At my house, the sign of a really good book is whether or not I feel compelled to update Grant regularly on what's going on in the story. And whether or not I choose to read it during the precious hour of the day called nap time. And whether or not I go around repeatedly saying, "Oh my. This book."
All I can say about Unbroken is: This book. Wow. It's on the verge of unbelievable because of the grandness of the story. I love amazing, true stories that also teach you about American history! Big thanks to my great sister-in-law, Ann, for recommending this book to me. I can barely tear myself away from the thickly-worded, suspense-filled pages. Honestly, I can't believe it has not been made into a movie already. If you guys haven't read it yet, treat yourself.
In other news, today is the last day of the $15 custom blog banner sale! Get 'em while they're hot! And thanks to everyone who has been ordering. You've made the past couple weeks of my lonnnng winter not so long.
