I Got Tagged!

Good thing too, because I just didn't have much else to say today :)

This hails from Andi and it's about books, which is something I love.

Here's how it works:

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.

"'He slipped me a big roll of rupees,'" McCown says, "'and asked me to act like a big boss from America. So I hammed it up. I walked around like a chief, paying everyone their wages, telling them they were doing a great job, and to really throw themselves into it, and finish as fast as they could.'"

This is from page 123 of Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Relin. It's an amazing book about one American who feels the need to build schools for girls in Pakistan. But first, a bridge needs to be built so supplies can be hauled up the mountainside to the school site.

It's a good read for humanitarians, for mountain/rock climbers, or anyone who believes in following dreams, no matter how overwhelming they seem.

For more good reads, just check out my sidebar. Hopefully you won't be able to put them down either!
