a meme hosted by Lettora at I’m Booked! If you’d like to join and do your own Fun Fact Friday, just ask! At I’m Booked! Every week we’ll give you five new, fun facts.
This week’s five facts:

1. There's a bookstore in Australia where books are wrapped in paper with short descriptions so no one can "judge a book by it's cover."

2. Most new cars fake engine noise through speakers. They are quite silent otherwise.

3. In 2012, 22 baby girls in America were named "Kindle."

4. The richest 1% of the population owns 48% of the world's wealth.

5. The year 2015 will be one second longer than usual because of the slowing of the Earth's rotation.


  1. I'd love to visit that bookstore. It would be so cool!

  2. I know! If I ever visit Australia that will be the first place I visit. :)
