Off Into the Wilderness

I went for a hike this morning at the crack of dawn (around 5:40). It was quite frigid. I brought along my current book, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. Most people read this when there in middle school and don't really appreciate it at all; it is kind of sad. Sure it is a really short read at about 100 pages, but the story itself is really well written and wonderfully powerful. I thought it deserved a reread and I was quite right.

On another note, I've kind of been on a Steinbeck binge. I finished up Travels With Charley before Of Mice and Men and now I'm about to read Cannery Row next, unless of course my book comes in the mail (The SCUM Manifesto). Yea, I've read six books so far.
