We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Young Family, a Broken Down Zoo, and the 200 Wild Animals That Changed Their Lives Forever by Benjamin Mee
We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Young Family, a Broken Down Zoo, and the 200 Wild Animals That Changed Their Lives Forever

awalla, January 1, 2012

Rarely does a story such as this come to the attention of so many people. True, its not every day that someone buys a zoo, but whether it's a zoo, an old movie theater, or an old storefront for which you always had the dream of creating a used book store, Benjamin Mee's story is about having a wild and crazy dream and seeing it come true despite all of the trials and major heartbreak along the way. Even after reading the story, its amazing to me that he and his partners and employees actually pulled it off - they actually bought, refurbished, and opened a zoo to great success. A thrilling story and the best book I read in 2011.

Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof
Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

Heart-wrenching and inspiring. I was stricken by the women's stories yet couldn't put it down. A most memorable book from 2010.
