NEWPORT, KY.

The newest tourist attraction in Greater Cincinnati isn't a museum, sports team, amusement park or regional mall. It's an old bridge.

THE WORLD ALMANAC WORLD ATLAS 2006

Hammond World Atlas / $24.95

This atlas is a triumph of common sense. It starts with a respectable 103 pages of maps followed by a 45-page index. But it doesn't stop there. Next comes a time-zone map and more than 60 pages of country-by-country facts and figures on population, per-capita gross domestic product, life expectancies, literacy rates and major industries, for example. Flags and photos flesh out the text. Best of all, you are more likely to actually use this atlas because it is lightweight and spiral bound, with -- thank you, thank you! -- enough margin in the gutters so you don't miss a thing.
