There are several books that Raphael wants me to read, and there are several that I want him to read. We decided that I would read Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, and he would read Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. I recently finished his book, and he's working on mine. Of Mice and Men is a short book about two men traveling to find work during a difficult economical time for the U.S. It is a story of friendship, loyalty, and courage. I highly recommend it.
