Here's to a Wonderful New Year!




Here I am, ready to start reading my first book of the year! Wowsa! I loved The Rosie Project and I was thrilled to get this copy of the sequel, The Rosie Effect, in the mail from the publisher this week.
I've read just a few pages, but I feel sure this will be a perfect choice for my First Read of the Year.

Take a look at Sheila's blog, Book Journey, today and 
see what everyone is reading on this first day of the brand new year!


The enormous live oak tree in our town, all lighted up for the holidays. So beautiful.

I am so hopeful for 2015.

  28. I hope you are enjoying your first book of 2015. I haven't read either one of these books, it sounds like I have missed some good reading in 2014. Also I wanted to thank you for visiting my little corner of the reading world recently.
