No arrivals in my "real" mailbox or my "email" box. But I did checkout one from our library. I went to get a copy of The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. It's the Classic Selection for the 3 months of June-August on Ladies & Literature on Goodreads. The card catalog said they had 1 copy of the print book. They also said they had several audio books, an ebook, and more that one reading guide. But I could not find the shelf copy, nor could the librarian. Long story, but they will look for it and if they find it, they will email me. In the meantime, I looked for Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. No luck there either.

I have been wanting to read this one for awhile. It is a title I had heard of before and it was published the year I was born. (1946) That for a couple of challenges that I am involved in.

So I was really surprised when I read the bio of Carson McCullers and discovered she was a woman, who lived during my lifetime and died at the early age of 50, in 1967. This is a small book only 162 pages, so I should finish it pretty quickly. I want to read The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter too.
I am currently still reading
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
