10 books finished in 2013: That Distant Land

10 books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
How could I NOT read this book!? (My Wendell Berry crush just keeps growing. Expect to see more of him, once I get around to buying another stack of books.)

What is the first line?
“O that I should ever forget…”

Describe the book in haiku form:
This book comes around
just when I thought I couldn’t
love them any more.

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?
This might be my favorite book so far – instead of a novel around one particular character, it’s a collection of stories about many different townspeople. I continue to be awed by how much affection and respect he has for these characters, and by how formative his stories can be.
