Best American Project

I have taken it into my head to start another project!  I’m going to try and read each of the books in the Best American Essay, Short Story, Nonrequired Reading, and Science and Nature Writing series from Mariner Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).  And possibly the Ecco Science Writing collections, depending on content.  Whoa, crazy (there is no try, only do).  I have a goodly quantity of the Essay anthologies accumulated already (thank you, inexpensive used books).
