Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair by Anne Lamott
Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair

Baggsie, October 22, 2014

I am an unabashed Anne Lamott fan, and in Stitches, she does it again! Each page is full of simple & profound truths. Lamott shares her own stories and isn't afraid to laugh at herself while uncovering some really important fundamental truths about humanity. She's spiritual without being preachy. She loves people, flaws and all. Stitches uses quilting as a metaphor for life (particularly times in life when things get tough). I think this is a must-read!

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Baggsie, January 3, 2013

After a near-death experience due to pneumonia at age 25, Dillard took a year to live alone in the Virginia backwoods and she chronicles her experience, season by season, in this book. Reading this book was like balm for my soul. I took months reading it, and I savored every sentence. Dillard described nature on a micro and macro level with intensity and clarity, while weaving in references to literature and Scripture and culture and throwing in some factoids to boot. This book is, in a word, Profound. It is a book I hope to always have on hand.
