When I visited my sister Catherine in August, I stayed in the guest room/office/library. Of course I couldn't resist browsing the many bookshelfs in the library and came home with 4 books (they have an extremely long check out period). A couple of them were books that I had originally read in high school, but was interested in reading again.
The first was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The male part of the radio show I listen to in the mornings had gotten married recently and had a Gatsby theme. Since I couldn't remember much about the book, I was excited to read it again. I actually didn't particularly care for it. It was okay, it just didn't keep me interested in that 'can't put it down' way.
*Side note: Joey, seeing the book on the end table, said "Isn't that a high school book?" Why yes, dear, it is. But you know, you can read it anytime.
The other one (which I'm currently reading) is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I get a ton of magazine subscriptions and in one they did an article about Harper Lee. It piqued my curiosity so I was pleased to find the opportunity to read it again. It definitely qualifies as a 'can't put it down' book.
I would also like to reread Of Mice and Men so I'll probably have to hit my local library sometime soon to find it. Unless Catherine's library ships...
