Question: Where is what I don't know....The name of the book or the author How what I do know.....The book came out somewhere between 3-8 years ago. It is about a man (I believe who just got out of college) who set out in america with nothing but the shirt on his back or like 100 dollars. He traveled around the country finding odd jobs and meeting new people and turned that 100 bucks into a much larger amount (I believe). The cover of the book if I remeber correctly showed a man with a suitcase or a hobo stick (I believe). I know this is a hard one but hopefully someone knows. I saw him do an interview about years ago when it came out and can't remember what it is. I searched amazon like crazy and can't find it. It is not "Into the wild" It is not "Amazing Adventures of a Nobody"....but I believe it is smilar too this book

What about this one? "Scratch Beginnings: Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream" by Adam W. Shepard http://www.librarything.com/work/4522710 "Shepard's plan was simple. Carrying only a sleeping bag, the clothes on his back, and $25 in cash, and restricted from using previous contacts or relying on his college education, he set out for a randomly selected city with one objective: work his way out of homelessness and into a life that would give him the opportunity for success. His goal was to have, after one year, $2,500, a working automobile, and a furnished apartment."

Stewart Originally Answered: Do you agree or disagree with school using digital book as a text instead of paper book?
I think schools should offer both. I learn better by marking my book. I find that even though I can highlight a book on the screen of my computer, it's not the same.

I think its a great idea. Its able to upload new information. Or, down to the current important information. When I graduated High School in 06, Our History books only went up to Desert Storm. Plus, we all know digital is the way of the future.

I don't know the book you're talking about. However, there are a number of lists out there of books similar to Into the Wild. You might get lucky and stumble on your book among those lists.

Linton Originally Answered: I want to write a book but i dont know what to do first and what kind of book?
My first advice for any writer (which tends to be the advice of published authors) is to write. Write all the time. Read all the time, in and out of your genre. Observe what you like or dislike about books, and why that is so. Don't know how to start a story? Look around you. Sometimes an overheard conversation, or the color of someone's eyes will spark an idea. Even if you don't have a plot, keep writing. Something will pop up eventually. Describe a character and his or her family. Research a topic that interests you. You might find a niche somewhere where you think, that could be a story right there! Don't edit as you write, finish the story and then go back to edit/revise. Don't throw anything away. Ever. No matter how much you dislike it. Always make back-up copies, and don't keep those copies in the same place. Remember that you don't have to -start- with a plot. If you want a challenge to write a book, and have lots of support doing it, join National Novel Writing Month in November. (nanowrimo.org) Good luck!
