Thankfully Reading

Thankfully Reading Weekend starts officially tomorrow, but let's get started a little early.

Thankfully Reading Weekend is hosted by Jenn at JennsBookshelves.com and celebrates the fine art of staying in and reading. I do this all the time, of course, but as the holiday season kicks off it's important to take time away from the rushing and madness and just enjoy the season.

I'll definitely be out running around this weekend, but I know there will be time to read, too.

I'm starting with The Lost Estate, a coming-of-age French classic published in the early 20th century and written by Henri Alain-Fournier, who was killed in World War 1. The French title is Le Grand Meaulnes and it came out in 1913. It appears on The Guardian's 1000 Novels Everyone Must Read as one of literature's great love stories. I'm only a few pages in but I'm enjoying its lyrical writing and rich sense of place. I'll let you know how it goes as the weekend progresses! I have two other books on deck should I finish this one soon.

Are you participating? What are you reading?

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Reading!
