Some people eat black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year’s Day. Mr. Oddbooks and I go book shopping for good luck. We spent our New Year’s Day in three book stores and scored 55 books and three magazines. A moderate haul, but a good one in terms of book quality. Having new books to sort and scan and put in my to-be-read pile is the best way for me to greet a new year. I hope you all had the New Year’s Day you wanted and I hope 2013 proves to be an excellent, productive year for everyone who reads here.
