I just started a book by Diane Ackerman called The Zookeeper's Wife. A true story, it tells of Antonina Zabinski and her husband Jan, whose Warsaw zoo was bombed during WWII. They ended up saving people from the Nazis by hiding them in the zoo. I don't read a lot of history, as a general rule. But this book caught my eye for a number of reasons, and I find it engrossing so far.
I'm also enjoying India.Arie's new cd. I love (love, love, love) her Testimony: Volume 1 CD, so you can imagine how excited I got about her new one. Her voice is getting sweeter and her songs are still relevant. Good stuff.
