Two kinds of Book Tag

1) I'm applying toothpaste to Mr. Baseball's new toothbrush (the maintenance guys had to haul our toilet out to the front lawn to retrieve the last one!) when he runs in to tell me he threw a book in the Monkey's face and the Monkey laughed. Hmm... brotherly love? At least he's honest about it.

2) Shiloh tagged us, but not in the face.
It just so happens I'm reading an excellent book called Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. The book was in my lap when I read your post Shiloh! It made me laugh.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (with at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag 3 people.

Here it is then:
' "He slipped me a bill 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." '

I think this book has hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List (nonfiction paperback) and I'm thrilled, I think it's a great book about a great cause and I hope more people read it.

I tag Brooke, the Buchanans, and Mom Fitzgerald/Nana

woo hoo! I've never been tagged for anything, I'm so excited! :) Never heard of that book, but the small clip I just read sounds funny. Check out my blog for my tag. :)

That sounds like an excellent book-- just from those three sentences!
