Just back from a trip to Monterey with Ms. Aymz for her birthday and we decided last minute to hit Salinas and the John Steinbeck Museum. If you should ever find yourself in the vicinity of this great institution PLEASE do yourself (and whoever you’re with) a favor and drop in for a visit.
John Steinbeck’s work is partially responsible for my love of reading and writing. I remember first reading Tortilla Flat in early high school and fell in love with it. Since then, I’ve managed to read almost all of Steinbeck’s work and have re-read some of them as well. Needless to say, many more authors were discovered through high school and beyond as I was happily swept away by it all.
So, get your eyes off of your phone and go to your library, or the public “little libraries” that are popping up in neighborhoods in front of folks houses and read more books!
