    Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home. To remedy this, he formed the idea of journeying about his house from room to room to “write a history of the world without leaving home.”

    "Bill makes lint interesting"
    Overall

    Really think Bill Bryson should have been a teacher. The kids would have absorbed everything because of the way he tells stories around history. Getting to know the inventors and the innovations by story telling helps remember them and keeps your interest. I love everything Bill writes. He is my number one author.

  • Real Ponies Don't Go Oink!

    You don't have to be a hunter or camper to enjoy this collection of hilarious stories by a writer who is often compared to Mark Twain and Garrison Keillor. In fact, the charm of Patrick F. McManus' work is that it provides plenty of reasons for staying indoors, surrounded by friendly appliances. You'll laugh aloud as McManus and his friends, including Rancid and Crazy Eddie, venture into the great outdoors to face formidable foes.

    Ken says: "Real Honest Humor"
    "Manly Man book"
    Overall

    You know how there are girlie movies? Well this is a manly man book. I, a female, thought it was amusing, but not the hilarity that the reviews on this book indicated. Strangely a month after listening to it, that is the impression that still lingers. I can't remember the specifics of the story, but I remember I was waiting to laugh.
