I'm so excited, I have to blog about it. Today two of my favorite authors announced they have new books coming out this fall. And another favorite of mine just dropped the latest in a fast-paced serial which has "next weekend's read" all over it.

For Bill Bryson fans, Mr. Bryson can do no wrong. And you'd better believe I'm a Bill Bryson fan. His travel stories are the perfect blend of grouchy internal monologue and "oops did I say that aloud" less-than-internal monologues.
