Happy Saturday Night. Has it been a good week for everyone? I did get some antibiotics this week so hopefully I can put this "crud" (the diagnosis - LOL) behind me. But I didn't get bed rest as the doctor ordered since I had to get up at 3am Friday to drive to Tallahassee for a plane to South Florida. I had a deposition to cover late in the day and then flew back this morning. So I'm tired now. But on the positive side - I got some extra reading time on the plane. :-)
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Seems about half of us like anthologies, especially for meeting new authors or for a quicker reading time. However, several of you mentioned you weren't so big on anthologies as you prefer longer stories.
I like all the things we are thankful for! Family is a BIG one for many of us. (I hope nrlymrtl's broken foot is healing.) I particularly liked how Sarah phrased one of her thanks: "I am thankful that I have opportunities to pursue my passions, and not just fight to survive." Nice wording and nice sentiment.

WEEK #75 Questions
Q1. Miki asks: When you are reading a book in which the character has a special activity or hobby (a sport, knitting etc) does that make you want to try this activity??
I may find activities interesting but I rarely try them. What? Take away time from reading? I don't think so. LOL. Although I have to admit I sometimes wish I had a talent for art - I know I do not.
