Oh good! I hope you enjoy In a Sunburned Country! And I don't think I ever answered your question about A Walk in the Woods (sadly responding to comments is one of the things that's had to go lately...wahhhh). My bookclub found it terribly boring and not funny. I think they would have enjoyed it a little more going in with different expectations. One member couldn't understand why anyone would ever be interested in reading about someone's experiences hiking the AT. Oh well. ;)

So many Christopher Milne books! You have me curious after reading your post about him.

I can see how people would find that book dry? especially if they're not into hiking or outdoorsy stuff. There were enough chuckles in it to keep me happy.

I'm curious too- to read more about his life! Especially the period when he ran a bookshop- that's in the second volume of the trilogy.

I've heard Karen Joy Fowler book is pretty good. I meant to put it on my own TBR list but seem to have forgotten so thanks for the reminder!
