23 books finished in 2012: Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

23 books finished in 2012

Why are you reading this book?
It’s one of those books that everyone assumes I’ve already read, so it was time to catch up. Also, this might have been one of the first requested through PaperBackSwap – it just took me a while to finally pick it up.

What is the first line?
I used to have a cat, an old fighting tom, who would jump through the open window by my bed in the middle of the night and land on my chest.

Describe the book in haiku form:
local calendar
natural economics
observations here

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
keep and loan out to friends
x keep to read again & again & again x
post to paperbackswap.com
throw it away

Anything else you’d like to say?
It took me longer than expected to learn the rhythm of this book and really enjoy it, particularly since it seems to be recommended along with many of my other favorites. The section on stalking muskrats won me over, though, so pick up the book and read that chapter first if you need to.

  1. I’m on (at least) my third try at this book, and this time, it’s sticking. It seems like I somehow wasn’t ready to get it before, but am now. And you’re the second person this week to describe this book in such terms – taking awhile to get her pace/language, but then loving it a little ways in. When I flipped through to find my spot in the pages this morning, I saw that I’m just a short way from the muskrats! Can’t wait.
