The congresswoman and her husband have written a book about her recovery from being shot last January. Her interview with ABC offers the first chance for the public to hear from Giffords directly.

   

For the many Americans who have been following the story of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) as she recovers from being shot in the head last January, there's now a chance to briefly hear her voice.

She feels "pretty good," Giffords has told ABC News' Diane Sawyer, although things are still "difficult."

The network aired reports on Thursday's World News with Diane Sawyer and today's Good Morning America. They include photos and videos of Giffords at various stages of her recovery. ABC is scheduled to have much more on Monday at 10 p.m. ET in a special edition of 20/20.
