    In the HD/HP category could you use a printed page as your background?

    Welcome jo.on.the.go and ann_stebbing!

    Ann, I think it is fine to use a printed page as your background, as long as the bookshelf and books are hd/hp

    These all reflect my passion for anything by John Steinbeck.

    Novels by Steinbeck that I especially enjoyed
    Cannery Row (my absolute most favorite book)
    Sweet Thursday (a sequel to Cannery Row)
    Of Mice and Men
    Tortilla Flat
    Grapes of Wrath
    East of Eden (semi-biographical)

    Journal of a Novel by John Steinbeck (letters that JS wrote while writing East of Eden)
    Log from the Sea of Cortez by John Steinbeck (an account of a six-week journey in 1940 with Ed Ricketts to the Gulf of California to collect marine specimens. The book inspired me to go to Baja California and the Gulf of California last year - traveled the whole length of Baja California.)

    Between Pacific Tides by Calvin and Ricketts. (A field guide to Pacific Ocean tide pools. Ricketts is the man Steinbeck fictionalized in Cannery Row. Steinbeck wrote the forward to this book)
