Recommended Books About September 11

Three books we would like to recommend you read about 9/11 are Let's Roll!--Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage, Homer's Odyssey and Thunder Dog.

Let's Roll--Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage by Lisa Beamer


We read Let's Roll!  Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage by Lisa Beamer one a long time ago around the time it first came out and liked it. It was before we even started writing reviews but here is the book description:
2003 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner!  Let's Roll!—the moving, behind-the-scenes story of United Flight 93 hero Todd Beamer and his widow, Lisa—is so much more than a tribute. A message of character, courage, and undeniable faith in the face of horrifying tragedy, it encourages anyone who reads it to live real life right now . . . and to have confidence and hope for the future.

Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper


One book about September 11 that both of us really enjoyed is Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper (this link will take you to our reviews of it.)  It's about a New Yorker who was separated for days when the terrorist attack happened on 9/11 from her three cats, one of which was Homer--an eyeless kitten with a big brave heart. You can visit www.gwencooper.com to hear the author and actually see Homer in action!

Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson

We have not read Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson but have requested it from the library based on reviews I've seen about it. Here is the book trailer for it:







Here are several links to bloggers who have reviewed it: Life With Katie, Ramblings of a Christian Mom and Army Wife.

Have you read this one? What did you think of it?
