keeping up

Not with the Kardashians but with my New Year's resolution. I've been busy this January reading, reading, and... reading!

I finished East of Eden by John Steinbeck, which has become one of my favorite books. It's difficult to read a book that has been admired over and over again. You tend to set high expectations for the book without even turning the first page. Happily enough, East of Eden exceeded my expectations as I got further and further into it. I was glad this book had 601 pages, just more to read from John Steinbeck. The characters in this book are what made me love it so much. Each one I wish I could have met personally and by the end, I feel like I did.

And yes, that it my lovely kitten Charlie telling me I've read enough of Steinbeck for one night..
