I won't hide it, I love this author and have for years.
It started with this book:


He is from Iowa. I am from Idaho, but most people get
Idaho and Iowa confused; so I claim both.
While I'm at it, I'll claim Bill as my brother. 
I can always say I confused him with my other brother, Blake.

And who could forget these beauties:





But nothing prepared me for 
what I found at the library today.


For Children! That wasn't an earthquake you felt 
on Tuesday; it was me doing hand springs all
the way home with this bad boy. Trust me,
everything is in here. Pairing Bill's sense of humor
and masterful storytelling with science is genius.
 Well, my 3rd grade daughter was walking up
 the wall again, but she didn't leave.
My 5th grader was glued on every word and picture. 

Sigh. That's my big brother Bill. From Idaho.
Have I been struck by lightning?
No. Just the library. 

Which Bill Bryson book is your favorite?
