Thanksgiving is just around the corner for our American readers, and with the deliciously long weekend coming up, we thought you might be looking for something to read. Thanks to the Hub readers and bloggers who participated in The Hub’s very first photo challenge, we have some terrific ideas for you!

Earlier this month, we asked you to show us what you’re planning to read over the Thanksgiving break, and we very much appreciate the enthusiastic response. It’s so much fun to see what’s in everyone’s to-read pile, and it gives us some inspiration for good books to curl up with this weekend.

Big thanks to everyone who sent in their pictures, and to Hub Advisory Board member Carli Spina, who spearheaded the challenge!

  •  From Hub blogger Geri Diorio, who says, “I’ve been reading one fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm each night before bed, and Philip Pullman will continue to tell me a bedtime story over the holiday break! I was lucky enough to get an Advanced Reading Copy of Susan Cooper’s new book Ghost Hawk at BEA back in June but have not had a chance to read it. This long weekend will be that chance. And finally, I splurged on some comics – the first collection of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files – for my tablet. Those will be nice reading breaks I can grab in between visiting relatives.”


  • From Hub blogger Laura Perenic:


  • From Hub blogger Faythe Arredondo, who’s looking forward to “finally” diving into this book:


  •  From Hub blogger Jessica Miller:


  • From Hub blogger Carla Land, who has undoubtedly captured the hearts of fellow Doctor Who fans with her choice here:

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our first photo challenge! We hope you’ve gotten some good ideas for books to add to your to-read piles. Happy Thanksgiving, and happy reading!
