Notes from a Small Island

I'm lost! Please hand me a road map! I just could not get into the travelogue memoirs of Bill Bryson in his recommended and notable book Notes from a Small Island. I read the first seven chapters (approximately 80 pages) and felt more lost than Bryson did when he first landed in England. I'm sorry, but I barely remember what I read. What I do remember is that he was revisiting his original travels in England. I also remember a lot of dialogue about roads, hotels, food, and weather. That's about it. I found the book uninteresting and a bit rambling for my tastes.

I am listing Notes from a Small Island as a DNF for this challenge. I will choose an alternate selection later in the month to replace this book.
