Doubts about "Three Cups of Tea"

Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, non-fiction or fiction? Who knows? But what a shame if this is mostly fiction.

This was a really interesting book; Check out the reading guide. The movie looks like it is going to be a big hit at the box office.

Happening in Waycross, Georgia

I had to share this picture taken last night at the Exchange Club fairgrounds in Waycross at the Relay for Life event in support of the American Cancer Society. There are awesome floating sky lanterns brightening the night in memory of those who lost the battle to cancer. There are luminaries on the ground to honor survivors of cancer and in memory of loved ones.

The Kiwanis Club will be selling South Pit chicken dinners and ribs as a fundraiser so that it can fund organizations devoted to the children in Waycross such as Saddle Up Therapeutic Riding Program, Meagan's House, Head Start and more. Club members will be by the stadium from 11:00am to 6:00pm on Thursday.

Our book club meets this Friday to discuss the historical fiction, Vivaldi's Virgins. Michelle, one of our newest members, has suggested an historical romance for May, A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh.
