What I’ve Been Reading


In the spirit of learning for learning’s sake, I read East of Eden and when I finished it, I thought Man…That John Steinbeck Can Write. HIGHLY recommend. It was The Longest Book Ever but I would read it again. I also read some other things.

East of Eden by John Steinbeck

Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan

Uneasy Street: The Anxieties of Affluence by Rachel Sherman

Dream Hoarders by Richard Reeves

  1. Thanks for the recs! I always love a good long book for when we drive to Michigan. I’m going to see if we can check out East of Eden from the library for our next trip!

  2. HelloNeiman!

    I read East of Eden a couple years ago and think I’m the only one who didn’t like it. I LOVE Steinbeck and wanted to like this, but simply didn’t get into it. Felt too dark and dismal, even for him :-/

    Glad you liked it though, it’s worth being on everyone’s “have read shelf” regardless!
