Hi! I'm new here and I have two questions.
First is, does anyone know of a website or actual physical book that I could use as a basis to do some recreational dinosaur research? Kind of like a workbook that kids get in school, only geared towards adults. I found an online quiz that I was using for some questions. I'd read the question, and then study my dino encyclopedias for the dinosaurs listed in the multiple choice answers. Once I had an answer to the question, obviously I selected the correct dinosaur.
That was fun while it lasted, but I've finished it now, and I cant find any others worth my time. Most quizzes I've found are aimed at young people. That, and I would love to have a workbook that would allow me to go snuggle up in bed with my books, rather than sit at a computer all night. Anywho...
Second question is, do you think there would be much interest in a dinosaur shop full of hand made bits and bobs? EVERYTHING would be tastefully dinosaur themed. Anybody can sell a stuffed T-Rex made for babies but when it comes to adults with a love for prehistoric creatures there isn't much selection. I was thinking of making bags, coin pouches, jewelry, teeshirts, perhaps a decorated pair of shoes or two, accessories, soaps, stationary...All kinds of stuff. Thing is though, I have no idea if something like that would really take root, yanno? So I thought I'd ask the community.
Thanks for your time everyone.
