Day 12 – A book you used to love but don’t anymore
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
It was a struggle to really find a book that fit this description. When I first read this book, I was inspired. The story was captivating, and I was so swept up in the work that the Central Asia Institute was doing to educate girls and women in Afghanistan. Education for women is still very important to me, but I was frustrated at hearing that some of the book was falsified. Even more frustrating was the issue that funds going to the organization were not being used as intended by the donors. I don’t think I could love this book anymore, which is sad.
Have you been disappointed by the true events surrounding a book that you’ve read?
