A Great Thanksgiving Read

I know this post is a little late, but there is still time to get your read on! 🙂

I thought Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck is a great recommendation on this beautiful Thanksgiving weekend.

This novel is about an ex-convict, Tom Joad and his family, that have to leave their home in Oklahoma because of the drought in the Southern United States during the Great Depression. This forces them to travel along Route 66, heading west towards California, where they believe work and food will be abundant.

This story is of their hardships they encounter with small children, a lack of food and shelter, and trying to survive long enough to rebuild their lives.

This story makes you thankful for everything you have, and is why I am recommending it this weekend, while we are gorging ourselves on yummy turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings, we should remember there are still people in the world today they are not as lucky as we are.

Happy Gobble Gobble Everyone! Enjoy!!
