What book have you read lately?
I am reading two books : Into the Wild written in English, Bad Samaritans written in Korea.
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer is a non-fiction book about the adventures of Christopher McCandless. In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of "Into the Wild.
Bad Samaritans by Jang Hajoon is a book about the myth of free trade and the secret histoy of capitalism.
I am wondering what book you are reading now ???
