Read the book. I think you'll like it. In fact, I know you'll like it.

I'm reading a great book called Unbroken that's a true WW2 story about a guy who's bomber crashed in the Pacific Ocean and he then survived 30 days in a raft and then survived being in a Japanese POW camp.

Right now I'm in the middle and the guy is being beaten and starved in the POW camp.

I guess it's helping me put the Craptors' meltdown in perspective. Don't like the Craptor show? Turn the channel.

I'm reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens for school. I understand why he's a well respected writer but this book has some dry parts.

Right now reading In the Garden of Beasts. Interesting perspective. I don't mind reading Larson's popular narrative history. Better than most.

Currently re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire series. Just finished the Great Gatsby beforehand, and I wasn't really a fan. I guess it's just not really what I'm in to.

Ya Unbroken was great.

Now I'm reading "The Future" by Al Gore. It's helping me put together the pieces on what's happening with the world right now but it is a chore to read.
