Bill Bryson

Got this as an unexpected gift from Jan. Thanks!

How has our home developed to be what it is today? Bill Bryson packs many interesting stories into one book.

When he says "home", he means all rooms but also the garden. The garden will also have stories about parks, because those preceded what we today like about gardens. Furniture is in homes, too. And sleeping and dying happens there. All of this changed over time, so Bryson can talk about it.

It reads really well sometimes, it depends if you're into the current tidbit. I have the feeling Bryson had a lot of interesting stories lying around from research into his previous books which fit no other theme. And I'm fine with it. A good book to read.
