Holy the Firm by Annie Dillard

Clear rating
I read this much too fast and will read it again soon.

I feel like Dillard's work, and this book in particular, is to writing what impressionism is to painting. I don't always get it, but I love it. I wish I could write like her.

In the Presence of Fear by Wendell Berry
Rate this book
Clear rating
These short essays would actually be a great intro to Wendell and some of the spirit of his writings.

Not a lot that needs to be said. Every time I read him, Berry solidifies his place very near the top of my list.

A corner-stone book in organic agriculture, this book should complete the theoretical background of my reading so that I can move on to the practical stuff related to becoming a farmer!

Well, the book served the above purpose. But it was slow and sort

The Gift of Asher Lev by Chaim Potok

Clear rating
I can't quite give this 5 stars, but 4 isn't enough either. Hugely compelling, but the ending only satisfied me at the 4.5 star level; it felt a little rushed and didn't quite add up. Too bad there isn't another book in the story of Asher Lev.
