Follow Friday: Turkey Day


Eat lots of turkey!
Then find a corner and a pillow and bury your nose in a book.  =)

I'm just thankful for this outlet--to be able to write about books and read others' thoughts who feel just as strongly about the written word as I do. Since I stay at home with my daughter now, it's nice to be able to have that kind of interaction with other book lovers. =) I guess, just to name a couple names, I'll have to say I'm thankful for Angie at Angieville for introducing me to so many great YA novels and Trish at Hey Lady! for always making me laugh. And so many others . . . =)

Two of my favorite books discovered this year are Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, which if weird because I'm not that big on sci fi, but I really loved that book.  And The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which I read for the Dewey Read-a-thon, last year, actually, but it's close enough.  =)  And I'm so so so excited (and thankful) to see the movie soon!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm a stay-at-home mom as well. My kids are 3 and 6 so no "book talk" for us really. Well, no book I want to talk about, lol. So I understand about wanting to have interaction with other book lovers.

Happy FF and you can find mine here.
