Bill_Bryson_A_Walk_In_The_WoodsOne of my favorite books ever is Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods. I’m not sure how many times I have read it – at least 10. I reread it every summer.  

It is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I laugh aloud when I am reading this.

The book is about hiking the Appalachian Trail. But it is more than just Bryson recounting what happen while he was hiking. He provides a great deal of information about the history of the trail and the American wildness. 

This book is also great to listen to during car trips. My mom and I listened to it a few years ago while driving to the beach.

the way life should beI have been searching for a good summer book this year, and I finally found one. 

“The Way Life Should Be” is a story about a woman whose life falls apart, and she takes some risks to change her life. Life doesn’t end up working out the way she thinks it will, but in the end, she is happy. 

I read the book in two days, and it was a great read. It wasn’t too thought provoking or heavy, but realistic enough to make me care about the main character – that is what qualifies it as a great summer book for me.
