Imagine Bill Bryson wrote an intro to running book...

What's a good introduction to running book? I'd prefer a quick read, not too technical, humorous but not insulting. Something that starts with the basics (shoes, feet, clothing) and goes on to talk about things like all weather running and maybe even the basics of marathon training.

I know I probably just described The Dummies Guide To Running but I'm looking for other options.
I just finished Couch to 5K and I'm looking to maybe continue and/or take things a bit further. I have no plans to turn into Bill Rogers or Superman and the book should reflect that. Running for the Mostly Lazy, or something like that.
I'm looking for more practical advice rather than training schedules. There are plenty of apps for schedules.
Bonus if they have a Kindle version.
