Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. Can you believe it? I’m pleased to announce that I will once again be hosting Thankfully Reading Weekend, November 27-30! Want to avoid the crowds & shopping on Black Friday? Plan on spending a nice, quiet holiday at home? Join us!

Just what is this Thankfully Reading Weekend I speak of?  Here are the details:

There are no rules to the weekend, we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for the year. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit. If you think you can join in, grab the button  and add your sign up post to the link-up below. If you don’t have a blog, you can sign up the comments or sign up using a link to your Twitter account or Faceboook page!

Want to host a challenge? Email me directly at

We’ll also be checking in on Twitter using hashtag #thankfullyreading. Join in for the weekend or for only a single day. No rules, no pressure!

    I would love to join. I don’t have a blog. I’ll be sitting by a pool for the whole weekend!

    What a cool idea! I hate the Black Friday nonsense, so this is perfect. I’m planning on buying books by new (to me) mystery authors at Bouchercon next week, so this will be a great way to enjoy them.

    Why of course I’d been in on a challenge that involves tackling more of my TBR and being a shut in on the craziest shopping weekend of the year!

    We will be having a lot of family in town that weekend, but I’m still planning on joining in! I have a feeling I will need a few reading breaks from all the chaos!

    LOVE this idea! Unfortunately my recent track record with reading challenges (or reading in general, for that matter) has been miserable. Maybe this is just the right time – and just the relaxed atmosphere I need to get back on track.

    No bling or website, but I’m totally in. At least as far as I can read that weekend. Hubs works Friday and I’m hoping for some calm, so we’ll see how it goes. Will follow here and also tweet. 🙂

    This is my first time participating in something like this. Sounds fun and I plan on going no where on Black Friday so this will be perfect.

    I’m so glad you were there to answer my question today on Twitter! I can’t wait to spend some quality time reading next weekend!

    My goal for the holiday weekend is to listen to a ton of audiobook hours while I clean house, so that’s how I’ll join this year. Thanks for hosting, Jenn!

    I’ll be joining in via Twitter (@bksonthetable) — I’m not going to blog about it because I posted today and will be posting again Friday, and I think I would drive my subscribers (most of whom are not bloggers) nuts if I posted any more than that. But I love the idea and will be reading a lot this holiday weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!
