BOOKISH THOUGHTS -- GRATITUDE -- NOV. 19
In the past several days, I have been reminded of the blessings of the season. Not only do I enjoy looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I also recall my firstborn child, born on November 17, 1966. His birth that year also came on a Thursday, and he arrived a few months after my college graduation.
In celebration of his birth, and commemorating many pictorial moments since then, I wrote about him at my Thursday Potpourri post.
I also enjoy recalling my first love of books, instilled in me very early in life. And my visits to the village library only reinforced that love.
Nowadays, as I blog and review my books on the various sites, I am happy that I can now revisit the bookish thoughts found in these reviews.
I've also been rereading my latest WIP, Interior Designs, and posted an excerpt from the prequel to this book—Embrace the Whirlwind—at my Creative Moments blog.
As for my reading, I recently finished a book I really enjoyed that is on blog tour. My review for the book will be posted here on November 28, with a guest blog from the author on November 29. Watch for my review and post of The Accidental Activist, by Alon Shalev.
I'd love to know about some of your bookish thoughts...or the things for which you're grateful.
