Sashana Does everyone know what their first book of 2012 will be? I'm thinking of starting with Scent of Magic (Healer, #2) by Maria V. Snyder which is 400 pages

Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 705 comments I might start Black Dust Mambo (Hoodoo, #1) by Adrian Phoenix


message 15: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Lizz, the ebook version of that book doesn't record page numbers. So you might want to mark the paperback one as read. BTW, I've wanted to that book for a long time. Let me know how it goes!

Happy New Year, Susan! Looks like you're starting the year off with a little sizzle :)

Eeep! I just said something crazy, anyway. As long as the paperback has more than 170 pages I think you can mark the ebook as 'read' if that's what you are reading.

I sure am. It's sort of become a tradition. 2012's first read was The Perfect Play (Play by Play, #1) by Jaci Burton :)

Okay. The original link lead to the kindle version. But I'm glad LK fixed the link nonetheless.

Hey, Joanne! Happy New Year! I think you are starting your year with a great book. The Hunger Games is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 705 comments I can't wait to start


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 705 comments Do y'all think we should all have the same shelf name? I think that might be easier

I think we should wait a little bit to pick a captain. It'll give us time to get a feel of everyone.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 450 comments Well, it's officially Jan 1 where I am. I fell asleep, as usual, around 10:30 but was woken up by fireworks and yelling, something I'm not used to. Our town has made fireworks illegal for some reason. But we're at Hubs's place in Georgia. I guess I should start reading since I'm awake ;)
