lol - Bill Bryson is the bee's knees as far as I'm concerned; the man can do no wrong. But I now have to read him in the privacy of my bath as he makes me laugh so much.

I know! All his books are fab. Mother Tongue, his treatise on the english language is absolutely marvellous.

I tried to read bits out loud to dh but I did that stupid thing where you start squeaking and hooting instead of sing actual words because I was laughing so much!

Everything he writes is fab.
I like his science book the best - even it had me laughing out loud as well as learning many useful science related facts.

My fave character in the Thunderbolt Kid is the principal, Mrs Unnaturally Enormous Bosom. My first headmistress was her! And I am well on the way to becoming her myself!
