Japanese man on one-man mission to distribute books by bicycle

Here's the best story we're posted in weeks! It has something for everyone, bikes, Japan, and books! Kazuhiro Doi is on a one-man mission to change the world by pulling a mobile library on a bicycle around Japan.

For more than two years, the 28-year-old has been distributing books on the environment, civil disputes and other social issues on a custom-made bicycle with a waterwheel-shaped bookshelf across his native Japan, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper reported.
