First Book of the Year?

Hi there,

I'm Rob, aka Trebro, the person behind The Book Stew (for books) and Panel Patter (for comics). I will be personally hitting myself up for 10 cents for every book and trade I finish this year, which should work out to about 100 books and 200 or so comics, based on past years of reading.

I've always loved books from a very young age, and am looking forward to helping others share in the fun I've always had by helping out Reader to Reader.

So now that we're approaching January First, I thought I'd ask what other people are planning to read for their first book of the new year. In my case, I've selected "Lincoln's Youth" by Louis Austin Warren. 2009 is Lincoln's birth year bicentennial, so I am going to try and read 1 Lincoln book every moth this year. I got this book a few years ago when vacationing in Indianapolis, where their historical center has a Lincoln wing. It's about, well, I guess you can figure that from the title! I figured that's a great place to start my Lincoln reading.

What are you planning for your first book of the year?

That is such a good question. I haven't really thought about it. Maybe I'll start with Fables #7 or Black Stars in a White sky by JonArno Lawson or something by David Sedaris . . .

Thanks for the great question.

I can definitely say that my first book will be the newest Fables graphic novel, War and Pieces. I just picked it up and can't wait to read it!

Jessi, you have the newest Fables. My mouth is open! I am waiting for my library to get it in. They've ordered it but it has not arrived yet. You are so lucky!

Hi everyone. I hope you've found some fantastic books to start with. I'm starting with 'Dooley Takes the Fall' a YA crime novel which has had some fab blog reviews.
