Booksgiving, part 4!

Four years ago this very day I decided to give away 30 copies of my books to people who maybe hadn’t been able to pick one up yet.  I gave them out quite quickly but then lots of other people were like, “I WANT TO GIVE BOOKS TO PEOPLE” and suddenly people were buying each other books and sharing their favorites and adding to their lists of what to read and listening to others about what book they really HAD to read this year and it was fucking incredible.  Honestly the only thing that would make it better would be if we all had otters to bathe, but I can’t provide otters so it’s BYODO.  (Bring Your Own Dirty Otter)  That gives us something to aim for in the future, I guess.

We called the whole thing “Booksgiving” and have celebrated it every year since and this year is no exception.  SO.  Here’s what you do if you want a book.  Make a brand new wishlist with the one book that you want (and make sure that you assign a shipping address to it because otherwise it won’t work) and leave a link in the comments.  I’ll pop in and send a copy of Furiously Happy, or Let’s Pretend This Never Happened or YOU ARE HERE: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds to 30 lucky people.

If you’ve already read all of those then feel free to chose a different book.  Depending on how much I have left (the books are different prices) I’ll try to send other books as well.

The only rule is ONE BOOK PER PERSON ONLY ON YOUR LIST, with the exception being if you have a child and want to add a book for them too.

If you want to share your favorite book you’ve read recently in the comments that would be awesome.  Or if you wrote a book and want to pimp it out then go ahead.  And if you want to buy a book anonymously for a stranger just check through the comments.  A few books I’ve really loved this month are My Sister, the Serial Killer, The Woman Inside: A Novel, and The Hazel Wood.

Click here for a quick run-down of how to make a new wishlist (Don’t forget the step about adding your address to this specific wishlist!) and when you’re done just leave a comment with a link to your wishlist.  (If you don’t live in America just add that info in the comment so it’s easier to search for people in your area).  Make sure that the book you select is available for Prime shipping and isn’t from a 3rd party seller or a used bookstore because those can’t be shipped to wish lists.

If you decide to gift someone with a book just find a wishlist that has a book on it and buy it.  When you check out select the person’s wishlist address or registry address (You’ll just see their name and city, but not a whole address for privacy reasons).  If they don’t have an address they forgot to add it so delete the book from your cart and try another.

Now, let’s go book shopping!  (PS. This is the best pick-up line in the history of the world.)

  1. Last year someone bought books for my daughter and me. This year I’ll buy books for someone else. Happy Booksgiving!

  2. Oh I have books to recommend! I love Mira Grant. Her NewsFlesh series is amazing. Think political thriller set post zombie uprising.

    (Love Mira Grant. ~ Jenny)

  3. I lost my dream job yesterday because my RA was flaring and I couldn’t get there safely on transit. It was my first day and I ended up sobbing on regional rail. I’m on so much medicine now, but may be sad for a bit.

    Help my bad mood.

    (Looks like someone beat me to it. Sending you such love. RA is such a bastard. ~ Jenny)

  4. I recently discovered books by Brandon Sanderson and I’ve spent WAY too much time staying up at night reading them. Start with The Final Empire, first of the Mistborn series. Or, if you’re not afraid of a hefty tome and a series that’s not finished yet, pick up The Way of Kings. Fantasy at its best!

  5. This is such a cool project, Jenny. Thank you so much for always taking such good care of your fans. Your books have gotten me through a lot in the last few years, and I am eternally grateful. I never like to ask for things, but I figured it’s not rude if someone asks you to ask for something, so… http://a.co/fKakTSL. Thank you again!

    (Sent! ~ Jenny)

  6. A book I need…
    Link: http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/2JB6U1U05MYGI

    Y’all, I lost a dream job before it even started. My RA was flaring so hard I couldn’t safely take transit. It was supposed to be my first day. Instead, I ended up crying on my cutest blazer.

    Michelle Obama has it together though.

    (Looks like it’s on the way. So much love. ~ Jenny)

  7. Happy booksgiving everyone! I don’t have any requests to make, but I did want to share that I just discovered the Miss Silver mysteries by Patricia Wentworth (former governess turned private investigator in 1930s/40s Britain), and if that’s your thing, then they are the thing for you.

