  1. Hi Bobbie,
    This is a great list! I read 3 cups of tea years ago, (this spoiler isn't about the book, just the aftermath) and sadly much of the story ended up being untrue, there was a big scandal, and his co-author even killed himself. Mr Mortenson is trying to make amends now --the Washington Post has a good article about that here:

    I only mention this because I remember how hurt I felt after getting behind his story. There is still a lot of good in the world, and the book is an uplifting read, I just wanted to let you know (I hope this isn't too forward!)
