TUESDAY, January 27th at 7PM: More from A WALK IN THE WOODS

''A Walk in the Woods'' isn't necessarily a book that makes you want to start packing for your own 2,100-mile jaunt. Bryson and his traveling companion  . . .  Bryson writes: ''Every bend in the path presents a prospect indistinguishable from every other, every glimpse into the trees the same tangled mass. For all you know, your route could describe a very large, pointless circle.''

"Bryson's book is anything but a pointless circle. Once he and Katz have hit their stride, there are countless fine moments on the unexpected joys of deprivation and the possible threats from bears, hypothermia and the often spooky (think ''Deliverance'') strangers they meet along the way."

~ Christopher Lehmann-Haupt of the New York Times in "Thinking on His Feet"
