First let me say that I do not read books. But Charity let me borrow Hitching Rides with Buddha by Will Ferguson (also called Hokkaido Highway Blues) and after just the first couple of pages I was hooked. This true story is about Will as he hitchhikes through Japan following the cherry blossoms one spring. If I were to write a book it would turn out like this -if I was funny, witty, and a good wordsmith, all of which I am not, atleast compared to Will Ferguson. The book is very funny one page and very insightful the next, with glimpses about the truth of himself and Japan throughout the book. Now, I don't really read books, but I do suggest this book to everyone, even those of us who don't read books. Not many things make me laugh out loud (LOL for you younglings); I did many times with this book.
(Thanks Charity for letting me barrow it!)
