1. It's complicated so I'll just say Project Manager in a Rare Books department 🙃
2. Bookseller
3. Waitress (I lasted a week!)
4. Why can't someone just pay me to read all day?! (but my current job is pretty good)

saresmoore I don‘t even know if I‘d make it through the interview process in food service. 13mo
wanderinglynn Thanks for playing! 😀 13mo
Moray_Reads @saresmoore it's always difficult working with the public but people are particularly awful when there's for involved! 🤯🤬😵 13mo
saresmoore Truth! My worst job ever was in hotel reservations at this famous old-money resort hotel. People can be just awful over the phone. So perhaps it‘s food AND lodging that bring out the worst in people? 13mo

I‘m really enjoying listening to this.

Had I read this in school 20 years ago, I don‘t think I would have appreciated it the way I do now.

Steinbeck makes me feel like I‘ve gone back in time and am experiencing that part of American history right there with the Joads.

Chazlyn Read in in high school too. Liked it well enough, until the very end and then I absolutely hated it. I'm not sure if I would feel that way if I had read it as an adult, but now it's just tainted for me hahah 1y
Chazlyn This is the one that has like a whole chapter near the beginning with the turtle right? 1y
YouReadMyEyes @Chazlyn yep! 🐢 1y
RidgewayGirl There‘s an excellent book about the impact of this book called “Obscene in the Extreme” that I read soon after reading “The Grapes of Wrath” which really enhanced my understanding of this book. 1y
YouReadMyEyes @RidgewayGirl Wow, I‘m going to look that up. Sounds super interesting. Thanks for letting me know! 1y

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”

So many beautiful quotes in this book. Slowly rereading with my 12th graders for first time since college. I forgot how much I loved those in between chapters in the novel. #thegrapesofwrath #steinbeck #currentlyreading
