1. Picked up
3. Found first five
"I did not see how this was possible but did not challenge Ali's claim. If anything, I encouraged him to increase his boasting as the pool shot up to positively astronomical sums. A kind of fever gripped the division."
from "Matches" by Alan Kaufman, from the McNeil Island Corrections Center Library branch.
5. Tag five people, sigh, I am not that kind of a guy - I could in good conscience recommend the book to those thinking about military life, the Israeli-Arab question and where are all the good men gone. But I hardly know five people on the internet to tag. But here are five that would benefit from the reading: Toy Soldier, Ka-BOOM!, Iraq: The Purgatorium, Rogue Gunner, They should have asked. A finer bunch of people would be difficult to find and they have their own reading and writing to do. Anyone else thinking this is a good thing may hop on and blame Breda for trying to make me a joiner... time to go get some fighting knives to save, sharpen and shoot.
