Reading more is one of my action items for the year. Listening to books counts too, I have found audio books to be a great distraction from the horrid boredom on the treadmill. Really my ultimate goal is to reduce my screen time (laptop, BlackBerry, TV).
Usually I have a long list of books I want to read but when I finished up my stockpile I was struggling to put a new list together. Luckily a few friends formed a monthly book club so I had the January book selection to get me started. In the end I did manage to get a few books knocked out.
|Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
by Laura HillenbrandThis is a book I would have never picked up to read, it was our January book club book. It is such a great book, a truly unbelievable story of surviving.
|Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf
by Edward Albee
I have never seen this movie and know nothing about the story. I mentioned to my parents we were going to see the play , dad just so happened to have a copy and lent it to me. I am glad I did, I think it will make seeing the play a better experience.
|Room: A Novel
by Emma Donoghue
My first library audio book check out! This was a great selection for it since the majority of the story is told from the perspective of a five year-old boy who has lived his entire life in one tiny room. An intense but enjoyable listen.
