something to honk about
This is the library equivalent to a “ground score” or “trail magic”. My 10yo son opened up a book he checked out from the library and found a Pokemon card. I’m told this is a really good card. Perhaps the second best in his modest collection now.
This bright boy asks us to take him to the library every week. So the Gander and I trade off taking him on Saturdays. I do love the library. I just haven’t been taking the time to read books so much lately. Trivia night at my work brought up a question about Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath that I couldn’t answer. I’ve read a lot of Steinbeck. My favorites are The Wayward Bus, Sweet Thursday, and Travels with Charley, in that order. I never finished reading the Grapes of Wrath, arguably his most well known and popular work. But certainly not his best work. (That is a fact, you can look it up on such esteemed websites as The Honking Goose blog.)
Point being, on our recent library trip I decided I would check out the Grapes of Wrath and attempt to read it.
But it was already checked out. Phew. Dodged a bullet.
What gems have you unearthed at your local public library lately?
