Since we have no travel plans for Thanksgiving, I decided to join in on the “Thankfully Reading Weekend” hosted by Jenn at Jenn’s Bookshelves.
Here’s how it works, from the post on Jenn’s blog:
When: Friday, November 27-Sunday, November 29
Why: Three full days off equals quality reading time!
How: Read at your leisure during the Thanksgiving weekend.
There are no rules to the weekend and no prizes. We’re hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for 2009. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit.
We’ll also be checking in on Twitter using hashtag #thankfulreading. Join in for the weekend or for only a single day. No rules, no pressure!
To sign up for Thankfully Reading Weekend, please visit the Book Blog Social Club!
I’ll be using the opportunity to work on another challenge, the Shelf Discovery Challenge (see my post about this challenge here). In this challenge, one revisits books and authors that defined our youth and teen years. These tend to be short books – perfect for a read-a-thon!
