Here it is!
I've been looking forward to joining up with Sheila at Book Journey for the first book of the year.
Today, if you check out Book Journey, there will be a collage with everyone sharing their first read of the year. It should be fun to check out everyone's books.
I've never thought about it before---about what book I begin the year with, but this year, after reading Sheila's post, that's all I could think about.
I chose a book, (it seems like a good January book---I just want to watch the snow and drink hot coffee, finish up the Christmas cookies and READ THIS BOOK!) but then I had to hold off on it, so that I would indeed be reading it on Jan 1st. I was afraid if I started it too soon, I would finish it---I held off until December 31st and am carrying over to today!
For some reason choosing a book to see me into a new years was symbolic! Of what, I don't know---it just seemed important this year.
THIS is bookworm/book nerd/ book dork problem #19, I'm sure--- feeling that a book is so important.
Then---it dawned on me that I read more than one book at a time, so just in case you want to know how I'm brining in my New Year.... here goes:
Bringing in 2016 on my Kindle:
Last Words by Rich Zahradnik
Travels With Charley
And my first Newbery Award Book will be:
Have a great New Year's Day!
I wish you all laughter thru-out the year.
