First Book of the Year ~ 2016!!



Happy New Year to You!! May you have a happy, healthy, joyous, and prosperous 2016!!

Join Shelia from Book Journey and other fellow book bloggers as we feature our first book read in 2016.

My first book of 2016 is:

The Fortune Cookie Chronicles: Adventures in the World of Chinese Food by Jennifer 8. Leehad this book title on my reading wishlist for quite some time before I purchased a hardback copy of it for $2 at a library book sale about 2+ years ago now?!? I finally decided to dig this book out and start reading it this year. I enjoy eating CHINESE FOOD and most other Asian cuisines. I also enjoy reading nonfiction books about food, so this book seemed like a good choice for me to read at the start of 2016. Especially with the Chinese New Year right around the corner!!

I'm also hoping to read other books I've had for a year or longer in my ever growing 'to be read' pile. Happy reading to you all this year!!

    1. I tried making one or two Chinese dishes at home, but they didn't turn out as well as at the restaurant we eat, so left the cooking to them!!

  21. I love your photo.

    Did you take your photo in the same chair last year too? For some reason I recall that chair. :)

    Happy New Year.

    ENJOY your first book of the year. Sounds good.
