5.0 out of 5 stars I learn something new every day January 17, 2010
This blog is full of fascinating facts that are fun to read every day. I just learned how to get free HD tv channels, that Listerine used to be a floor cleaner, and why satellite dishes are gray. So interesting! Highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Super surprised... April 19, 2011
When I read the description of this, I thought, wow...this could be pretty interesting. My hopes weren't too high though because I haven't had a whole lot of luck with blogs. I used my 14-day free subscription and instantly, I knew so much that I never would have known before.

Within one day of having the Broken Secrets App, I had learned:
- Why some restaurants provide wet towels at meals
- Secret uses for olive oil
- How to chop onions without crying
- Why buses open their door at railroads
- Why aluminum foil is dull on one side
- Food chains to display calories on menu by 2014
- Disney movie secrets
- The fastest way to fold a shirt
- Military tanks are named after water tanks
- March madness teams are paid for performance
- Sunscreen and sunblock are not the same thing
- Not making your bed kills dust mites
- Baby proofing your home on a budget
- How to cure hiccups
- Transport suit jackets inside-out to prevent lint
- Cocktail terminology
- Toilets: Taboo for TV until 1957
- Blue eyes are not actually blue
- Brain freeze is triggered in the sinuses
- Real names of celebrities
- Secrets of the red carpet
- Fertilizer can melt snow and ice
- How to lean up a leaking battery
- Craft breweries cannot brew more than 6 million barrels annually
- Your passport may expire before the expiration date
- Boxed wine isn't necessarily bad wine
- More spent on flowers at christmas than valentines day
- People don't explode in space, and the banana plant is a herb

Whew...what a list. All of these topics were completely random and all very interesting. They were a decent size (about 2-3 kindle pages) so they gave you just enough information to inform you but not overwell you.

If you are looking for a easy, fun, enjoyable, interesting read, THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly one of the best blogs for Kindle June 1, 2010
This is the first blog I kept after my trial. I have tried dozens of other blogs before this. It is updated almost daily, and it is very well written. The articles are insightful, humorous, educational, and entertaining. My attention is captivated every time, and the subjects nice to share in conversations. (At least I'll have more to discuss at parties.) The best thing about this blog is that it seems to be directed at any age, gender, or circumstance. I highly recommend trying this out. When you do, give it a solid chance. I was skeptical at first glance, but now I'm thrilled I took the whole trial time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and useful info. Very enjoyable. January 18, 2010
I recently discovered this blog via a discussion thread on Amazon.com. I enjoy the variety of topics covered. From making the perfect ice cubes, to the meaning behind AM/PM, getting the most for a charitable donation, free 411, the origin of Boxing Day (something I've always wondered about but never investigated) and even the benefits of various colors of sunglasses -- there's a bit of everything.
