- A Walk Across America oleh Peter Jenkins
- Spain oleh Jan Morris
- Jim Thompson: The Legendary American of Thailand oleh William Warren
- Berry's Book of Cunning Contraption oleh Roland Berry
Peter Jenkins pula banyak menulis tentang pengembaraan backpackingnya merentasi Amerika. Dia mengingatkan saya kepada Charles Kuralt yang banyak menulis tentang kehidupan seharian rakyat Amerika (sehingga kini saya masih mencari peluang untuk melihat Aurora borealis di Alaska seperti mana yang diceritakannya di dalam buku beliau).

Drbubbles sedang menegotiate nilai hantaran untuk kucing kakteh Snowbella sambil diarbitrate oleh Elviza.Nilai hantaran yang dipertikaikan ialah 2 buah buku GUIT iaitu RM79.80 (sebelum diskaun!)
Kakteh pula memberi hujahnya kenapa nilai hantaran untuk Snowbella mestilah tinggi daripada offer Drbubbles itu.
Akhirnya mengikut pengadilan oleh Elviza, keputusan berpihak kepada Drbubbles menyebabkan kakteh tak mau pandang langsung drbubbles yang senyum lebar itu!

I guess the time we bought, has come to its end. To go back into that world of pain and anguish, I don't think I have the courage to do it (again).

When I was a Boy Scout, we played a game when new Scouts joined the troop. We lined up chairs in a pattern, creating an obstacle course through which the new Scouts, blindfolded, were supposed to maneuver. The Scoutmaster gave them a few moments to study the pattern before our adventure began. But as soon as the victims were blindfolded, the rest of us quietly removed the chairs.
I think life is like this game. Perhaps we spend our lives avoiding obstacles we have created for ourselves and in reality exist only in our minds. We're afraid to apply for that job, take violin lessons, learn a foreign language, call an old friend, write our Congressman - whatever it is that we would really like to do but don't because of personal obstacles.
Don't avoid any chairs until you run smack into one. And if you do, at least you'll have a place to sit down.
