Quandary

February 22, 2014 @ 9:10 am | Filed under: Books

Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is on sale for Kindle today. This puts me in such a quandary.
1) Have never read it.
2) Have long intended to.
3) Bought a copy in 1993, have moved it 6 times.
4) See #1.
5) Am more likely to read it on Kindle, because eyes.
6) See #3.

  1. Upon your “quandary” I just purchased the Kindle format of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. I too have a long list of books I want to read. I have a stack that I move from one place to another changing the order as I move them. My intentions are good but my progress is slow. I am not the avid reader that you are. I find myself sitting and knitting when I have spare time. Once I start to read I will be captured and then find myself reading until the book is completed. Many times that is actually a sad occasion. I find myself pulled into the story line and actually hate to leave when the last page is finished. Thanks to you I have gotten the Kindle Today’s Deals delivered to my email for a long time. I have purchased and read many more books because of the Kindle app. So easy to read whenever – especially when my knitting is not at hand. This is not a Kindle ad but just how reading books works for me. Thanks for the suggestion.

  2. oh my! no quandary. buy the book for your kindle.

    it’s so important, lovely, moving.

    bears re-reading early and often.

    really.

    truly.

  3. I find this book good for dipping into, savoring brief passages, and setting aside till the next time. I’ve let myself off the hook on a cover to cover read… But it is so lovely and rich.
