My husband & I don‘t have a family, so for the past 7 years we‘ve hosted a Thanksgiving Orphans Dinner. Friends, colleagues, students, and anyone with nowhere else to go comes over for a large traditional dinner. Last year 52 people came! One thing that people love is that we do a vegan dinner. The tagged book has the best buttery garlic gravy and lentil loaf recipes! There‘s also a turkey and all of the other traditional fare but vegan rules!

Buechersuechtling Oh what a lovely idea and tradition. ❤️ To be honest, I‘d be heavily afraid to cook and host 52 people but I think the idea is wonderful so I send you positive vibes good success‼️🤗 19h
Addison_Reads Mmmm...lentil loaf. That's part of our vegan Thanksgiving too with a mushroom gravy. 14h
Come-read-with-me @Buechersuechtling Thank you! I tell my guests it is not the quality of the food but the love I put into it! Not many of them believe that but they are all very kind. Truly appreciate your positive wishes! 💗 12h

Toil & Trouble: A Memoir | Augusten Burroughs
post image
Pickpick

This was a laugh out-loud read for me. When Burroughs hits his stride there isn‘t anyone better to make people feel good about the weirdness we all face in life! I‘m still not convinced that he‘s a witch, but he presents a pretty compelling case as to why we should believe he is one! #nfnov. #TIL that he legally changed his name to Augusten Burroughs.

This is a book that my husband gave me many years ago when I was facing a very challenging time in my life. I was inspired by @Eggs to reread this amazing collection of essays by Dr. Remen. She offers insights about the importance of generosity, kindness of spirit, and self acceptance. The essays are short but powerful. An excellent read. #NFNov #TIL Self care is always important - be as kind to yourself as you are to others.

This a really unique twist on a crime story. A collection of four “essays” titled The Detective, The Victim, The Defender, and The Killer are presented in precise prose that quickly moves to the heart of each character. The women discussed all represent different figures in four separate crimes that span decades. It wasn‘t what I was expecting but I enjoyed it. 👍🏻 #ITL that in 1910 Alice Wells was the 1st female police officer in the USA.

Catch and Kill | Ronan Farrow
post image
Pickpick

This book offers another examination of instances of sexual abuse by people in power that were then covered-up or killed by various media outlets. It was repulsing to read about how media is often complicit in covering up the crimes of some people in order to get a “better” story. Farrow writes with an honest eye and tempered voice, which makes this type of book even more compelling. Good, but I preferred “She Said.” #TIL Corruption is everywhere

The Nanny | Gilly Macmillan
post image
Panpan

This book was a challenge for me. I was unable to connect with the characters and found the plot to be somewhat disjointed. There were moments where MacMillan really hit the mark for me, but overall, in my opinion, this story fell flat. Perhaps it was because there were multiple narrators and the time frame shifted quite frequently, but I never found the pace of the book. The basic premise of the story was interesting but not great execution.

This was a book I discovered on Litsy and I am so glad I did. It‘s a sad but accurate description of the loss of tribal land/ interests by people more interested in wealth than preserving the culture and rightful heritage of the people living on the land. Crimes committed against a largely defenseless community - it was horrifying. I learned about the lengths people will go to in order to secure wealth. #NFNov, #TIL

The words of Shel Silverstein always bring a smile to my face. He is truly a genius and we are so lucky to have his gift of words forever.

When you‘ve put a book down three times to cry before page 33 you know that Albom is at his Tuesdays with Morris best. This is a heart aching memoir about what it means to be family and how the bonds of love can hold fast no matter what. China is a unique and joyful child who leaves her fingerprints on your heart. This was an amazing love story to this strong, funny, courageous girl. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #NFNov. #TIL About the life of children in Haiti.

