This week, I finished reading about vegan nutrition and started another nonfiction book called Unbroken. Over Christmas, my MIL recommended it to me and then I read another encouraging review of it here. So I put it on hold at the library and was finally able to pick it up earlier this week.
I'm not terribly far into it, but I already think it's really well written and engaging. The preface is two pages long and after I read it, I was hooked. The author is such an amazing storyteller - and from what I gather, this is a really wonderful story to be told. It's about the incredible life of an Olympic runner and WWII vet named Louie. And in addition to loving the book itself, I also love that he and my dog share their name. Bonus points there.
I'm still trucking along on my cardigan. I had to rip out the entire left side after it was almost completely finished. I wasn't paying attention and missed a cable - but in my defense, I was watching the most recent episode of Downton Abbey, which put my in a state of emotional turmoil and kept me from focusing on what I was doing. Did any of you see it?
