It’s hard to believe that the holidays are already upon us --- though the blustery weather this past week has certainly made it easier. As we near Thanksgiving, we at FaithfulReader.com feel fortunate that we have so much to be thankful for, including family, friends, colleagues and, of course, books! Though the season provides the perfect opportunity to show gratitude to the people around us, it’s also important to take time for prayer and self-contemplation. Fortunately, the Thanksgiving holiday break gives us just the right amount of time to refresh and regroup before diving into the hectic month of December. Although the coming months may be your busiest of the year, do take time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons --- along with a book or two!
