unbroken by laura hillenbrand is quality literature. it turned out to not be too much about survival on the ocean as i assumed. it also was not solely about overcoming, although it was definitely that. the thought that stood out most to me was fear . . . how fear destroys the lives of men and nations . . . and how it can change us from who we are to a people we do not recognize. it's something to think about in our current political climate.
and this leaves my grand total for 2015 at 27. not 52, but not too shabby. on to 2016!
