The lack of concern and the outright duplicity in the part of the Radium Companies and their management was shocking. At times, I was so angry I found myself pacing around my apartment while at other times, the women‘s suffering and the thought of the lives they might have led brought me to tears. I do wish there wasn‘t so much flipping back and forth between the women‘s stories. Heartbreaking story. #2018NFBE

The first of my #nfbe #2018nfbe books - thank you @Smarkies ! I pulled this off the shelf while looking for something earlier and ended up reading it cover-to-cover in one sitting.

Written by a 13-yr-old Japanese boy with autism, this is a beautiful description of how he experiences his world, and a plea for understanding. Fascinating, eye-opening, in parts heartbreaking, and highly recommended.

Thanks to @Christine11 for my #2018NFBE box. Puts my own lack of wrapping to shame, too. But it's all about the books. And thanks to @inwhichHeikereadsharder for organising the exchange!

Reviewsbylola The Summerscale is fantastic!! 2y
Christine11 You‘re welcome 😊 I‘m glad it arrived safely! I really hope you like it all! 🌸 2y
heikemarie Is that a bookmark in the lower left? I like it!! It was my pleasure! 2y
LornaDH @Chrissyreadit @inwhichHeikereadsharder - I could not track it. It left my house and all I have is the receipt. I can resend the books through amazon once I get back to my computer, but I'm not at home til later. 💜 2y

@mgiroir Yay! Such a nice treat to come home too! 💕 The coffee ☕️ smells delicious! I just kept inhaling it. The mug is super nice too. Is this a favorite coffee place of yours? I can‘t wait to try it. You get ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for the protective wrapping (I might have laughed some as I unwrapped the mug 😂). I am super excited about the books. I‘ve really been wanting to read Radium Girls, especially since I saw a documentary on it. #2018NFBE

mgiroir Yay!!!! The coffee shop I got the coffee at makes amazing coffee!!! It‘s a little local shop near my house! I‘m glad everything got to you safely! Enjoy!! 2y

heikemarie So cool to have a local mug like that! 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks @EKonrad I don‘t know what the name of the one I watched (I feel like it was a part of a series) When I was looking for the name, though, I found a documentary on it called Radium City. It has a 8.9/10 rating on IMDb 2y
EKonrad Ooh thanks!! 2y
