I am a master at slow reading. This is not because I wish to decelerate the pace of modern life, but simply due to the frenzy of the holiday season. I've had a wonderful but busy time with family and friends, and consequently I did not have as much reading time. This morning I slept in, and decided to participate in this marvelous meme, created and hosted by Sheila from Book Journey, First Book of the Year, at the last second, although I've kept it in the back of my mind since I first read about it (the adorable button is reason enough to join in).
My first book of 2015 is a novel by Lynne Hugo, A Matter of Mercy, which I'm reading for a TLC book tour. I started this book a few weeks ago, and I'm still reading it (I have a few more chapters to go). Please stay tuned for my review of it later this month.
Happy New Year! I hope that 2015 will be a healthy and fortunate year for us all. Thanks for reading!
