It's the Thankfully Reading Weekend hosted by Jenn of Jenn's Bookshelves.
There are no rules to the weekend; we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for the year. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit.We’ll also be checking in on Twitter and Instagram using hashtag #thankfullyreading. Join in for the weekend or for only a single day. No rules, no pressure! If you think you can join in, grab the button and sign up here.
I'm excited to spend a few days reading, relaxing, and maybe nibbling on a little bit of turkey and pie. Just for fun, I created a Thankfully Reading Weekend Tic-Tac-Toe Game.
Want to join me in playing? Start any time. Do as much or as little as you like. Talk about it on your blog (or Twitter or wherever you like to talk books) as little or as much as you like. When you are finished (with a square, a row, or all the squares) link up here and throw your name into the hat to win a $25 gift card from Book Depository. The BINGO game Linky will be open from November 27th through the end of the day CST December 1, and it is open to anyone in the world who can receive books from Book Depository.
What are my plans to celebrate Thankfully Reading Weekend? I have a lovely stack of nonfiction books, both from the library and from my own shelves, that I will have to choose from this weekend. I'll be cooking and visiting family as well.
I'm printing out my BINGO board and I'm hoping to do a blackout.
Now where to start?!
Bonnie, of Bonnie's Books, saw that I began reading Justice late this afternoon. She shared with me a link to author Michael Sandel's series of lectures that inspired the book. It has been fun reading a chapter and then watching a lecture.
Midday, I'm about halfway through with Justice and about halfway through with the series of lectures by author Michael J. Sandel.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
I'm still reading Justice, and I also started Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers by Deborah Helligman.
Follow-up: I had nine entries to my Thankfully Reading BINGO contest. My husband chose a number between 1 and 9, and he picked 7. The winner is Bonnie of Bonnie's Books! Congratulations!
