I keep meaning to mention this book, Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson. Tiffany gave it to me & I read it over Christmas. It is a fantastic book. I think it's something everyone should read. It's available in paperback & it's a quick read, so there's really no excuse. I'll even provide an Amazon link for those of you that want to buy it:
Seriously, it's that good. Do yourself a favor & READ THIS BOOK.
