Notes From a Small Island is one of my favorites. I especially like the passage describing the man on the cellphone on the train ...

It's funny, I had the sense I was done with Bryson, but the menage got me excited again. Also walking about 1/1000th of the Appalachian trail last summer.

I just picked up a cheap copy of the Shakespeare book at a school book sale. Will see how it is.

I really loved this one and A Walk in the Woods as well as in A Sunburned Country, but couldn't warm up to I'm A Stranger Here Myself.

I agree. There were so many funny bits like that! He's such a funny mix of adventuresome and curmudgeonly in his travels, I get a real kick out of him.

I'm glad the Menage recharged you! I'm learning I'm not as interested in Bryson's non-travel NF, but I can't wait to hear how you like his Shakespeare book. I salute you for hiking ANY of the Appalachian trail--it sounds like some work!

I think that's the next book of his I'm heading for, now I'm really curious after hearing your opinion! Further bulletins as events warrant.
