A Walk in the Woods
A Walk in the Woods | Bill Bryson
God only knows what possessed Bill Bryson, a reluctant adventurer if ever there was one, to undertake a gruelling hike along the world's longest continuous footpathThe Appalachian Trail.The 2,000-plus-mile trail winds through 14 states, stretching along the east coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine. It snakes through some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in North America, as well as through some of its most poverty-stricken and primitive backwoods areas.With his offbeat sensibility, his eye for the absurd, and his laugh-out-loud sense of humour, Bryson recounts his confrontations with nature at its most uncompromising over his five-month journey.An instant classic, riotously funny, A Walk in the Woods will add a whole new audience to the legions of Bill Bryson fans.

This classic can‘t be missed. It‘s still fun, still relevant, still a great read. Even if you never intend to hike the AT, it‘s a thoughtful read about nature and the humans within.

JaclynW Sorry I missed this! I'm just getting home from 3 weeks in Europe. Thanks for thinking of me! I've always wondered about the book you tagged. The author sounds intriguing, the style of writing seems different. Maybe I should finally pick it up! A book I love to recommend is The Hearts Invisible Furies by John Boyne. I make my bed every day usually, except on the weekends. 😆 I do not like cold pizza but love it hot. My shoe size is 8 1/2. 2w
jb72 @JaclynW No worries! I hope you had fun. I went to England only in 1991. I‘d love to visit all of Europe someday. 2w
JaclynW We had a great time! This time we visited the Netherlands (Haarlem and Amsterdam), Belgium (Brussels, Ghent, Bruges, Gesves, Namur) and Ireland (Dublin, Dingle, Cashel, Cork, Kilmallock, Rush, Skerries). We love Europe!! I would love to visit England again. I've been to London (2 times). I would love to see the countryside though. Where in England did you visit? 2w
jb72 @JaclynW I flew into London and spent a few days there and then onto Heswall. I haven‘t traveled in many years and I miss it. 2w
JaclynW @jb72 Cool. I hope you get to travel more soon! 2w

Not as much as I wanted to have on the books, but if I don't go to sleep you will all hear my story on an episode of snapped. My Husband didn't put away something that was his (for months) and now can't find it. Not only did he not put it away he is blaming the loss on anyone but himself, and if he put it somewhere that is where is goes, (not in a house with 2 kids, 1 dog, and 4 cats). So goodnight and here is to a better tomorrow. #24b4monday

This pretty kitty is distracting me. She is my rarely social cat. For the most part the only human interaction she allows is mine, Sometimes my son, rarely my daughter, and never my husband, visitors will never see her. I should be reading but she is demanding some love. #24b4monday #eyrethecalico 2:24:09

I had a commitment last night, so I didn‘t get a walk in or finish my book. It‘s been too hot to walk in my area except early or late.
This is a re-read for me, & it‘s been a long time since I read the whole book. I still love it. Right now, I really want to hike but will have to wait until at least tomorrow morning. I accepted a long time ago that I‘m not a backpacker so will make do with shorter hikes. 👇

Scochrane26 I know Bryson‘s stats about wildlife & trees are outdated, but it frustrates me when I read books from 20 yrs ago about environmental concerns that are even worse now. Environment is a major issue I care deeply about. 3mo

I started 2 books at different times last week. Reading about fishing on the Big Blackfoot usually makes me want to re-read another favorite, so I‘m going with tagged book & will read the other book after. Didn‘t read much at the craft festival this weekend-I had friends to talk to & it was extremely hot.

Ericalambbrown I really liked this book. A dad of a childhood friend recommended it and I was so glad he did. The movie wasn‘t bad either. 3mo

Here‘s my #nomakeupnofilter selfie for #BFCr2!

One of the best things I‘ve learned during this round is how much I like getting out in nature & listening to nothing. I had to adjust my book goal accordingly, but it‘s nice to just listen to my breath and Mother Nature!!

I remember loving this book when I read it years ago; the paths Bryson walks along the Appalachian Trail are very similar to what I‘m walking in my own corner of Appalachia!

A funny look at walking the Appalachian Trail which runs for approximately 2200 miles through 14 states. Of course the author doesn‘t walk it all, but what he does is covered in his usual wryly amusing style. 3.5⭐️

This went faster than expected. Another check for my library bingo (travel memoir) and a good boost for this month‘s reading totals.

There were a few irksome qualities in this memoir, but overall I found it very enjoyable and amusing. I can‘t imagine taking on a challenge like the Appalachian Trail, even in chunks. Lots of good side info, too.

Nute I read this with my book club, and I actually enjoyed way more than I thought I would. Even the movie was kinda cute. 5mo

It's been a rainy few days in the mountains so no porch reading this trip, although sitting on the sofa with a beautiful, if wet, view is still pretty great. My dad and I did manage to get a hike in yesterday and this bobsy cat met us in the parking lot and hiked with us for two hours! Super sweet, I would've tried to bring her home but as soon as we got back she followed the next hikers down the trail 😻

valeriegeary What a strange and wonderful encounter. I wonder what that cat's story is. 😺 5mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @valeriegeary me too! Dad and I were worried she was abandoned and was staying close to us to get help, but once she ditched us for the next group I wondered if she lives nearby or is cared for by the rangers and just likes hanging out with hikers. She seemed healthy and happy at least! 5mo

This was a case of expectation vs. reality. I expected a novel full of humorous stories of two men trying to hike the Appalachian Trail. I got a little bit of that, but the rest of the book was facts and interesting tidbits about the areas they were passing through. Don‘t get me wrong, it was great. The humour had me dying, the facts peaked my interest.

It was a fun read. Just not what I expected.

#24in48 Challenge Hour 42: Swiss Army Rec

This is the book I recommend most often, not because it's my absolute favorite (though it is high on my list), but because I think it would appeal to so many people. It reads as easy as fiction, yet it's informative. It's also hilariously funny and engaging. It even got me thinking, for about 3 minutes, that maybe I should hike the Appalachian Trail.

I listened to this at near chipmunk speed just to get through it and cross off challenge prompts. Bryson is cruel in his descriptions of the various people he encounters and I found it both unnecessary and offensive. There are some good nuggets of history and nature commentary, if you can stomach the rest. I want those hours of my life back. Full review on my blog: https://wp.me/pKWKW-5g

jmofo 👏 I‘ve read one of his books and that was enough. I don‘t appreciate his belittling and judgey ways of trying to get a laugh. 12mo
