A Walk in The Woods

I want things to be better all the time.
And I tend to get angry about that.
Books are an opportunity to vent.

Bill Bryson

A Walk in The Woods

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve read a variety of books. I’m proud to say, I’ve read 65 books to date. They range from celebrity biographies to 100-year-old classics.

So it’s rare that I find a book to read that is laugh-out-loud funny, inspirational and educational all rolled into one. A Walk in the Woods is one of those rare books.

Bill Bryson’s 1998 book, A Walk in the Woods, which was made into a movie and will be released September 2nd, is a story about Bill Bryson’s quest to hike the Appalachian Trail.

The book has all the subjects and details I find interesting. It’s packed with history, nature and science with details about the hiking trails in the eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine.

What I enjoyed the most about this book was Bryson’s sense of humor. This book was highly entertaining, and is a great read for all ages and walks of life who have ever hiked or simply enjoy a walk in the woods.

  1. This sounds like a great book, and hopefully a great movie, too. You’ve read 65 books this year? That is amazing! I’ve read mostly biographies of my favorite recording artists and/or books on how famous albums were created.
