Two books I want to read

I have discovered two books online that I would like to read.

One is an account I read on Facebook of the actions of the kind and generous citizens of Gander, Newfoundland, Canada, on September 11, 2001. Airplanes from all over the world were landing at their airport, and travelers were temporarily stranded for several days, as there were no flights into or out of the United States following the attacks.
The Day the World Came to Town

The other is from an article in The History Blog about Emily Post, When Emily Post Drove From Sea to Shining Sea .

The book is By Motor to the Golden Gate . It is available online only; it has been digitized.


  1. The Day the World Came to Town sounds like an interesting book to read for sure!! I hope you have a chance to read it soon as I look forward to reading your review about The Day the World Came to Town!

    1. I asked to join a BC bookring, but it seems to be stalled. I have asked on the RABCK and the Bookrays and Bookrings forums. I may end up buying it on Amazon -- I do want to read it!
      Don't worry; I will post a review when I do get to read it!
