Books - I just love them! I had a week off recently for Spring break and got to finish a couple books that I had started. It's funny, I either read 1 chapter at a time, or read for 3 hours straight! I need to find some balance here!
I'm not so much into non-fiction, but this first book was a surprise hit with me. It's called Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.
I found the accounts of life in the POW camps very interesting, and a totally different perspective than the majority of WWII stories that I have read, which mostly concentrated on the German concentration camps.
It was a great read, and the book ends with Louis participating in the 1998 Nagano Olympic torch relay - oops, I inadvertently told you that he survived the POW camps - it's really a fascinating book!
The other book that I finished was Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.
Finally, in light of recent world events concerning Osama Bin Laden, and the focus on the World Trade Center, I have a book to recommend that was amazing. I read it a few years ago - 102 Minutes: the Untold story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers, by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn.
