Ottavia @ Novels & NonFiction and Jackie @ Death by Tsundoku are hosting their first ever Thanksgiving Readathon!
Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Belgium, I do think the whole concept is amazing. Apart from that, we all know that I love readathons, so…
Note that you can win a prize as well, but that’s U.S. only.
Dates: Wednesday, November 22nd – Sunday, November 26th 2017
You can do any or all of the below:
∼ Read as many books as you can in those 5 days.
∼ Use the hashtag #ThanksgivingReadathon to share your participation and progress on Twitter and other social media sites.
∼ Publish a Sign-Up Post between Monday, November 20th and Wednesday, November 22nd with your readathon TBR and goals.
Bonus: Share your families holiday traditions if you’d like.
∼ Publish a Wrap-Up Post on Monday, November 27th sharing your readathon victories.
Bonus: Share what you are thankful for this year.
I’m honestly going to focus on reaching my Remember November-goals during this read-a-thon. I’ve been making progress, but I’d like to put some more “mission accomplished!” on my wrap-up, ha!
Also.. My copy of Heir of Fire finally arrived the other week and I can’t wait to dive into those books again.. They seem perfect for a read-a-thon.. So, maybe…

And if I can’t control myself…
BONUS: FAMILY TRADITIONS DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Since we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I’m going to focus on Christmas even though it’s still over a month before we get there.
Because of my mom working in a retirement home and doing night shifts, she’s only at home on one of the end of the year-holidays. This year it’s December 31st. The day my mom doesn’t have to work is always the day we go over to her place to celebrate.
The other days are filled with family and friends. So we don’t really have any fixed traditions on that part.
The one tradition that I do try to keep is setting up my Christmas tree. We had a real one last year but… Let’s just say that we’re going with a fake one this time. I always try to have as many gifts as possible beneath it. Not only family, but also friends. I guess Christmas is my way of saying thank you to everybody, instead of having Thanksgiving?
Something I also like doing during that period is go to Christmas markets. When I was younger we always went to Germany for those. I think we might do that this year as well, although we don’t have a city in mind yet. Maybe Frankfurt? We’re also planning on going to the markets in our own capital, Brussels! So weird that I haven’t been to those yet while it isn’t even that far…
Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? What are some of your traditions?
Are you going to join this read-a-thon?!
