Every year, Sheila at Book Journey hosts First Book, where she invites readers to send in photos of them with their first read of the year. I’ve participated the last 4 years, and am excited to do so this year too. So give Book Journey a visit and see what people are reading on the first day of 2020. Thank you Sheila for keeping up this fun tradition!
Here’s my pick: Weather, by Jenny Offill. I was a huge fan of her last book, Dept. of Speculation, and this one is written in a similar style. I am really looking forward to it. It comes out in February 2020, but I am too excited to read it to wait another month. In this picture, I am standing outside Oracle Park in San Francisco on a chilly, grey, wet day (hence the frizzy hair). We were in California for a week over break and are now headed home.
Happy new year, everyone! What is your First Book of 2020?
