I'm a Bill Bryson fan

 

There are probably only one or two books by Bill Bryson that I haven't read yet - and "A Walk in the Woods" isn't one of them. Check out the rest here.

"One thing you don’t want to do is be a guy sitting in a rocking chair on a stoop somewhere in a bathrobe and say, 'I wish I would've, I wish I could’ve.’ So, you make the most of your life."
