First book of the new year: 12/26/17
I've had a bunch of different people ask me this year what my first book of the new year is going to be. I guess in recent years planning the first book of a new year has become a thing. My short answer for the curious is, I don't know.
I am always — let me rephrase that — usually reading something. I'm often reading multiple things at once. I tend to keep ten books as "currently reading" on GoodReads — though in reality I'm only focusing on one to three of them at any given time.
Also, for my reading, I don't count January 1st as the start of a new year. That's because I started keeping track of my reading back in 1987 over summer break between elementary and junior high. For that reason, my "new year" for reading is in about six months from now.
If I'm looking at the set of ten I'm currently reading, it will be one of the ones listed on my most recent, It's Monday, What Are You Reading? post. If the question is what will be the first book published in 2018 that I read, that honor will go to Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgans.
My planned new release reads for January include:
What about you?
