You’ve made it to day three! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed your experience thus far! Today’s challenge is about family memories, specifically those that relate to books. Thanksgiving is all about families and the bonds/traditions we form. Do you have any special family memories/traditions involving books? It doesn’t necessarily have to revolve around the holidays.
I have oodles of bookish memories, mainly because my grandmother was a librarian. We would spend summers with my grandparents and I loved the time spent in that quiet, small town library. Now, I’m forging new traditions with my own children. We’re about to embark upon a read-along of The Hobbit to prepare for the movie release. While I’m hopeful my boys enjoy it as much as I did, I’ll be understanding if they don’t.
So..either in the comments below or a post on your blog, facebook page, etc, tell us about your favorite bookish memory/tradition. One winner will be selected and, in honor of Small Business Saturday, will win a $25 gift card to Novel Places Bookstore. This giftcard can be used online (or buy calling the store directly) so don’t worry if you aren’t local to the bookstore.
Remember to take part in the other Thankfully Reading Weekend Challenges! These are open all weekend for those unable to participate earlier in the week:
