I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.

Library Love: Unbroken

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand

Just got an e-mail from the Public Library that my requested reservation of Laura Hillenbrand's "Unbroken" has come in. I have been meaning to read this since it came out, and the forthcoming film has made the issue pressing. Apparently, others in my community have had the same thought.


Now, to get to the library before they close tonight, as they will be closed entirely the next two days for the holiday. I'm not arguing with holiday closures, and I certainly don't make it to the library every second day, but I do get a little bit twitchy at the very thought of no library access for two whole days. Let's not talk about it. ;)
