Thankfully Reading Weekend 2010

Next Thursday, I will be elbow-high in Turkey and all the trimmings, and I plan to welcome almost 20 guests to my dinner table.  Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday.  What's not to love about a holiday based on family, food, and being thankful for our blessings?

I am adding a new tradition to my Thanksgiving weekend...

Thankfully Reading

Thankfully Reading is the 2nd annual read-a-thon hosted by Jenn's Bookshelves, Beth Fish Reads and Devourer of Books (three of my favorite book blogs - go check them out!)  They took the long Thanksgiving weekend and turned it into a wonderful excuse to do an "obscene amount of reading." 

After busy weeks of preparation, cooking, cleaning, and serving, I can't wait to find a quiet spot and catch up on a whole lot of reading!  There will be mini-challenges too, but no pressure.  This is all about no-pressure reading.

Maybe I can fill in some more blanks on my Fall Into Reading challenge. 

There are no rules except to read, so if you want to join in, follow the links above and on Twitter at #thankfulreading

On a side note, I had a conversation with The Man the other night.  It went something like this:

Alison:  Thanksgiving weekend, all my friends are doing their Christmas shopping. 
Do you know what I want to do?
The Man:  Read?
Alison:  That's right.  Read.

He's a good man.

I love the idea of the weekend, but we'll probably have company so I won't be joining in the fun. I won't be shopping either!

I am really looking forward to this event - what a great idea! I am hoping I can close in on some of my 2010 challenge reads during the weekend.
