Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be Thankfully Reading...

Happy Turkey Day, all! I'm spending my Thanksgiving with the family and cats, at home, my favorite place to be.

And I won't be shopping this weekend; I just loathe the whole Black Friday thing. I might order some books off the internetz, or shop at Etsy for Small Business Saturday. But otherwise, I'm curling up with a book.

Look at this stack I brought home from Bouchercon! I will admit, some of these are not books I would be reading if they weren't in my book bag. But I wanted to read out of my comfort zone for a change, so I'm even going for a cozy mystery with cupcakes on the front. I'll let you know how it all works out...

Happy reading, guys!

  2. Thanks, Prashant!

    Is there any such holiday in India? I always love to hear about other cultures and their customs.

    1. Fleur, as I was telling Moira over at Clothes in Books, we do have a similar holiday associated with the harvest season or festival every year, and it is celebrated differently in states in North and South India. Of course, we don't have a turkey but we have a lot of special delicacies, each distinct to the state where the festival is observed. It is a public holiday though some private sector offices are open.
