Happy New Year one and all! Here’s to a 2022 filled with good health, happiness and fun times with those we love.
I celebrate each new year by posting a photo of me with the first book I plan to read thanks to Sheila’s First Book of the Year Meme. But, of course, I don’t just read one book.
- Collected Stories | Shirley Hazzard for Bill’s AWW Gen IV from the 16th-23rd January
- Pilgrimage #1 Pointed Roofs | Dorothy Richardson #PilgrimageTogether
- The Cat Who Saved Books | Sosuke Natsukawa for Dolce Bellezza’s Japanese Literature Challenge 15
- Oh, William | Elizabeth Strout
Over the next few days I MIGHT post some 2021 wrap up posts, although right now I’m just glad to be done with the old year. Curiously, I always prefer the even numbered years, perhaps because I was born in an even year, and therefore my age for most of an even year is also even.
For now I simply want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who have followed Brona’s Books from our old Blogspot home just over a year ago, to our brand new shiny home here at This Reading Life. It has been a year of adventure and learning as I embraced the new Block Editor and slowly wordpress-ised my old posts and pages (an on-going process).
Here’s to a New Year full of books and bookish conversations…
And an Edith Trilogy Readalong (dates TBA)!
