Schott's Miscellanies are a trio of best-selling books by Ben Schott. They consist of a collection of trivia generally centred on the culture of the United Kingdom (and to a lesser extent the rest of the European Union and the Commonwealth). The first book was published in 2002 by Bloomsbury to widespread acclaim. The books are as follows: Schott's Original Miscellany, Schott's Food & Drink Miscellany, and Schott's Sporting, Gaming & Idling Miscellany. Together the three books have sold over two million copies, and Schott's Original Miscellany has been translated into more than 13 languages (including Japanese). Schott also compiles the annual Schott's Almanac, a modern take on the traditional almanac.
In December 2005 The Guardian newspaper, which described Schott's Original Miscellany as "the publishing sensation of the year", produced a special edition of its G2 section with selections from the 2006 edition of the book.
