I'm a little more than halfway through Rage by Bob Woodward. It's very well written and researched, but due to the subject-matter I can only take it in small doses. :cringe:

Anyone calling it a "liberal hit job" either has not actually read it or is somebody whose judgment you really shouldn't put any stock in, or both. His own words and actions show that the "leader of the free world" is a far sicker and more dangerous individual than his niece's book painted him.

I'm going to start Home Before Dark by Riley Sager. I began reading it on Fire but I'll
read the hard copy on deck.

I've started "Disloyal," finally it's been sitting here for several days while I finished other books that were more pressing (book clubs and such). I'm about 1/4 in, and it's...eye-opening. Mr. Cohen doesn't try to justify anything, nor does he make excuses, and I give him credit for that. He has a LOT of atoning to do. I only hope that he is serious about doing so. I'm willing to actually give him a chance, but will be watching him like a hawk.

I'll be ordering "Rage" when I get my check in October. I could save a bit ordering on Kindle, but I have 4 people here in my complex who want to borrow it, and I'd rather risk a hard copy than my reader!

Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria by Rahma Krambo
Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria
When the Library of Alexandria was reduced to ashes by men who feared the power of words and ideas, Akeel, the Master Librarian risked his life to save a handful of rare mystical books. To protect them from falling into the hands of those who would destroy or misuse them, Akeel appointed the library cats, the very ones who followed him out of the burning building, to guard the ancient books of power. Centuries later, successors of these literary felines faithfully remain at their posts.
This is the story of two cats, one elder Guardian, painfully aware his days are numbered-- troubled he’s not found a worthy heir. And Marco, an intrepid young house cat out on his own for the first time, who finds refuge in the public library.
A contemporary setting with a trip back in time to the Library of Alexandria, this is a tale of an unlikely hero who faces very human dilemmas and insurmountable odds.

I've started "Disloyal,"
I'm also reading Disloyal. It's on Hoopla so no hold or wait time to get it. Also about 1/4 way in. A lot of the info in the book is similar to other things I've read, except Michael Cohen admits to his part in all of it.

Oh... I remember reading this book, years ago. I really loved it.. I forget the plt, but it was remembered as a good book. Sorry you were disappointed with it.
A lot of people on Goodreads loved it. I wish I liked it more... I guess I'm too picky.
