I bought Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand for my husband for Christmas.  He finished reading it a few days ago and said it was excellent.

My daughter’s gift to me:  Collected Stories by William Trevor.

Happy New Year!

  1. You sound like me – I buy books for my husband that I think I’ll enjoy too. I gave mine The Autobiography of Mark Twain for Christmas. Happy New Year, Mary!


    • I may read it eventually but T is a fan of WWII (and others) books and his dad served in the Pacific on an LST so the story has special meaning to him.
      Happy New Year, Kathy.


    • I’m glad you’re liking it, Lynne. T said he had to put it down once in a while because some things were pretty difficult to read. But, in the end, he thought it was a great read.


  2. Mary, you are the second person that said Unbroken was so good. John went to Borders on Friday and used my $10 Border Bucks and bought it. He is reading it now and loving it!


  3. I’ve been wondering about Unbroken. Are you going to read it? If so I’ll wait and see what you think. Hope you’re having a great Sunday!


  4. Wow think of it that’s genius. First hubby reads then you get to read the book you’ve always wanted. I don’t think my husband would care for my guilty pleasures of historical romances… will tell him that their worth it. Wish me luck.

    You daughter found a perfect book for the holidays and I’ll be back to hear your thoughts on it.

    Enjoy the reads and let me know when you’ve started Unbroken next.


  5. I’ve heard lots of terrific things about Unbroken. I would like to read it and Seabiscuit someday.

    PS I joined the War and Peace Challenge thanks to your post.

    Happy New Year Mary!


    • Oh, that’s great! I’ve always thought about reading W&P but never had the nerve until Jillian made it sound like a no-brainer, LOL. Chapter a day = brilliant 😉


  6. I almost bought Unbroken when I was at the bookstore the other day. It seems like everyone who has read it has really enjoyed it. I was intrigued by an article I read in the NY Times about the author who suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and didn’t leave her house to do publicity for the book. The book is definitely on my list to read in 2011!
