What is on your nightstand?
Fifteen Days: Stories of Bravery, Friendship, Life and Death from Inside the New Canadian Army by Christie Blatchford. I lived up in Canada for many years. She's a Canadian journalist.
Did you enjoy her book as much as her columns?
Yes. It was about her time spent in Afghanistan. She is definitely a gutsy woman.