  8. Hi everyone! I love taking part in booksgiving. I feel really guilty this year because I can’t afford to spread the love. My work contract wasn’t renewed so I’m unemployed again and the brain weasels are strong. Here’s my list. I’ve asked for The Guilty Feminist because I love the podcast and I am a very guilty feminist!
    Hello. Please take a look at this list: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/1I8F20DQWV9B1

    (Sending you so much love. Adding a note here that you’re in the UK. ~ Jenny)

  9. The list is called Wish List Furiously Happy, the book I’d like is Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. thank you!

    (I think you forgot the link? ~ Jenny)

  10. Jenny, I have all your books and love them! My favorite one to give away is “You are Here.” I’m going to forgo a freebie chance and hope others who haven’t read got them. I am going to share the url to my blog post that lists my Top 40’s Hits (books) that I read in 2018. You, of course, made the list, TWICE!
    https://parttimesunshine.com/2018/12/07/a-bibliophiles-list-40-of-my-favorite-reads-in-2018/

    My little book, a novelette, “The Pencil Sharpener” can be found on my website: dslucas.com

    I’m thankful for Booksgiving, your words, and otters!

    (Yay! Thank you! ~ Jenny)

  11. I am a new member in a Bloggess Fans book club online and each month the group colors a certain page in You Are Here, then they choose some to use as cover photos in the group. I don’t have any extra money to get my own copy but I am having major FOMO in my book club! These people are amazing and I have found myself laughing at them (and with them) so much recently and I hadn’t realized how much I needed it. (Shout out to Kimberly for adding me to the group!!) Thanks for considering me. <3

  12. I don’t read as much as I should but if someone is looking for a recommendation for an older elementary kid, mine just devoured the Alcatraz vs Evil Librarians series.

  13. This is the first time I’m getting off my butt and participating even though I see this every year. I recently wrote a book. It’s a middle grade fantasy fiction involving some mischievous faeries and a chocolate eating dragon…so here is my fb page or you can visit my website https://www.facebook.com/faeriesofsaizia/?modal=admin_todo_tour http://www.tonyachaves.com

    Here is the link to my booksgiving wish list.

    You might think all the Dr Seuss books are for my kids. They’re not, I truly love and collect Dr. Seuss. I’m never growing up and you can’t make me. So there.

    (Your list has a lot of books on it. Can you make a new one with just the one book you want? Thanks! ~ Jenny)

  14. Booksgiving is always my favorite. I wish I could buy for someone else this year, but things have been rough. I will pay it forward when I can. Always.

    http://a.co/a9YavP7

    (Looks like someone has send it to you! ~ Jenny)

  15. Last year was really difficult for me – I never saw this event. But now I have and I’m so thrilled that it occurs! I’d love to gift someone a book (I buy all of my friends Let’s Pretend…). Everyone deserves to laugh and feel understood. Thank you for doing this Jenny!
    Link: http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/3FF8TYCE7BR4Y

    (Can you add a shipping address to your list? ~ Jenny)

  16. I love this. I already have and love all of Jenny’s books. I’m going to try to buy a book from someone’s list tonight.

    I recently read Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center, and I highly recommend it! Such a great story about finding yourself and realizing how to find happiness in your daily life.

    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3W4TLKQ8VTI1S

    (I love Katherine Center. ~ Jenny)

  17. I feel dumb because I couldn’t put my name on the name part my phone is being dumb I love you Jenny!!!

  18. YOU ARE HERE! I preordered this one but when it arrived my best friend promptly took it from me and Knowing how much she needed it, I acquiesced. Now every time we meet for coffee and coloring I’m jealous of her work.

    (I think you forgot the link. 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  19. I’m reading through the LBJ biography series by Robert Caro. Together it is really a history of our political system with LBJ as an anti-hero, it’s fascinating. It’ll make you somewhat amazed, educated, mad and hopefully make you VOTE!!

  20. Here is my list: http://a.co/02xhEuJ

    Tonya Chaves and Tara Parsons – you have books on the way!

    Happy Booksgiving to all! Jenny, thanks for making everyone’s day a lot brighter!

