Travel Memoirs

by Emily Roberts on June 28, 2013

Bill Bryson is the funniest writer working today. That’s my opinion. He has traveled widely, lived in Britain and the US, and written about science, language and, of course, travel.

My extra- special favorite Bryson book is “A Walk in the Woods”, the tale of an overweight middle-aged man (being Bryson) and his even more out of shape childhood friend Stephen Katz, as they kike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.

But don’t trust me. The Book Haven has a great review of it. Buy it where you buy good books. For an audiobook of the same journey by someone else entirely, listen to David Miller’s  AWOL on the Applachian Trail.