#NFNov is really pushing me to read books that address “uncomfortable” ideas. ‘White Fragility‘ falls squarely in the uncomfortable category. This is scholarly examination of what implicit racism really looks like and how it is endemic in society. The concepts discussed raw, confrontational, and a clarion call for taking a fearless and naked look at your own behaviour and how it impacts others. It rocked me to my core. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Come-read-with-me @Come-read-with-me #TIL. The term ‘White woman‘s tears.” I never realized the cultural impact of this. 2w

Wow!!! This is an amazing analysis of implicit and hidden bias in America, with an emphasis on the relationship between law enforcement and members of the black community. Part academic analysis, part autobiography Eberhardt allows the reader experience life from the perspective of people who live in a world where even minor incidents can prove to be a threat to their lives.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Dang! I just noticed the packaging, I'll have to be more careful next time. How does that even happen? 3w
Come-read-with-me @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego as There was an apology attached to the package from the Postal Service (US not Canada Post) saying it was completely their fault. Your package wrapping skills are perfection! 3w

As my journey into the world of quilting/sewing continues, it seems that I really do learn something new everyday. I now know how to make something called “corner triangles” - and it doesn‘t involve using glue or a stapler which are my typical go -to sewing tools. #NFNov. #TIL

Since I am (slowly and painfully) learning to sew, I thought this would be a great book to kick off my #NFNov reading. Fisher, the brains and talent behind www.fishmuseumandcircus.com provides detailed instructions on how to release your inner maker! These projects are quickish and Fisher breaks everything into chewable chunks so even a novice like me can feel accomplished. This was a great read as I sat at the vet with my sick Schnauzer. #NFNov

This was a good, but somewhat predictable story with a great ending. The story wasn‘t brilliant, but it was compelling and well written. The characters were relatable and the relationships rang true. Then there was the ending..... oh the ending. It was written with such tenderness and provided a glimpse into the profound love between a mother and daughter. I was in tears 😭

Eggs I agree with your review and am still glad I read it💗 The conclusion was 😭 3w

A nicely paced mystery where every character wound up getting what he or she deserved. The story is told in two parts, each from the perspective of one character. The characters are not terribly complex and there were aspects of the plot that were a bit predictable, but the author dropped a few well placed red herrings to keep the story interesting. It was a quick read but a great way to pass some time curled up in a comfy chair. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

The Garden of Vegan: How It All Vegan Again! | Sarah Kramer, Tanya Barnard

Two simply yummy vegan cookbooks. These ladies know how to put the sizzle in animal-free eating with hearty, simple, and utterly satisfying meals. For people who hesitate to cook vegan food these books will help you be instantly successful. I‘m starting to think about preparing a vegan (American) Thanksgiving and both of these books provide wonderful options. Additionally, the authors are Canadian so I‘m extra happy! 🇨🇦

Chrissyreadit What is your favorite recipe from these books? 3w
Come-read-with-me @Chrissyreadit Is it cheating to say all of them??? In HIAV it‘s Classic Spinich Lasagna and creamy coconut pie. In GoV Sarah Haamer‘s Stuffed Mushrooms and Portobello Mushroom Bake. And then on page 2 I like........ 🤣 Thanks for asking! 3w

This “Ideal Book Club” was inspired by @LibrarianRyan - I thought doing a “top 12” for preschoolers would be fun. So here is my best attempt at #myidealbookclub for 3-6 yos (and for those of us who just like reading kids books!!) Thanks again to @monalyisha for this great book club challenge!

Come-read-with-me @LibrarianRyan It was your great school-aged and YA club selections that inspired me! 3w

Kevin the Unicorn is having a BAD day. He got off on the wrong hoof, had to drive clam juice, and was chased by seagulls. Even though unicorns are supposed to be happy and sparkly all of the time, Kevin finally gets angry and quickly learns that everyone has bad days. A nice little lesson about how to bounce back from the trials you can face in life. Unicorn obsessed nieces approved! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

David Wiesner is a spectacular talent who provides a rich and inviting world of illustrations for readers of all age. It‘s hard to choose “favourite” books by this author/illustrator because all of his work is amazing. I have never met a child who wasn‘t captivated by Wiesner‘s work. His wordless books are simply without compare. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a gorgeously illustrated book about life on a reef. The creatures inhabiting this beautiful landscape are threatened by a greedy Groper who floods the reef with toxic waste. The text is appealing to both read and have read to you. The illustrations are dynamic and filled with sumptuous detail. A perfect book for children starting to read longer stories but still love the visual appeal of a picture book! Graeme Base at his best! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
