11/26/08 — Quitting work early today. My daughters, Kelsey and Amy, will be arriving for Thanksgiving and there’s much to do to get ready. Fun!
Given that the day after Thanksgiving is generally considered to be the biggest shopping day of the year in the USA, I can’t help but throw a pitch out for a certain type of gift with a paraphrase from author Christopher Morley:
“When you give someone a book, you don’t give just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue – you give them a whole new life. Love and friendship and humor and ships at sea by night – there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.”
Happy Thanksgiving, and happy reading!
