It’s time to wipe the book slate clean and reset the count! That’s right – it’s New Year’s Day. Or, The Day Everyone Posts This Song.
Welcome to my new blog! My one resolution in 2016 is to post content to it two-three times a week. What better day to launch a blog than the start of a new year???
I have settled on my first read of 2016: Springtime by Michelle de Kretser. It’s published by Catapult, a fabulous indie press that had a stellar start in 2015 with Cries For Help, Various by Padgett Powell and Mrs. Engels by Gavin McCrea (one of my 100 Damn Good Books of 2015).
Catapult has an amazing line-up for 2016 already, including Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton, which I loved, and Springtime, which claims to be a ghost story. I’m excited, because I LOVE ghost stories!
On top of it being the first day of the year, it’s also the first day of the Read Harder Challenge, which is a fun way to find great reads. And if you’re looking to block off a little reading time soon, registration for the 24 in 48 Readathon is open.
I’m ready for another fabulous year of reading! I hope you’re all in your jammies enjoying a good book today, and that you have the most wonderful reading year ever.
Keep your books out and your blood in!
