I've never heard of Bill Bryson, so he'll be the next author on my list to check out, after Tim Robbins.

I don't mind at all, in fact, I added you back. You're from the Charlotte county area?

Yep. :-) I grew up in Buffalo but moved to Punta Gorda when I was 16. After I graduated I decided to goto FGCU. I like it there for the most part...but I am just ready to be done with school there. I am ready to go on to the next part of my life.

Thats what I really got from the first Bryson book I read. He is a travel writer for the most part, humorous, but he has many different styles. He even just wrote a really good book about science called "a short history of nearly everything."

He just moved back to America from Britain and decided to hike the Appalacian Trail to reconnect with his roots in America. During the story you learn about his adventures - and in the end you learn that even though it might not have been what you expected it to be - you still completed your goal.

I am not an avid reader like you - but I am trying to read more because it does make me happy.

Well I need to go get ready for work. Have a great day and I will talk to you later.

I was born and raised in Port Charlotte, and led a nomadic life after high school. It looks like I've settled down for the time being here in Orlando, though.

Your description makes Bryson's writing seem very appealing to me - probably in part because I've wanted to be that sort of writer traveling those sorts of ways. I'll probably push up my next trip to Barnes and Noble, heh.

Have a magical day!
