  1. “On the Road” and “The Dharma Bums” by Jack Kerouac.. in that order. I’m about to begin reading “Shantaram” .. heard good things 🙂

    1. Sounds like a plan 🙂 will get them on my kindle- I promise 🙂

      Shantaram is my favourite book ever. My boyfriend is listening to the audio book and he is enjoying it too. Thank you for the book names 🙂
