First Book of the Year


Sheila at Book Journey is hosting the First Book of the Year meme and she’s got 80 plus people participating.  And guess who’s one of them?!?

Instead of picking a favorite book to re-read, I’ve decided to see if I can’t whittle down the to-be-read pile a bit. I’ve had Nick Offerman’s Paddle Your Own Canoe.  

In case you don’t know, Nick Offerman plays one of my favorite characters on TV right now, Ron Swanson.   If you’re not watching Parks and Recreation, you should be, if only to be treated to the genius that is Ron Swanson.

I’ve had the book for a few months now, but between books coming in on reserve at the library and getting ARCs from various sources, it kept sliding down the list.   But no more!

And as part of the fun, Sheila asked us to take a photo of ourselves reading our book, which is included below.  She’s created a collage of the pictures over on her blog.  As soon as I get a link to it, I’ll post it.
