Isn’t it wonderful being in the middle of a really great book? Part of you wants to hurry up and finish to find out what happens, while the other part just wants to slow down and savor the deliciousness.
I love receiving books as presents, especially if it is one of the giver’s favorites. So let’s band together and come up with a list of terrific books to give this holiday season.
My nomination is Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand.
This book is amazing. Really amazing. The kind of amazing that finds you still reading at 1:00 in the morning because you just can’t put it down. It’s the story of Louis Zamperini, a boy that starts out as a troublemaker, turns into a record-setting runner, enlists as an airman in WWII, survives on a raft in the middle of the ocean, and then endures the horrors of Japanese P.O.W camps. It’s a must read. Give it to someone you love during the holiday season, preferably someone who lives close by so you can borrow it.
Now it’s your turn. Send me the name of a great book you’ve read — whether it’s a recent read or an old favorite — and I’ll create and post a list we can all draw from. Just click on the Send a Waffle button and let me know the title and/or author or just email me directly.
