Free Book "Long Way Down"

This is a book about the journey that Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman took from Scotland to South Africa by motorcycle. At the beginning of the journey they make a stop at CHAS "Childrens Hospice Association of Scotland" http://www.chas.org.uk/
The chapter of their visit brought back memories of our own situation with our son at Shriners Hospital when he was young, though not life threatening, but traumatic all the same and we met many a child and parents with great courage with tough medical decisions. It always amazed me how happy and strong these kids are while parents are wrenching their own hearts out but not letting on.

I'm giving away five copies of this book, a $26.95 value each, and if you donate something to the charity to help raise their goal of 1 million Pounds or $1.96900 Us dollars, all the better but not required.

To get a copy of the book all you have to do is be one of the first five people to correctly guess how many books and as many of the titles are of the books in the background of the above picture.

I watched the documentary on disk, but haven't read the book.

As far as the documentary went I like Long Way Round better. It didn't feel as commercial - if that makes any sense.

Good on your for raising money for charity too.

"It didn't feel as commercial"
Yes, that makes sense but I enjoy videos I find like this. They can help me sort out when I do my own.

Thanks for the charity comment.

This was a good show. For some reason, I went over to the site and cannot get in. I checked my browser settings too.
