This week's Favorite Read is:

Release Date: 1937
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble


The tragic story of the complex bond between two migrant laborers in Central California. They are George Milton and Lennie Small, itinerant ranch hands who dream of one day owning a small farm. George acts as a father figure to Lennie, who is a very large, simple-minded man, calming him and helping to rein in his immense physical strength.

Why it's one of my Favorite Reads:

I love this book because the main characters, George and Lennie are so great to follow. They're just two friends trying to get a bit of their own stake so they can live a peaceful life, but like many things in life, it doesn't work out the way they planned. The story is beautiful and the ending is tragic. It's just truly a great story.
