Hello fellow readers,
Everyone should have finished chapters 11 - 15 for this week. We had a wonderful discussion today! We all agreed that with every turn of the page there are new and amazing discoveries. At today's discussion we all agreed that Mr Mortenson is one incredible gentleman....he's kind, giving, and extremely humble. There are so many amazing experiences and some take your breathe away.
During Chapter 13 when Mr. Mortenson was taken and held captive for 8 days we were all holding our breathe - not sure if we should keep reading or put the book down. Knowing that this is a true story made it that much more real.
I'm delighted to announce the "Pennies for Peace" collection has started. Each reading participant left with a plastic bottle in hopes of returning it full of pennies for our last reading session on April 28th. One gal guessed each bottle would hold $15 in pennies. We're anxious to find this out. Everyone left with 1 penny in their bottle --- be sure to check in next week for an update on our Pennies for Peace campaign and the joys and new discoveries we are experiencing.
Read chapters 16 - 19 for next week!
Enjoy the journey!
