The Grapes of Wrath is a fantastic book, very sad, though! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Vasilly said...

Ah The Grapes of Wrath!! It's a book that I've been meaning to read for years. Maybe 2014 will be the year. Happy New Year!

I had a hard time posting the MOV photos. Proud to say that I was able to convert them to GIFs. Happy day!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I'm ninety pages in and it's just as wonderful as I remember.

Enjoy!

katenread said...

Love the photos! You need a good techno beat as accompaniment. With The Grapes of Wrath. ;)

Happy New Year!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Maybe I'll learn how to do that this year.

Alison Skap said...

Grapes of Wrath is one of those books I faked reading in High School and promised myself I would actually get to. Someday...

Enjoy!

Literate Housewife said...

I love all of those pictures! I've never read The Grapes of Wrath. I switched to Honors classes my junior year and they read it the year before. I'm going to have get to this eventually. I feel out of the loop.

Steinbeck is one of my favorite authors. I used to teach The Pearl to my English students. Enjoy your first read of the year!

Lindsey said...

Oh my gosh, those pictures are cracking me up! I hope you are enjoying your first read!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

The pictures seem to capture some of the transporting quality of the reading experience, I think!

Trish said...

This is one of those books I've been meaning to read for years!!! Enjoy!

bermudaonion said...

I read that in high school and should probably spend time reading it again. I'm sure I'd get something different out of it these days.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I loved it in high school. I love it now. But it is a much richer read this time.

Anne Bennett said...

Wow. What special effects! I finished reading Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver on Jan. 1st. It took me a month to read.

Thanks for stopping by on my Top Ten Tuesday.

Happy New Year.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Trying out a new app.

Melinda Ott said...

I'm ashamed to admit this, but I've never read the Grapes of Wrath. sigh! Maybe I'll get to it this year!

Elizabeth said...

Is the app Photofunia?

If so, which choices are they?

THANKS.

Elizabeth

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I used a free app called Megaphoto.

Elizabeth said...

THANK YOU.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

No need for shame, Melinda. Well worth reading, in any case.

Greg said...

That's a great first book of the year! And fun pics too... happy Saturday!

Vicki said...

I've been wanting to read this book, but haven't yet.

I hope you enjoy it!

Louise said...

I haven't read it either. Very clever photo trickery Deb.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

It gives me a surreal 60's-ish feeling to look at these photos.

Susan Lindquist said...

LOL! Fun shots and a classic book, to boot!

gautami tripathy said...

How did you do that?!!

Thanks for sharing!! Have a great 2014!

Here is my snapshot post.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

It was a little tricky. First I saved the little photos as videos at YouTube. Then I used a free conversion tool on the Web to change them to .GIF files.

Fun camera tricks! What a great way to celebrate the first book of the new year!
