Happy almost Thanksgiving week!
I am super excited about Thanksgiving this year! Last year, I was just barely pregnant and sick sick sick. I couldn’t bear to think about food let alone enjoy it. Plus we traveled a ton and that was also super hard. This year, we are hosting friends at home and I’m making at least 3 pies!
Tonight I am finally making a little progress catching up with some blog reading. It’s hard to stay on top of my own reviews always. But I also want to be better at interacting with my blogging friends.
My good friend Jackie over at Death by Tsundoku is co-hosting a fun, low key readathon next week. What could be better than good food and good books? So I am attempting not to aim too high in my reading goals.
How It Works
Dates: Wednesday, November 22nd – Sunday, November 26th, 2017
Participate in any or all of the following:
- Read as many books as you can in those 5 days
- Use the hashtag #ThanksgivingReadathon to share your participation and progress using Twitter and other social media sites
- Publish a Sign-Up Post between Monday the 20th and Wednesday the 22nd with your readathon TBR and goals.

There’s also an awesome giveaway as part of the readathon! More details on Jackie’s announcement post.
My Readathon TBR and Goals
- Reread at least half of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
- Get to the 75% mark in Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (I’m at 68% right now).
- Write and post a book review (don’t want to get too ambitious here.)
Thanksgiving Goals and Traditions
- Successfully cook our Thanksgiving turkey. When I was in college, I spent Thanksgiving at my grandma’s house. It was our tradition that the first Thanksgiving you spent at grandma’s was your year to cook the turkey. This will be my first year cooking it on my own. Wish me luck!
- Watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade–one of my favorite traditions!
- Eat a lot of pie! Growing up we had so much pie on Thanksgiving–often a pie per person. We just love our pie–pumpkin, apple, chocolate cream, lemon, and more. It’s the best!
- Remember our blessings and celebrate them with our children!
