Writers Gotta Read, Right? Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.A.

Thanksgiving is upon us—the season for gratitude and overeating in the good old U.S. of A.

So, while you are digesting pumpkin pie and partaking of spiced cider (or perhaps something stronger), why not curl up with a good book and nourish your mind and imagination?

Here are some lists where you can find Thanksgiving-themed stories, from mysteries to children's books to romances and more… 
If all of the above doesn't satisfy your craving for Thanksgiving reading material or if you have a "don't miss this one" suggestion, send us your offerings in a comment and we shall add it to the potluck table.

Wishing all our U.S. readers a happy Thanksgiving, and wishing everyone a holiday season with many good books to read and the time to read them!

  1. This is a great reminder that we have a mind-boggling number of books from which to choose whatever is our reading pleasure. Gratitude for this privilege should extend year round because not all people enjoy this freedom.

    1. Hello Linda! Excellent observation. I shouldn't grumble about my TBR piles, because, goodness, I'm surrounded by riches! It's a good time to remember this... Thank you!
