On the Shelf

February 4, 2018

I’m a sucker for classic sci-fi, so I decided to finally get around to reading The War of the Worlds.  It’s great period speculative fiction and you can tell when it was written, but the story-telling is phenomenal.

And second, I love Bill Bryson’s devil-may-care, idiosyncratic story-telling style.  I read his Into the Woods after hiking part of the Appalachian Trail and picked up his review of Europe on my way to Austria last year.
