Awesome!! How are you finding A Man Without A Country?

And how did you like Bill Bryson's stuff?

add the books for sure

I breezed through A Man Without a Country and it was enjoyable.

I really like Bill Bryson's humor even though it is more of an old man insightfulness kind of work. His writing cracks me up and I like the unabridged audio books even more.
