Advertisement for a fellow writer (who doesn't know me; I'm receiving no commission)

I'm about to finish my third Bill Bryson book. That is, in full. I have read parts of several of his other books -- and the man has written quite a lot -- but haven't always had the schedule or attention span (not that the man can't hold one's attention, quite the contrary) to finish them.

Three years ago I blogged about my dear scribe, and should you care to peruse the post you may. Should you care to check a calendar you might note that I've been blogging for a while. Albeit occasionally intermittently, but...

Anyway, it's been nice to get back to ol' Bill. I guess I finished his autobiography last summer, so it hasn't been too long since I've paid him a visit, but even so, it's nice. I've missed ya, buddy old pal.

Oh, and you should get acquainted with Billy if you never have. My quick suggestion: start with A Walk in the Woods or In a Sunburned Country. But the man's written on all kinds of subjects, so if Shakespeare or science, for example, is more your thing, then he's got something for you there, too.

I'll let you get to the library now. A bientot.


  1. I'm a Bryson virgin; I need to change that.

  2. Which book did you just finish? I'm reading Neither Here Nor There at the moment. And had to read The Lost Continent after MK gave us that excerpt :)

    1. hey sis! i just finished "i'm a stranger here myself"
