"Many people, myself among them,
feel better at the mere sight of a book."
~ Jane Smiley, Thirteen Way of Looking at a Novel
After spending a few days in Monterey, I decided to reread Cannery Row . . . which I am enjoying so much that I decided to go on a John Steinbeck binge. I stopped in the used bookstore yesterday and picked these up for $3 - $4 each. Most of them I read years ago, but there are a couple that I am looking forward to reading for the first time. This beats a Netflix binge any day!
". . . perhaps that might be the way to write this book -
to open the page and to let the stories crawl by themselves."
~ John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
