Since I've been preoccupied with Dana being in India, I've paid attention when people have told me about books they've read on India.
Ingrid has been very enthusiastic about "Shantaram" so I set out to find that one.
Dana herself was told that the quintessential read is "In Spite of the Gods"
There is a fabulous little independent shop in the west end of Ottawa that had both books.
As a result of browsing I also bought "Three Cups of Tea" which I have not read yet this summer, but about which everyone raves.
I have had one message from Dana after landing in New Dehli. She won't have lots of time, but I hope to find a map and stick in pins to follow her voyage. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously.
