Officially the event, hosted by Jenn of the blog Jenn’s Bookshelves, began on Wednesday and runs through Sunday. Unofficially, I began this past weekend as I was/am off until Monday.
How will/did you celebrate Thanksgiving?
My wife, who is a 911 dispatcher, worked this morning, so she prepared part of Thanskgiving dinner earlier in the week. We had some last night to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary and will have some again after she sleeps a little. Right now, as I draft this, I’m watching the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon, and we might watch some more later after she awakes.
What’s in your TBR pile of the weekend?
I started with listening to a bit of Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story, written and read by Bono. Also on my list are Paul Newman’s autobiography, The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man and the Serge Storms series by Tim Dorsey, of which I’m on the 14th: When Elves Attack. Apropos or not, the latter is a Christmas tale of sorts.
How much time do you think you’ll have for reading?
A lot. However, will I use it to read all the time? Today, not so much. Tomorrow, a little more and hopefully Saturday and Sunday, even more.
What book are you starting out with?
Are you reading print, ebooks, or audio?
In addition to listening to Bono’s memoir, I’ll be reading Newman’s autobiography in print and Dorsey’s book on ebook.
What books will you be talking about during Thanksgiving dinner?
My wife and I probably will be talking about whatever MST3K episode is on at the moment. If you’d like to tune in, here’s a link (you even can rewind and it makes great background music):
So how about y’all? How are you spending Thanksgiving?
