I'm a Bill Bryson fan. I like the way he writes and I find the stuff he writes about interesting. His travel books are my favorite, but I've also learned a lot from his nonfiction, like his biography of Shakespeare and his exploration of the English language. He's smart and we seem to have the same interests.
So there's really no way to get around the fact that I'll be reading his new book, At Home: A Short History of Private Life. Bryson? Check. Anthropology? Check. History? Check. Architecture? Check.
Like it was written for me.
