The logical next step after doing an audio book guide is of course to suggest some actual books. My taste might be somewhat overly Science Fiction based, so to start things off I’m going to suggest a book that has nothing to do with Science Fiction whatsoever.
“I’m a stranger here myself” is about Bill Bryson’s return to America after 20 years living in Britain. The country has changed a lot in that time, and the book goes through the changes that has occurred- from the author’s point of view. The book is a curious mix of a diary, anecdotes and witty humor all mixed up in a book that will definitely make you laugh. From the deserted main streets caused by Americans’ lack of will to walk to the annoyances you have to go through to get through an airport (even 10 years ago), anyone is sure to recognize aspects of American life described in the book.
If you want to check out the book, Audible is a good choice and where I get all my books. If you’re not a member, I can recommend their “new user” promotion which gives you 3 months of the gold membership for $7.49 per month. I started out with that promotion and eventually moved on to the platinum plan. It’s a nice cheap way to try the service.
