book tag

I got tagged by Lindsay :)

The rules of the game:
1. Find the nearest book to you.
2. Name the book and author.
3. Turn to page 123.
4. Go to the fifth sentence on the page.
5. Copy out the next 3 sentences and post to your blog.
6. Tag three other people.

Book: The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11

Author: Lawrence Wright

"The heresy of takfir, or excommunication, has been a problem in Islam since its early days. In the mid seventh century a group known as the Kharijites revolted against the rule of Ali, the fourth caliph. The particular issue that triggered their rebellion was Ali's decision to compromise with a political opponent rather than to wage a fratricidal war."

Rob borrowed this book from a co-worker and I read it and now he is reading it. It sounds dry I guess, but is REALLY interesting.

So I guess I'm supposed to "tag" 3 people now... I choose Felicity, Tiffany and my mom.

Hey Julie! I have your Pampered Chef stuff at my house. When would be a good time to get together to give it to you? I can come there, or if you are going to be down this way soon, you could stop by and get it. Let me know what works best for you!
