Grapes of Wrath Readalong

The Grapes of Wrath is one of my Classics Club titles and Laura at Devouring Texts is hosting a readalong so I am starting my classics project with this book.
"The Grapes of Wrath is the greatest American novel I have ever read." --Dorthy Parker

We are to post about our reading on Tuesdays, beginning October 2, 2012. Here is the schedule for the readalong, quoted from Devouring Texts:  
  •  October 2nd: Things we think about Steinbeck- Have you read Grapes before? Were you booored? Do you harbour a (very understandable) love for Steinbeck? I think we all want to know.
  • October 9th: Chapter 1 through Chapter 11 (that means to the end of Chapter 11. Which I didn't know until like a month ago, so... Just wanted to make that one clear) 
  • October 16th: Chapter 12 through Chapter 18 
  • October 23rd: Chapter 19 through Chapter 25 
  • October 30th: Chapter 26 to End


  1. I'm excited that you're doing this! I posted on Laura's site about my lousy follow thru so I probably won't join you but I'll be checking in to see what you all think of Steinbeck. I think I read Laura thinks he's handsome sooooo...
    anyway I wish Grapes of Wrath was as short as Mice and Men but it's not. I will satisfy myself at being a Read Along stalker.

    1. I just hope it isn't as dismal as The Red Pony. That is my only Steinbeck experience to date and it wasn't good. Glad to hear you are following along!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
