New Year's Day
New Year's Day | Edith Wharton
20 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
The sad story of Lizzie Hazeldean in New York in the 1870's, ''New Year's Day'' is filled with the author's ruefulness about social strictures that force her heroine into undertaking an adulterous relationship.

I totally forgot to post this earlier this week. I managed to outdo my 2018 reading goal! True, I counted picture books, graphic novels, and audiobooks, but in my mind they count! I‘ve upped this year‘s goal to 300. I can‘t wait to read and discover new books this year!

BridgetteM Wow! Congratulations! 🎉🎈🎊 10mo

This really is worth reading. Perfect length, a longer story would have gotten tiresome. Interesting plot twist and books feature heavily in the story. #newyearsday

Intended to finish this last night but day caught up with me. I've tea and quiet today. Settling in to finish New Years Day. So far it's quite good: "Long as she and her husband had lived together, this passion of his remained for her as much a mystery as on the day when she surprised him, mute and absorbed, over what people she had always lived with would have called 'a deep book.' It was her first encounter with a born reader."

Suet624 Lovely quote. 11mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Suet624 it was a surprisingly interesting read. Good plot twist. Lots of book quotes. 11mo

Not bad! But not as much as I'd hoped. I ended up having a friend over last night for movies and pizza, and as much as I love reading, I think friends are more important. :)

I'm #offtobedfordshire with one of the few New Year's Day books by renowned author. It was a bit hard to find a copy. My Library had it in old collection of Edith Wharton. 🥂

New year, new reading log!



Happy New Year, Littens! May your year be filled with many a cozy armchair & never-ending stacks of books ♥️

My 2019 goal is back to 70 books, & 20 AOC, 7 w/ LGBTQIA+ characters, 1 nonfiction. It‘s both daunting & exhilarating to stare at that 0% on goodreads & this empty spread, thinking of all the books it‘s going to fill up with.

Got any #readingresolutions of your own? I‘d love to know!

#BuJo #bulletjournal

Freespirit Your resolutions look great. Mine are to take more time for reading ( less TV😊), try to read 50 books, audiobooks in the car and when I walk instead of podcasts, 2 non-fiction, a book of short stories, and a school re-read 😊😊 10mo

So this is happening. I‘m trying to read off my giant pile at home, but this is a one day event.😳Maybe start my new book buying ban tomorrow?Or maybe I‘m off the hook because Changing Hands sells used as well as new?That‘s my first rationalization of the New Year!😂📚
They close the Phoenix store this day, they need all staff in Tempe to handle this sale.If you are around,it‘s great.

Suet624 I love to see lines forming outside of a bookstore 😁 10mo

Happy New Year everyone! In addition to the New Year, today is also Westley's 5th birthday, so I will be spending the day spoiling him! He's already had his peanut butter banana pupcake & later he will get gifts & go for a ride to visit his grandma.

Spending the day appreciating & celebrating this sweet pup seems like the perfect way to start the New Year! I hope everyone is having a wonderful first day of 2019 as well! #HappyNewYear #DogsOfLitsy

Does anyone else put an unreasonable amount of thought into what book will be the first you read in the new year? I feel like it sets the tone for the rest of the year.

What are you reading first?

Naj I'm thinking of starting the new year with The Secret History. I've heard only great things about it and I like books with an academic setting. So, it's a pretty safe choice. 11mo

Just signed up for the #newyearwhodis I‘ve been slightly out of touch with my Litsy peeps since early summer and am hoping to get back in the swing of things in the new year. This looked like a fun way to start. For more details, see @monalyisha ‘s post.

It snowed in Texas on New Year's Eve!! My boys said it was a Christmas Miracle!! ❄️❄️

Soubhiville Fun! The year I leave, two snows in a month. Weird, and Knoxville hasn‘t had any. I‘m sure we will before winter is gone. Happy New Year! 2y

Foragingfantasy @Soubhiville it was magical! We opened the door and it was falling! We didn't even know it was supposed to snow! It's pretty, but I'm not made for cold weather. Even if I was born during a blizzard. 2y
