At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson. I enjoy Bryson. I’ve enjoyed several of his books. This ranges from why there button on the sleeves of men’s coats to child labor laws. Good book for reading during distracting times.
Other Bryson books I’ve read:
- A short history of nearly everything
- Shakespeare: The World as Stage
- A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail
- In a Sunburned Country
- The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: A Memoir
- I’m a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America by Erik Larson. I enjoyed the history of the Chicago World’s Fair and plan to read Larson’s latest book “In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin”.
Plugged: A Novel by Eoin Colfer. This was his first book for “adults”, though I enjoyed the Artemis Fowl books even though they were written for a younger audience.
