A Short history of Nearly Everything is one of my favorite books. A Walk in the Woods was hilarious. He actually visited the area I lived in and mentioned it in the book. You always wander what outsiders think of Appalachians when they actually meet us. Bryson used humor but was respectful at the same time.

Have read The Thunderbolt Kid and A Walk in the Woods. Both made me laugh out loud. Really enjoy his books.

Have you read 'A Short History of Nearly Everything' by Bill Bryson? I love it and have read it 3 times already. That is, I have listened to it on my ipod 3 times. I haven't gotten any of his other books yet, but thanks for the reminder!

I don't know which is nicer, losing 2 lbs the day AFTER Thanksgivng or finding a great author. I've never read any Bill Bryson, but In A Sunburned Country was great and very timely because of the election drama in Australia. I have The Thunderbolt Kid on my night table stack.
