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 is…
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.
Then, once you have picked what it will be, email me a picture of you with the book (send it to firstname.lastname@example.org). This adds to the excitement of the First Book. On January 1st I will post all the pics in a collage format of all of you around the world that are doing First Book. I do hope you will join me – friends, family, fellow book lovers… this event each year and your willingness to do this with me makes my heart smile. 🙂
Here is some (yes some… so many participate it is incredible!) of what came in last year:
Remember – this should be the first book you plan to be reading into the New Year. Yes, you can start it New Years Eve ;P You can send the picture (email@example.com) anytime between now and New Years Eve so I can prep the collage. Thanks everyone… having this project to work on makes the New Year fun.
