Back in the day…


At Home by Bill Bryson and The Year 1000 by Robert Lacey both take the reader on a fun journey through the everyday life of years past. At Home uses the house as a jumping off point to discuss the idiosyncrasies of daily life. Byrson has a hilarious way of informing the reader of even the most mundane feature of history. The Year 1000 uses the calendar as a jumping off point to do the same. If you like fun factoids about how things came to be, such as saying, traditions, inventions, etc. these will certainly tickle your fancy.
