I will begin the new reading year with a Japanese novel, The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa, a book that my daughter, Jasmine, recommended to me. I've been meaning to read it for a while now, and I've kept it on the top of a stack of books in my room as a reminder. (I couldn't resist reading a few pages of it on New Year's Eve.)
This is the third time I've participated in The First Book of the Year, hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. What is your first book of 2017?
