2019 #ThankfullyReading Weekend: Day 2 Report

After not getting any reading in yesterday for this extended weekend’s Thankfully Reading Weekend, today I did get a little in toward the end of the day. I continued reading The Lord God Made Them All, the fourth book in the All Creatures Great and Small series (at least in the order here in the U.S.), which I started a couple of months ago but haven’t finished yet. I slowly am making my way through the series (the first couple a reread, the rest new to me) that I started last year.

Most of the day, though, was spent with my my wife celebrating Thanksgiving here at home since she is going back to work tonight (midnight shift into Friday morning) after being off from work since last week. We had turkey and all the fixings. Well, I did anyway. Since she is a vegan, she didn’t have turkey but a “Tofurkey” ham, but all our fixings were the same: sweet potato and green bean casseroles, and pumpkin pie.

As planned, we watched our traditional Thanksgiving movies Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Pieces of April. We also watched Home for the Holidays, one of my wife’s favorite Thanksgiving movies.

After she went to sleep for a few hours, I finally was able to settle down and read:

A little kneading before #thankfullyreading

Tomorrow, I still plan to start a reread of Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. However, I might not get to reading Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography by Eric Idle as I initially had planned this weekend. For now, I just plan to go back and forth between The Lord God Made Them All and Good Omens. We’ll see how that goes.

Stay tuned. I’ll be back to report on my progress tomorrow night, Saturday and Sunday nights too.

  1. I haven’t made much progress in Defending Jacob. This morning my focus was on laundry/dishes/showering/etc. Now I’ve wandered off to read blogs while waiting for Mom’s shower aide to arrive. No point settling in with a book until she’s come and gone.

    Happy Reading!

  2. Hopefully you enjoy Good Omens again! I sure did! I, too, am getting off to a slow start on my readathon, and today I seem to be more interested in catching up on blog comments than reading so far. But in my defense, it is hard reading with a baby crawling around getting into stuff. Typing responses on my phone doesn’t take as much concentration.

  3. I’ve been unofficially #ThankfullyReading. I finished the fourth book in the Wheel of Time series, and started reading With the Fire on High. I’ll be starting the fifth book of WoT when I go to bed.

      1. Well, I didn’t officially join because I though Ash would be here and I’d be too busy spending time with her. But Eric has the (actual) flu, so she stayed at school with some friends. Can I officially join late (tomorrow)? If not, I’ll still check out Deb’s bingo card contest. Thanks!

        And yes, we still had a decent Thanksgiving. Eric is feeling a little better—enough that he was able to stay up all day. We were all supposed to go to a friend’s for dinner, but I was afraid to bring germs there even though I’m not sick. So she brought us leftovers! Yay!

        1. Oh sorry to hear about Eric and by extension Ash. I think you probably still could join over at Jenn’s blog. It’s a pretty loose event. And Deb’s bingo contest isn’t officially connected with Thankfully Reading. Just a thing Deb did for fun… And leftovers, yum. Now that’s got me thinking about going to get some. 🍗
