A blogger friend from Twitter  is holding a Thankfully Reading Weekend event on her blog (http://www.jennsbookshelves.com/) and this post is my sign up/kick off post.

 

First, to all my fellow Americans, Happy Thanksgiving; however you choose to celebrate the holiday weekend, I hope you are all healthy and happy. My husband and I are going to see Alter Bridge, our favorite modern rock band, at the O2 arena tomorrow night (kids are having a sleep over at my friend's house). Since we won't have the kids with us, we agreed to try the Brazilian BBQ place in the O2 food court - definitely not traditional Turkey Day food, but I love to try new cuisines.

 

The rest of the weekend will be spent with the family hanging out at home. I picked up Homeland Season One at the library yesterday, so I have a little tv watching to break up the reading time. I don't do Black Friday. AT. ALL.

 

To all my non-American friends, I hope you have a good weekend and enjoy some holiday shopping/experiences.

 

My TBR pile for the read-a-thon is all the library books I borrowed last week, along with new additions DC Bombshells Vol 1 and 2 (came in the mail this week) and Give Us the Ballot by Ari Berman (came through ILL, so thanks Aviano AB, Italy). I started Busted this morning and am at the 50% mark. Yeah, the review on this book is not going to be pretty.

 

I will try to post (if BookLikes is working) my progress throughout the event.
