Five top books on home life

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five notable books on home life:
At Home
by Bill Bryson

The author of the charmingly comprehensive A Short History of Everything here focuses on the objects that fill his own home, giving readers a tour of the place and sharing a small piece of compelling information about every item he comes across. For Bryson, our homes are autobiographies we write every day, journals we keep by acquiring, enduring, and loving. After reading this, no old house will ever seem ordinary; At Home shows how our dwellings are links of commonality that connect us to one another. Mi casa es su casa.
