Looked for owner since I thought someone forgot it. Didn't read inside cover until I returned home to Conifer, CO. Intrigued with the concept, I joined. I have read two other Bill Bryson books: "In a Sunburned Country" and "A Walk in the Woods" and loved them both. Looking forward to reading this one and releasing it. Thanks for the gift.”
