The Girl in The Tower by Katherine Arden

Happy Turkey Day!

To all celebrating this Turkey day, Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Weekend!

Thanksgiving Fun Facts
*Thanksgiving is the reason for TV dinners! In 1953, Swanson had so much extra turkey (260 tons) that a salesman told them they should package it onto aluminum trays with other sides like sweet potatoes — and the first TV dinner was born!

*The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 with 400 employees marching from Convent Ave to 145th street in New York City. No large balloons were at this parade, as it featured only live animals from Central Park Zoo.

*How did the tradition of watching football on Thanksgiving start? The NFL started the Thanksgiving Classic games in 1920 and since then the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys have hosted games on Turkey Day. In 2006, a third game was added with different teams hosting.

*Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's first meal in space after walking on the moon was foil packets with roasted turkey.

*The heaviest turkey on record, according to the Guinness Book of Records, weighs 86 pounds.

*Campbell's soup created green bean casserole for an annual cookbook 50 years ago. It now sells $20 million worth of cream of mushroom soup.

This Week's Reads

by Jasmine Becket-Griffith (DeviantArt)

Secondborn by Amy A Bartol
**I was not familiar with this book when I was it on our libraries shelf. This was another cover grab. I really like the colors and the simpleness of the pic. Add in Dystopia, which I haven't read much of this year, and I'm looking forward to this one.

Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh
**Another dystopia here. I'm not sure about this one but I grabbed it as a just in case. It's a kind of military dystopia, which anything military is hit or miss for me.
