Devouring The Grapes of Wrath

Serendipitously I found out that John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath had been published 70 years ago.

The first Steinbeck I'd ever read was In Dubious Battle. The book was given to me by Tigresa some years back. A brutal yet passionate book. I then bough this copy of The Grapes of Wrath, but did not start reading it until today. This spring I devoured East of Eden. It somehow felt like swimming in a river. So, I'm really looking forward to this book.

Stay passionate and Godspeed!

How could I forget to mention this. East of Eden was a present by the lovely Ms.Mac :) It looks like I really had to be shoved into Steinbeck.

East of Eden is one of my favourite books, like, evah!

I think I will have to have a wee read of Grapes of Wrath now-.