    (Looks like your book is on the way! ~ Jenny)

  21. I can’t get my link shortened! I However, I still wanted to comnent, I think booksgiving is very kind! Thank you for the goodness you are spreading
    I just found you and your books this week is a blessing because I learned this week my brain is a ‘bastard’ too. And your books are helping and even inspiring me. Thank you!!

  22. Hi Jenny! I’d appreciate a copy of this book. I’m a mom and never get to read. I’ve had a hard week and this would make my day. Thanks.

  23. I have all of your books and I LOVE them! I’ve been going through a really hard time (divorce, disability, grief & loss, mental illness…) and I think I might just have to reread them, to bring some extra laughter into my life! When it rains, it pours, and your books, your blog and my cat come to my rescue. Oh, and your writing with pets videos. They never fail to make me laugh! You are real and you are hilarious and you bring joy and comfort to those of us going through tough times. Thank you so much for being YOU. Anyhow… There is a book I’ve been wanting to read but the waiting list at the library is so long! So I added it to my booksgiving list, here is the link! https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2S82XCDMUT9TH/?ref_=lol_ov_le

  24. Is it ok to send used copies of books? I want to make more people’s days and that would help my budget go farther.

    (Unfortunately you can’t usually send used books through wish lists. I wish you could though. ~ Jenny)

  25. Ginger #70
    My nephew loved the Nightmare Achademy series by Dean Lorey, ALL the Rick Riordan series, and The Tapestry series by Heny H. Neff.

  26. Thank you, Bloggess for doing this. My car caught on fire last night. The fire department and the insurance company says it is supicious. The cop says it isn’t. It was 12 hours after it had been used and it was well below zero last night when it happened. I can’t replace it as I only had liability so I’m hoping to put a little sunshine in our day by getting me and the girls some coloring books/books as we are on a limited income. Thank you, again.

    Link: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/elf7LUN

  27. I have no idea how to properly thank you on here or elsewhere, but <3 LAURA!!! #115 <3 – thank you endlessly!! I’m crying like a baby of your kindness. Love, Madeline

  28. If anyone needs reading ideas, I am re-re-reading Dorothy Gilman’s Mrs. Pollifax series. A 60-ish grandmother decides she had nothing to lose by becoming a CIA spy and accidentally gets hired as an Innocent Tourist courier. Sounds comedic, but isn’t written for laughs. There are 14 books in the series.

  29. I would love to have a copy of “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” in my collection again. I have given away every single copy (probably around 6 copies now) I’ve purchased, ’cause I keep running across poor souls that need it worse than me. Happy Booksgiving y’all!
    http://a.co/aCj36k2

    (Someone already sent it to you! 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  30. I’ve posted my list and purchased 2 books – this is so fun!
    A few of my favorites (lately) have been Calypso by David Sedaris, The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace Johnson, Crazy Rich Asians, and SWELL by Liz Clark (she is amazing)!

  31. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1NA7SE5HXSS3L?&sort=default
    I have all your books and would be happy to gift a copy of Furiously Happy to my sister if you want to send me one of yours, but would be interested in this one if you want to send something else.
    I recently read “The Woman Who Stole My Life” by Marion Keyes and it was a lot of fun. I always enjoy her books, if anyone else is looking for something new to read.

  32. I didn’t know this was a thing! I signed up for your blog’s e-mails a few months ago, and I’m so glad I did. Booksgiving is a great tradition to do! How exciting!

    I’ve added Let’s Pretend This Never Happened onto my list! A good friend of mine has recommended it about a bazillion times. I also added one book for each of my two daughters — my 9 year old just finished the first Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children book and has been wanting the second, and my 12 year old has been begging for more books from Katie McGarry. I’d be so appreciative of any!

    Thanks so much for doing this! I can’t wait to spread some joy back once that tax return finally gets here… 🙂

    (Looks like it’s on the way! ~ Jenny)

  33. I greatly appreciate this day as I’m 82 y/o and still love to color! I’m co-raising my great-granddaughter’s with my youngest daughter. We’ve had a rough day today. In case you missed Marina’s post, I included the girls in my wish list too with books I think they might like.

