Travels with Charley in Search of America: (Centennial Edition)

Travels with Charley: In Search of America - John Steinbeck 2/2/11 ** The continuing quest to expand my reading habits. I heard a fascinating series on BBC's arts and entertainment program, The Strand. They recreated Steinbeck's journey, visiting many of the same spots that he went to 50 years ago. This time the producers talked with local artists to give us a modern day picture of New Orleans, Fargo, Spokane, Monterey & somewhere in Maine. The series inspired me to give the book a try. As usual, I've requested it from my library. (I might be more open to the idea of an eReader if I could check out more titles, rather than buying them.)
