The SciFri Book Club Takes a Walk

Get ready to trail along with writer Bill Bryson.

The Science Friday Book Club is back from spring break, and ready to get some exercise—or at least read about getting some exercise. This month’s book club pick is A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail,  Bill Bryson’s (reportedly) very funny account of his 1996 hiking trip along the 2,100-mile trail.

Get your copy and get reading. Then break out those four-way stretch, wicking, UV protective, convertible activity pants you’ve been itching to don, and join us for the next on-air book club meeting on May 31, 2013. We want to know what you thought of the book and hear about your experiences on the trail.
