Happy Saturday Night. I hope everyone had a great week and those who celebrated Thanksgiving had a great day and couple days off. We had a lovely Thanksgiving at our house with daughter and her family and another nice visit today at their house helping them trim their tree. I have tried to rest up the last few days and I do feel better, though still not quite 100%.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
The answers were fun -- Although many of us are tempted by hobbies or sports we read about, few of us actually do try. Several people did acknowledge that they tried cooking or baking after reading about recipes in books. :-) There were a couple of brave souls, like Linda Kwolek who would try if she had items handy, or Monica, who might actually try a sport or playing music after being inspired by reading.
This was another week of lots of thankfulness - again mostly family, friends, pets and health.A couple of you shared nice comments about traditions that you enjoy, like Jane putting the tree up right after Thanksgiving.

WEEK #76 Questions
Q1. Margaret asks: Do you prefer a large paperback or a small paperback??
I'm not sure if Margaret means trade size books as larger paperback or means larger in page numbers. I don't think I have a preference between Trade size books or 'mass' market size although I guess a mass market size fits into my purse easier. As to page length -- my favorite size is 300 to 375 although shorter books are nice for a quick read. I think twice before I pick up a book over 400 pages as I know it will take longer which impacts my weekly scheduling. So I know I have missed some good books that are long. ;-0 Sometimes I will listen to longer books which is what I did with the Harry Potter series.

Q2. My question this week: Did you do any BLACK FRIDAY shopping and if so how early did you go out??
A: I didn't originally plan to shop on Friday, except online. However my DH and I found some items at a local liquidator shop and the owner said she would be having a sale and would give us a discount on Friday. So we went out at 9:30 Friday morning to shop there and stopped in at Goodwill to look for a flannel jacket for my DH as one of his was wearing thin. I was glad we stopped as they had a discount on Audio books and I picked up some for my grandchildren and a couple for me! Fortunately, for us, there were no big crowds at either store.
