Part I, Chapter 40, Day after Day, Month after Month Summary and Analysis

In Part I, Chapter 40, 1938 does not prove to be better than 1937. Ginzburg and Julia fall into a structured pattern of existence. They read, take notes in notebooks purchased from the prison store, and Ginzburg writes a novel about her childhood. They continue hiding items like fish bones and medicine.
