Currently I'm reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I know it's not my usual kids' book, but I'm reading it for one of the book clubs I host at work. It's a great story of Louis Zamperini, Olympic champion, WWII vet, POW survivor, and all around amazing guy.
It's non fiction so if that's your schtick then you'll understand why it's ben on the New York Times bestseller list for years. Nonfiction takes me a long time to read, because I have to look up all the references and then I get distracted learning what an atoll is, for example, and then before I know it, I've spent an hour studying something marginally related to the book.
But oh the knowledge I've gained!
The better news is that the movie of the same title is slated to be released during the holiday season and it looks like a winner. I'm sure I'll drag my family to see it.
So, that's my #FridayReads. Post yours below!
