The Sunday Salon: Being thankful


It's so hard to believe that Thanksgiving is this week! Since I was a kid, this has always been one of my favorite holidays, obviously partly because I look forward to our family getting together, which we don't do a lot throughout the year, and partly because of the food! Who doesn't love the food? I love to help prepare the meal and share it with my family. It is so nice to sit around the same table and be thankful we have one another. My family is quite small anymore so it just makes it all the more important to me to spend time with my extended family on Thanksgiving.

Another reason I'm looking forward to this particular holiday weekend is that I'm taking part in my very first Read-A-Thon! As you can see by the badge on the sidebar to the right, I've entered Thankfully Reading Weekend. This is an informal read-a-thon with no rules. It begins Friday, November 27 and runs thru Sunday, the 29th. If you're like me and you don't go anywhere near the stores this weekend, think about joining me and the other participants in this fun event. All the details can be found at Book Blog Social Club. I hope to see you there!

This is going to be a busy week for everyone, so I want to take the opportunity now to wish all of my book friends in the U.S. a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I love Thanksgiving, too - I think it's partly because it's the one holiday that hasn't been over-commercialized yet.

  4. It's amazing isn't it, how many Thanksgiving foods everyone loves, and yet we actually make ourselves wait all year to have them!

  6. Lisa, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. The food is always good but being with family is the best!

    I am going to be reading Stephen King's new book during the holiday. We'll see how that goes since it's well over 1000 pages.

  11. Lisa, Rick here. Thanks for visiting my blog. I really like finding people with RP who still show that "disabilities" don't stop them. I, myself, personally enjoy the challenge of accomplishing things people say I can't.

    Thanks for the wonderful things you said on my blog. I look forward to reviewing yours as well.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and have a very Happy Holiday season!
