Shopping the Day After Thanksgiving? Jane Smiley’s New Novel!

 Actually, for us, today IS Thanksgiving, as we shamelessly changed the day to accommodate our own needs. I spent yesterday leisure making some of our favorite Thanksgiving entrees, all of which are ready to be popped into the oven when we get hungry today. 

I have never shopped on Black Friday - our tradition leans to going for a local hike or simply walking out with the herd, but I did read emails this morning and when I saw that Jane Smiley has a new novel coming out, I scurried to a new tab in my browser and looked it up.

It’s a novel about a race horse named Perestroika who lives on a track in France and escapes one day to visit Paris. Okay, Jane, you won me over. I’ve now shopped on Black Friday and pre-ordered this alluring new book for myself.

Jane Smiley is a prize-winning author and she is a horsewoman. I’d check this one out if you need an engaging, horsey read. It’ll be extra good if you also love Paris. 

Read more and order here.

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving today! I never shop on Black Friday either but I'm willing to break my habit for this book. Thanks for letting us know about it.

We had a quiet holiday. Had all the kids and grandkids on a Zoom session. It was nice to see and talk to everyone but still not the same as having everyone together. Hope you had a great holiday too.

We’ve had a good weekend - just the 5 of us. Thank goodness for Zoom!
