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.
