Freebie Friday book giveaway: Unbroken
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. This week, we're giving away "Unbroken," the latest from Laura Hillenbrand, whom you may remember for the compelling horse racing book about Seabiscuit. Her new book recounts the World War II experience of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic-class runner who served in the Air Force and wound up as a POW in Japan. (Ladies, if you have a husband/boyfriend/son who doesn't read enough -- this is the book for him.)
The New York Times said the book "manages to be as exultant as “Seabiscuit” as it tells a much more harrowing, less heart-warming story." That review also noted that Hillenbrand herself has persevered while being afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Meanwhile congratulations to Dahlink, who won last week's giveaway, "The Emperor of All Maladies" by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
For a chance to win "Unbroken," leave a comment about the reading divide between men and women. Do you think women read more than men? If so, why? And what books would you recommend for a reluctant male reader?
