The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World da A.J. Jacobs
Just for the heck of it, one giorno A.J. Jacobs decided to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, all thirty-two volumes. Surprisingly his details about his adventure is quite amusing and he does share some very interesting tidbits from the EB. o as Jon Stewart says: "The Know-It-All is a hilarious book and quite impressive achievement. I've always said, why doesn't someone put out a less complete version of the encyclopedia? Well done, A.J."

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away da link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in Amore with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...

My Life in France da Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
You must know Julia Child da name if not da reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the home da TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can te belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the cucina before moving to France and attended cooking...
