Read the other books I've been meaning to read.
I already previously posted about my wanting to finally get around to reading my aviation books, but this is another post about wanting to read the other books I've been meaning to read. There are quite a few.
The first is a book I have read possible four or five times already. I love it. By the ever-hilarious and extremely curious Bill Bryson (a man who I would invite to my "Top Ten People To Eat Dinner With" meal in an instant), In A Sunburned Country (otherwise known as Down Under depending on the publication house) reminds me of home every single time I read it. His style of writing captures the essense and truly embodies every character and location he writes about, in all of his books--of which I am a fan of each--which allows me to relive the experiences of Sydney, and the greater Great Brown Land, in such a wonderful way. I started it again this morning, after finding a hard-cover copy of it to add to my collection. Love it as much as ever, if not more considering that my dear Aussie Amigo shall be here in less than 72 hours!
The second and third I haven't begun yet, but they are:
- 1984 by George Orwell
- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth are more books along the similar trains of thought. Each of them promise to be fabulous.
- At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson (yet again. You can never get enough. Truly.)
- Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris (on a recommendation by the lovely B.)
- Babyhood by Paul Reiser
- Lunch In Paris by Elizabeth Bard
Any suggestions for something else I should be reading? If it wasn't already obvious, I love travel and humour.
Read up, readers!
