I finished Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath yesterday afternoon (wiki link). It is about a family of migrant workers during the great depression. It was kind of a depressing book too. But good. I like Steinbeck's books. As I've mentioned before, I started reading one of his books on every vacation each year. Next is East of Eden.
It was kind of funny, when I got to the end of the book I had this weird feeling that I'd read this book before. Maybe I read it in high school and had forgot. I swear I remember the ending.
Anyway, I'm glad I read it; and glad Jane got it for me. It felt good to read a 455 page book. Like I almost accomplished something.
