It's Monday and it's almost Thanksgiving!


Hey fellow bibliophiles. What have you been up to? This week has been a bit crazy. We went to a wedding and then out to dinner with another couple and then we celebrated my aunt's birthday. And then of course, there is all of the usual work and David going to school and church and laundry and life.

I'm excited about two of my sisters coming home from college for Thanksgiving and having a few days off this week - I think we all need it! We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at my grandmother's with twenty other people or so. I'm making pumpkin crunch cake. Yum. What are your plans for Thursday?

    1. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Pumpkin Crunch Cake is pretty yummy - part pumpkin, part yellow cake and then you cover it with butter and nuts. :)

  4. How do you like the Paul Auster novel? I've only read one of his books and I found it a little bit too "heady." I'd like to give him another chance though!

    1. I really liked his book Oracle Night, but this one wowed me a bit less. I think it had less to do with his writing, and more to do with the fact that everyone and their mother is writing an end of the world novel now.

  6. I'm always jealous of Thanksgiving as we don't have it here and a holiday would be nice about now! Have fun :)
