This week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Would you take a book with you when you go to your family’s Thanksgiving gathering/dinner?
Absolutely! Though I should clarify by saying that it would be very unlikely I would actually read it. I just bring a book everywhere, all the time. And there might be a suitable reading opportunity somewhere in a day-long Thanksgiving gathering.
In recent years I’ve fallen into a semi-tradition of reading Terry Pratchett over Thanksgiving weekend. I think it started when I read Hogfather one year (a little early, as that’s his Christmas satire, but it was almost seasonal) and now I’ve been carrying it on just for fun. And perhaps it’s appropriate–laughter in general and Terry Pratchett in particular are something to be grateful for.
Happy Thanksgiving, all my American readers–and a lovely day to all the international ones too! I am grateful you are here. ❤

Ooh, interesting question! I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I always do it at Christmas. My mum and Gran are readers too, so it doesn’t feel as rude when there are three of us!
I will be home on Thanksgiving Day this year so I’ll have the books I’m currently reading close at hand. 🙂 Whether I will actually read either of them remains to be seen, though.
