It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow here in the U.S., and this is my all-time favorite holiday. It’s better than Christmas as it doesn’t have all that baggage associated with it. Just meet with friends and/or family (or not), and eat some good food together. Nice.
I also see it as a good time to remember the (many) good things that are in my life. So many to choose from – that’s a great “problem” to have!
Browsing through some of the book blogs that I visit, I came across this meme (thanks to Cornflower and Books Please): My Day in Books. I did it a while back, and thought it would be fun with a more recent stash of books. The task is to complete the sentences using the titles of books that you have read this year. Here is what I ended up with:
I began the day by A Study in Scarlet
before breakfasting on Roast Beef, Medium
and admiring Mr. Bridge.
On my way to work I saw The Edwardian Lady,
and walked by A Sight for Sore Eyes
to avoid Tess of the D’Urbervilles
but I made sure to stop at Vanity Fair.
In the office, my boss said, Mustn’t Grumble
and sent me to research The City of Djinns.
At lunch with Daddy Long-Legs,
I noticed Lady Audley’s Secret
in The Room with a View
greatly enjoying Perfect Meringues.
Then on the journey home, I contemplated The Odds
because I have The Storm at the Door
and am drawn to My Cousin Rachel.
Settling down for the evening in The L-Shaped Room,
I studied The Gentle Art of Domesticity
by The Power of Habit
before saying goodnight to The Age of Innocence.
