Last week I posted some Kindle deals on fitness books. Today, one of my favorite “running” books of all time is on sale, so I felt I needed to post about it!
Technically, this isn’t a running book, but it is an amazing story about an Olympic runner. If you have not read Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, you are missing out.
It is on sale on Kindle for $3.99, so I wanted to let you all know! It’s normally $11.99! Hillenbrand is an amazing writer, and I highly recommend this book.
Here’s the descripton from Amazon: In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
