Before he inspired the world with Hamilton and was catapulted to international fame, Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspiring his Twitter followers with words of encouragement at the beginning and end of each day. He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others. But as Miranda’s audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own. Now Miranda has gathered the best of his daily greetings into a collection. Full of comfort and motivation, Gmorning, Gnight! is a touchstone for anyone who needs a quick lift.

Wasn't a huge fan of Amanda's before this book, but found myself liking her & her music more as I listened to it.
She is a brave person, letting you see her flaws, & all.
Her reading feels like she is in the same room with you. Like a best friend, telling all.
Great advice for all in here, if you have the guts to ask.

But, mostly just a listing of beasts, so a bit dry. Would have been much improved if a paragraph or two of actually encountering the beasts!

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Even after seeing the movie, this kept me spellbound. Narrated well, even with multiple characters of varying gender & ethnicity.
Enough explanation of technical issues to make it understandable, yet not slowing down the story too much.
