This is it! First post of the year---first book of the year!

 
 
 
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
 
 
 
 
On Audio:
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.

Winter Solstice has a beautiful cover.

I'm hoping to reread Winter Solstice this year. It's been far too long since I read it and I absolutely loved it. Travels with Charley on audio sounds perfect and Elizabeth Enright is one of my absolute favorite children's authors. Have you read any of the Melendy family books or Gone Away Lake? Now you've gotten me wanting to do a big reread session! Hope you love them all!

Have loved every Rosamund Pilcher novel I've read, not sure I've read this one though. Travels with Charley is amazing on audio... enjoy!!

Marce said...

I have always thought about what book to start the year with. It is hard to hold off sometimes though. I completed and reviewed mine on Dec 30 so it was easy this year.

Happy New Year

I hope you enjoy all your first books :)
Happy New Year!

I have Pilcher on my TBR. I think I haven't read her before. You are good at reading several books at a time.

Kathryn T said...

Happy New Year and I loved Winter Solstice when I read it ages ago, Makes me want to reread it! Love that you have all your first books planned out. I was in the middle of an audiobook so I have an overhang one!
Happy New Year.

Gigi Ann said...

I read the book and enjoyed it, I hope you are enjoying it also. Happy Reading in 2016.

My mother loves Rosamund Pilcher...I should check and see if she's read this one.

Winter Solstice is the only Pilcher novel I've read and I liked it. Happy reading! I've been wanting to read Travels With Charley for years!

Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness) said...

That totally looks like a January book. I hope you're having a great day of reading!

Debbie, I hope you enjoy your FIRST book of 2016. I read this years ago and thought it was good. Happy New Year.

Loved the Pilcher book! Happy New Year,

ChaosIsAFriendOfMine said...

I like to read more than one book at a time too. Happy New Year!

Love the new cover on Winter Solstice.

Tina said...

I love Rosumunde Pilcher, one of her best was Coming Home....oh wait, The Shell Seekers, another epic book. Did you get Winter Solstice on kindle? I bought one of hers during the sale on Amazon.

Happy new year to you and I hope we have much book discussion in 2016!!

Laura Fabiani said...

You're right, Pilcher's book does seem like the perfect January read. Hope you love it!

Laurie C said...

I think I've only read The Shell Seekers and that was after tons of urging from a librarian friend. I loved it, but that was years ago. Time for another Rosamunde Pilcher this year, I think!

Elizabeth said...

I LOVED The Shell Seekers.

Great choice.

Happy New Year!!

You are ready for anything with all those wonderful books at hand!

Literary Feline said...

Winter Solstice does sound good! I hope you enjoy it. And I especially hope you enjoy Last Words. That's one of my favorites of 2015. :-)

List Addict said...

That's so funny! We multiple readers can't just do one can we! It's like going into a bookshop or a library and just getting one book. Not. Going. To. Happen. I hope you enjoy them. I loved Travels With Charley. We read it in the car when we were road tripping in the States. Very apt.

Read well,
