Book Nook: Unbroken – Laura Hillenbrand

My favorite book is Peace Like a River by Leif Enger. Whenever I find a copy for sale at a thrift store or used book store for a few dollars, I’ll buy it to lend out or give away.

About a month ago I decided to take 3 of my copies to work in case any of my coworkers were interested in borrowing a copy.

When one of my coworkers expressed interest in borrowing a copy, I asked what her favorite book was. She replied Unbroken, which is a book I’ve had sitting on my bookshelf for a few years. I decided if she was going to read my favorite book then I was going to read her favorite.

Book Nook: The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris

A lot of the books I’ve read recently have had some connection to World War II. Although it may not be everybody’s favorite topic, it can sure be the setting for an emotional book.

I don’t believe that anybody had recommend The Tattooist of Auschwitz to me specifically. Instead, I had probably just heard the title thrown around enough times to get excited when I saw this book on the shelf.

I was more than disappointed to find out partway through the book that it’s basically a Nicholas Sparks book set in a concentration camp.
