Loved this book. Loved the minor characters, like the Mexican woman who feeds her kids only rice and beans. When the doctor asks why only that, she says, "What else am I going to feed them?" Love Steinbeck.
Yes, I'm afraid it is, although there are other forms of reading these days. I now read a lot fewer hard copy books, and am reading a lot more E-Books these days. Thanks to the E-book reader my spouse brought for me for Xmas in
