First Book: 2022

First Book 2022: Our Country Friends Today is a glorious, sunny day after days and days of rain. We got up at 4am to drop my son off at the airport and then came home and promptly went back to bed. Slept in until 10am and then I remembered that I never wrote my First Book post.

So, here it is. Sheila from Book Journey is hosting #FirstBook again and this is an event that I try not to miss. You pick your first book of the year and then she shares it in a collage format. Normally, you take a photo of yourself with the book but this year mine is an e-book, Our Country Friends by Gary Shteyngart.

Join us! What is your first book of the year?

It’s that time of the year!! Sheila is once again hosting First Book and it’s something I look forward to every year. Readers love the anticipation of a good read, don’t they? And I love the idea of starting 2021 with a good book.

Visit Book Journey for details but basically you select a book, take a photo of you with the book, and then email it to her. She includes it in a photo collage and off we go!

Here’s what I’ve chosen:
