Books to Read This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving. The last few breaths of autumn before the first snows of winter. A renewal of thankfulness for the greatest gift of all.

Here's a few of my Thanksgiving season favorites:

Molly's Pilgrim
We still read this to each other on Thanksgiving. A touching reminder of where we came from and what we should work towards for our children.

An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving
I love Louisa May Alcott's world. There's nothing else that has the ability to take me back to times long ago with authenticity and tenderness. The movie adaption is also a family must-watch for Thanksgiving Night.

Blood on the River: Jamestown 1607
Not really about Thanksgiving and not really about the Pilgrims. So why am I listing it? It's one of the best books I've read about what the New World was like, from the view point of a character based an actual boy who was part of Jamestown. 

One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
There's no better book to inspire thankfulness than the beauty of truth Ann Voskamp captures.

This made me feel all warm and cozy. I am ready to curl up on the couch and read!

Love you,
