April 14, 2011 | My Jottings
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a giveaway here on the blog, so I thought I’d make up for it by making the prize one of the best books I’ve ever read in my life.
If you haven’t read Unbroken, you must! It was recently recommended to me three times before I finally downloaded it to my Kindle because I didn’t want to wait behind the 21 other people on the reserve list at my local library.
Some of the words I’ve read describing this book: soaring, triumphant, unforgettable, gripping, jaw-dropping, incredible…and it’s truly all this, and more.
Laura Hillenbrand has written a stunning book — I’m not normally drawn to books with war settings, but I was assured that this one would not disappoint, and it didn’t. I will read it again and again.
My husband Michael had shoulder replacement surgery two days ago at the Mayo Clinic, so I will be busy doting on him for a while. My next post or three might be fluffy and short. But this book is neither of those.
To enter to win this hardcover book, please leave a comment below and share the title of one of your favorite books. Some of you have done that before, but new titles are always being added to our lists, aren’t they? Comments will be taken until Monday, April 18th at 10:00 a.m. The winner will be picked randomly and announced later that same day.
