Book Blogger Hop 19/11/10

Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books
"Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!"
Being English and living in England I can’t answer the second part of the question as we don’t do Thanksgiving over here. That makes us sound miserable and ungrateful, doesn’t it? We don’t have a Thanksgiving holiday here, although in my first year at university some of the American students put on a Thanksgiving evening, which I seem to remember involved eating some kind of pumpkin and marshmallow concoction and watching a Peanuts cartoon.

I am thankful for some very good friends and a family who love me just the way I am without expecting me to be something else. For storytelling in all its forms, written or visual, which offers escape and exploration, as well as a way to understand the world and life.


  1. Stopping by via the Hop! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Haha! I loved the way you described what the Americans did. The Peanuts cartoon is a tradition for us too! And the food is nasty if you ask me! lol
    What great things you named to be grateful for. Storytelling is amazing.

  3. Visiting from the hop - Thanksgiving next week might be a US holiday but we are all thankful!

    Love your memory from college.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. I found your blog on the hops and look forward to following along and hope you may wish to do the same! I just posted my first book review and hope to do many more! I am a mum to three little ones and we are in the process of adopting twins from Ethiopia so we'll see how much time I have to review :) Love your blog and your writing!

  5. Hopping through. Peanuts cartoons are classic for Thanksgiving. I prefer their Halloween and Xmas specials though.

  6. Your newest follower! I, too, love how you described American's Thanksgiving. Very funny! We do throw on quite the feast with turkey and pumpkin pie!


Come and say hello! I don't bite (well, except at the full moon...)
