3 books finished in 2013: Andy Catlett

3 books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
A continued obsession with Wendell Berry!

What is the first line?
It was still way in the night, as it seemed to me, when my father woke me gently shaking my shoulder with his hand.

Describe the book in haiku form:
recollections of
grandmothers and grandfathers
raising a boy well

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

Anything else you’d like to say?
I can’t tell if my favorite moments are when he reads a book by himself for the first time by pretending that his mother’s voice is reading it in his head, or the realization that his grandmother had cooked an epic feast for a Saturday night merely because he was visiting.
