Holiday reading

I am taking:

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck – because it is a classic that I have never read, and because I know I can read Steinbeck, as I read Cannery Row when i was in California.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – because I read it last November and found it so encouraging. It is a story of hope, and Spring (the season of hope) and the book is the perfect antidote to long dark nights and bleak weather.

Old Friend from Far Away (The Practice of Writing Memoir) by Natalie Goldberg – because Natalie Goldberg is my creative writing guru in the way that Bodmyn Corner was Sally Howe’s creative writing guru. And if you don’t know who Sally Howe is, you’d better read Plotting for Beginners.
