Buddha-Killing on Network TV

My good husband brought this to my attention. In this recent episode of Fringe, Pacey from Dawson’s Creek gives the book If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him! to the Nordicly blond FBI agent he works with on supernatural cases, and, apparently, does not have sex with for some stupid TV-reason. You can see the book in this scene and hear Pacey describe why it’s his favorite book. Then Pacey washes down some pills with a big old-timey bottle of cow’s milk which you know isn’t going to turn out well. Who does that? Anyway, Pacey? Call me. I have some other books you will dig. Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Toward a Psychology of Being, and The Hero With a Thousand Faces amongst them. Get ready to have your mind blown, O Friend of Dawson.

Turns out, that despite the fake-looking cover, IYMBRKM! is an actual book, and one that might be right at home on my Eternal Bookshelf, but there’s only so much reading one lady can do. Tell you what. If I happen to come across it serendipitously, I will read it. Otherwise, I will be satisfied with the comments listed on Amazon, which tell me, I think, all I need to know.
