One of my favorite books from high school, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is amazing. It's in my desk drawer because it was on my textbook class for one of my history classes, so I get to read it again. I'm pretty excited. Hopefully there won't be chapter questions and busy work associated with it this time around. I'd much rather just enjoy the book!
So here's the quote.....
"There were generally a few rioters around, but they never came into the library, so it was a good place to work. After that, if the night was mellow, I strolled down Madison Avenue past the old Murray Hill Hotel, and over 33d Street to the Pennsylvania station."
