Happy New Year! For the sixth year, Sheila at Book Journey is hosting the First Book of the Year event. The idea is simple - just share a photo of you and your first book. Sheila says:
Year 6. I LOVE First book so much. This tradition for me goes further back than the 6 years I have opened up to the reading world here on Book Journey. I am THRILLED to be doing it again and thank you to those who have messaged me to ask if I will be doing it again.The answer
Of course we are doing it.
My life has changed a bit – I may not be blogging as steady as I used to and I have moved to a more diverse site where I can share other things beyond books – check me out at I Guess I Am Doing This (also a work in process… but I am not giving up ;P )
Here is what First Book is. The first book of the New Year should be:
A. A coveted book that you have wanted to read but have just not found the time.
B. A delicious favorite… one you have read before, but crave to read again.
C. Really whatever you want it to – it is after all YOUR First Book Of the year.
Make it AWESOME.
This year I have selected Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life by Jane Sherron De Hart...
"...fifteen years in work, written with the cooperation of Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself and based on many interviews with the justice, her husband, her children, her friends, and her associates."
The book was a Christmas present from my daughter. I also used an audible credit to make it a read/listen combination... at 750+pages and just over 24 hours, this may take a while!
