What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek - Annie Dillard In my nature writing binge, this had been referenced several times and so I decided to get it for a train ride from LA back to homebase. I enjoyed the writing, even though it could be overwrought at some times. There was something in seeing the everyday, even if Dillard wasn't in a hugely scenic landscape herself and writing about her hiking adventures. A classic in the genre and still a solid read.
