Have you read "A Walk in the Woods"?
We hope you read or perhaps reread A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, our 2015 Everyone is Reading selection. We love this book not only because it makes us laugh, but because it is well written and we always learn something new when Bryson is telling the story. Consider downloading the audiobook. Bryson is the narrator. Need we say more?
