Read all the books in my "must read" pile (read all 3 entries…)

this week i finished annie dillard’s Pilgrim At Tinker Creek. oh, what an amazing piece of prose… it took me nine months to finish & i ended up reading it from three different copies, but i finally did it. it was so beautifully crafted & such a fascinating read—like a nature walk with a brilliant writer. a must read for anyone who loves nature & wants to learn more about nature & life.
