Subject: Re: Books by Travel Writers
These book threads are always among my favorites. For some reason, this particular one made me remember the first travel book I ever read: Cornelia Otis Skinner's Our Hearts Were Young and Gay. I'm not recommending it, as I haven't read it since I was a young girl, but I do remember as a sweet evocation of times past, and probably one of the things that inspired my own love of travel.

Anyone else ever read this one? Reading this book is a fond late childhood memory of mine, and I don't think I ever met anyone else who is familiar with it.

And while we're on the subject, Mary McCarthy's travel books are always highly recommended, but I haven't read them myself. I think I will , though.

Met Bill Bryson at the Travel Writer's Conference two years ago. He gave a hilarious reading from Notes From a Small Island. Probably already mentioned that, though. Sorry if I'm repeating myself.

And my library found George MacDonald's England, England for me. I'm picking it up tomorrow. Thanks to Cyndi, and I'll let you know how I enjoyed it.

Keep reading, Debbie
