As the new year begins, my week one reading agenda consists of: finishing Mockingjay, the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, and reading The Story of Mankind, first winner of the Newbery award. There will be more that I read, probably, but these are the only two set in stone.
I’d like to know: what’s going to be your first read of 2012? Or, since we’re already in the 2nd day of the year, what, possibly, was your first read of the year? As a certain origami finger-puppet might say, “Your comments, I would like.”
By the way, I should mention two things, both reading-related. First one for tomorrow, then one for today.
1) Tomorrow, be sure to check out Nerdy Book Club for a guest post from yours truly. I don’t want to toot my own horn too much, but when I finished it, it felt like something special.
2) Today is the last day my storybook iPad app, The Pirate Koostoe (learn about it here), is going to be on sale at $0.99. At 12am, the price jumps to $2.99. Now, as it was called “a top app in the children’s storybook genre…amazingly well produced” by The iPad Fan, and “a beautiful story with a wonderful message” by Fun Educational Apps, I fully think it’s a good deal at $2.99. But…not being a particularly good capitalist, I’d still love for everyone to own it at $0.99. So make sure, if you’ve got an iPad, to get a copy. If you know someone with an iPad, buy them a copy. Shoot, if you’re sitting next to a random iPad user in the coffeeshop today, buy them a copy.
(Okay, maybe don’t go that far.)
Self-promotion aside, though, what I want most of all is to know what you’re reading. May the posting begin!
