Next, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Great holiday! What's better than sharing gratitude and food?
We are celebrating with extended family and are mostly packed up and ready to go. I think I've made a terrible error in planning though -- I have no book. Shoot! Vacations are one of the best opportunities for me to read and I realize this morning that I'm not prepared. Of course, with two young children and a newborn, I may not get all that much time to read, but with lots of relatives around, I'll likely get a few blissful, peaceful minutes here and there. Perhaps I will grab a novel my husband just finished or read one of our relatives' magazines. I'll survive, but next trip I want to plan better for reading. We are going to Jamaica next year for a family wedding and I need to make books for the trip a bigger priority.
(The boys will have plenty of books for the trip, it will be hard to keep it to just a few that fit in the suitcases.)
Here's a book I wish I had on this trip -- 2 Kids and Tired Book Reviews shares what looks like a very interesting book about First Families. Looks like great post-election season reading. I'm also very interested in this book about Lang Lang featured at The Well Read Child. I didn't know who Lang Lang was before reading the review but it sounds like a great book and I'm particularly interested in piano since we just brought one into our home.
Have a wonderful, blessed, and tasty Thanksgiving! I hope you get in some good reading too.
Karen and family
