Do like your tumblr, thank you for it. "... describes someone's voice": May not fit as accurate dictionary definition, yet when talking with one very special friend, the lilt of her voice is music to my ears. Now to view your lists of books read! With hope in finding a new author. Signed, just another book worm.
Thank you. Glad to hear you enjoy my little place here. Have you found anything interesting on my list of books?
Ah, Grapes of Wrath! Not new to myself, been literally decades. If I may, not knowing what you do or not know? The book was banned here in Central Calif. libraries & schools. Main reason given was the last page, so beautiful when the young woman breast-feeds the starving older man--this was the 1930's after all. Yet, a very real reason, too, to ban was political. Big agri-busines did not want "them okies" organized by "pink-o commies". Either way, moral or fear, it worked. the-book-worm
The Grapes of Wrath. First read over 20 years ago. I almost forgot how truly amazing it is. Well, I am not really reading it but listening to an audiobook in Polish. An excellent translation which is very rare nowadays. But this one was translated over 30 years ago when translators were true artists. Yes, I knew it was banned in US. Like so many other books that did not deserve their fate.
Every day I tell myself that reading newspapers is a waste of time, but then … I cannot do without them. They are like a drug.
