Are you a history buff? Especially World War II history? If so, I have a book I would like to recommend. It's called "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand.
It's about a man named Louis Zamperini who was an olympic runner. When WWII broke out, he joined the Army Air Corps. The book tells of his early running days, his duty in the AAC and his subsequent capture and detention in a Japanese prisoner of war camp.
The book is one of the best historical narratives I've ever read. It may be out in paperback and it's also available for eReaders.
