Normally I pick up books that are only around 200 pages long — I used to try longer books and inevitably found myself reading a few things at once because of my lack of patience.
So it’s with a little bit of pride that I say I’m finally reading the Grapes of Wrath after my mom gave me her copy. Ever since a friend read it and said it turned him into an anarchist I’ve been curious, and only 30 pages in I’m starting to see why.
I’ve been reading a lot more in general lately, and I highly recommend two other books I’ve finished in the last month:
Radio Free Dixie: Robert F. Williams and the Roots of Black Power by Tim Tyson
Partisanas: Women in the Armed Resistance to Fascism and German Occupation (1936-1945) by Ingrid Strobl
