#bookreport a day late:
Finished Hope and Other Punchlines on CD in the car; liked it a lot, but started Dry by Shusterman to follow it up instead of Dear Evan Hansen.
Really enjoying Black Enough on audio at home; nice to have short stories since I tend to listen in small chunks at home.
Made good progress on The Gilded Wolves, just a bit left to go.
Tiny progress on Furyborn and didn't get to start I Was Their American Dream yet.

Bk4 of the #WinterGames for #TeamNutcracker is finished. This was a #TBR read that was from #NFNov When you hear about the WTC you hear about the NYPD & FDNY but there were a lot of ordinary people doing brave things that day. Most of the office workers that could be saved were already out of the buildings or well on the way. This book is the story of ordinary people helping each other on the worst day of their life. 16pts+6 #PointsTotal-354

Reviewsbylola Great book but so hard to read. 2w
marleed I watched an episode interview around the first Anniversary for 9/11. A child whose father was killed that day gave a heartbreaking interview I still think about. Her (it could have been a him - that I don‘t recall) father was not a first responder but she was sure he would have been one with the heroes yet she only heard first responders held up as heroes. It still makes me sad to think of how this child felt alone in grief. 1w

Taking a break from the schmaltz for the #WinterGames & finishing this #TBR before the hubby goes to the library for me tomorrow.This book is both heartbreaking & fascinating with a dash of infuriating.Did you know they built the towers with only 3stairwells bunched together compared with the 9 in the EmpireStateBuilding?To make more money with greater office space.That decision cost so many lives that day.😢 #TeamNutcracker 1pt+7 #PointsTotal-330

After taking last week off, I'm back with this week's #WeeklyForecast - I'm still working on The Gilded Wolves and Furyborn in print with I Was Their American Dream up next. Hope and Other Punchlines is my car audio and Black Enough is my everywhere else audio. If I can catch it on the shelf at my library tomorrow, Dear Evan Hansen will be up next in the car.

Still not sold on YA, but the themes that Julie Buxbaum focused on were extremely strong. Very heartfelt.

My next #NFNov read is about another American tragedy, this time in NYC. I‘m already incredulous at the lack of planning, communication between rescuers & the ridiculous decision by the Mayor to put the OEM bunker at the foot of one of the highest profile targets in the country. #TIL-the animosity between the Fire Dept & the NYPD meant that while the Police helicopters could see the extent of the fire, they failed to advise the Fire Chiefs.

#GratefulReads Day 27: Clearly, my #PreferredFormat is the physical version of the book, hardcover or paperback, doesn‘t really matter - so long as I can feel its heft and weight and pages in the palm of my hands. This is just one of the many bookstores I went to. Here‘s more from my book hunting expeditions in the Bay Area: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kIB
