Dharma Bums

Posted to What Are You Reading?

First I read On The Road. Loved it. Read it again about a year later. Then, I went out and bought Dharma Bums. Unfortunately, I can't remember that much about it.

I remember the part where he got a milkshake because, he says, he knew it would be good for him, and I remember thinking, those were the good days, when a milkshake was actually good for you because it had plenty of real milk in it.

I also remember the part about "You can't fall off the side of a mountain".

And I remember Jack talking to some kid as he "smoked his wise pipe..."

I should probably read it again.
