During each holiday I like to have something relevant to read. Don't you? Spooky books around Halloween, Christmas themed novels for the holidays, etc. Recently I realized that I've never read a Thanksgiving novel - in fact I've never even looked for one or heard of any. But there are novels for just about anything and anyone so I did a little search and found ten of the highest rated Thanksgiving themed novels on Amazon. But with Thanksgiving being next week, you probably won't be able to order a paperback or two and receive them in time for the holiday- so e-books are the way to go! I hope you enjoy my list and find something worth gobbling up! Have fun!
