Here is a book that you will be lucky to read.....it is so good! Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson.
It is another example of non-fiction that is as gripping as any novel you have ever read. Briefly, this is the story of two divers who discovered a WWII German submarine closer to America than you would ever believe. Definitely a must read. Go get it!!!!
I am thinking of great non-fiction because I finished Nothing to Envy:Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick.
It was an amazing book. I could not stop reading it. I fell in love with the people who the author wrote about. Oh my goodness, I cannot believe that a country would treat its citizens like that. And it is still going on. My eyes have been opened to another part of the world that is tragic. Most of these people cannot even get up and go to the kitchen and get a piece of bread. They are out scavenging for weeds to eat. In this time of tragedy in Haiti where life is very similar in quality to North Korea I feel helpless. I am hoping to find some way that I can make just a small difference because the problems in these countries are seemingly endless.
