South Carolina has been home for AnneMarie since 2001. Her favorite part of the state is Lake Jocassee. An App State alumna, it's always the mountains; the lake bonus makes it heavenly. When not writing about the state, she may be spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, or out somewhere enjoying nature.
It’s been almost five decades since The Guinness Book of World Records broke a record itself in 1974, becoming the biggest-selling copyright book in history with sales to date totaling nearly 24 million. Some of the types of world records set and broken are quite impressive and some are downright bizarre. And to think that the world’s largest collection of telephones is right here in South Carolina seems … well, a little strange, too. But it’s true!
Communication is so crucial in our lives and the invention of the telephone certainly made it easier and quicker when there’s distance between two parties needing to talk. It’s neat to see older versions of these devices preserved and even still in use!