    List: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/bkMOBJp

    (Looks like it’s on the way! ~ Jenny)

  34. I was SO generously gifted You Are Here and it made my day (LIFE). I would love to add my babies to this Booksgiving because I am obsessed with them, duh. Since I already received, I know this is a bit much, but I will tell them exactly where the books came from and use it as a pay it forward teaching moment. I added one book for each of them to my list.

    My daughter is 11 and has OCD, anxiety, depression, and ADHD and her life has basically been hell the last few years. She is almost ONE YEAR out of treatment for OCD and doing so much better, and I added a mom and me journal for us to pass back and forth.

    My son is 13 and seriously the most unteenager teenager ever. He is SO sweet and kind and he is constantly in his sister’s shadow because – hello did you read her list of diagnoses?! I added the first illustrated Harry Potter for him because he deserves some serious love and he’s a huge potter nerd and proud Ravenclaw.

    Thank you <3

  35. My daughter has been searching our local bookstores for this next book in a series and hasn’t been able to find it. She’d be ecstatic if this arrived in the mail. Also, thanks Jenny for doing this every year.

    http://a.co/5sloNZD

  36. I’m so excited. I would LOVE any chance to get a signed copy of one of Jenny’s books for my non-profit to raffle off. We are getting ready for our annual fundraiser. I’m linking to our school, I’m not sure if I’m allowed to create an amazon page for us of if our director does so, I’ll just link to our school. https://www.chbcmontessori.org We are a certified non-profit.

    My favorite book that I haven’t read yet is the new Faith Hunter book which comes out soon. I’m re-reading her series while I wait. Impatiently.

  37. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1DQQSM6XB7X36

    I love this day! I sent strangers a book the last two years; such a fun thing to do. Also, I highly recommend reading “Educated” by Tara Westover and “Dopesick” by Beth Macy. I’ve read both in the last few months and they are heartbreaking and angering and will really make you think and feel all the feelings.

    Also, otters.

    (Looks like it’s on the way! ~ Jenny)

  38. tlhowe #177 – I switched it from kindle to paperback so I could send it to you 🙂 Happy Booksgiving!

  39. I want an otter to bathe!!!!!! They’re my favourite!
    Love your books, love your brains Jenny (well the parts that don’t make you sad) 😘🥰

  40. Booksgiving makes me so happy!
    I chose one book that might help me with workung through PTSD (which turned out to be quite a struggle, to put it mildly).

    Please note: i live in The Netherlands, so pistage will be higher and i totally understand if you choose someone else to gift to.

    Lots of love! Tamar

  41. Erin (#174) it won’t ship for a week or more, but your book is on the way (and looks hella good too!)

  42. And for those who don’t know — if you go to smile.amazon.com, you can select a charity and future purchases you make on Amazon using that URL will result in a small donation to your charity. So you can give back while buying books (and lots of other stuff on the site)!

  43. Your books make me laugh out loud. Everyone knows the knock, knock with the BIG Rooster….I was on a plane the other day and came across this segment of the book, and I was laughing so looouddd someone asked me if I was okay, because I was crying from laughing so hard. then I tried to explain what was so funny, and this guy didn’t get it, which made it THAT MUCH Funnier! OMG. The first time I read that in your blog, I sent it to everyone, and all laughed. BYW, even funnier than that, my husband will comment when we see any sort of rooster…he says “bock, bock, Mother F****” I keep telling him he is saying it wrong, but HUSBANDS think they are always right…. Bock, Bock for now…………..

  44. One of my favorite days of the year! I gifted Jenny’s book to four people for Christmas and will do for more here! For myself, I am just getting over the flu, a week of hell, and could use a pick me up. And for my kiddo who hated being separated from me for so long.

    Happy Booksgiving!!

  46. Hi #237! One of the books wouldn’t let me ship because it wasn’t allowed to be shipped from a Wish List?? But the other two are on the way!

  47. @annathebookworm2014 #179 – Happy Birthday! Your wish list is missing your address so we can’t send a book your way quite yet.

  48. I did not know about Booksgiving! How is it possible?! Buying books is one of my favorite things, and better yet as a gift! Here’s my wish list http://a.co/cE6ox8v, or You Are Here 🙂

  49. ArtfulDani #103 your book and the Frog and Toad book for your kiddo are on their way! Happy Booksgiving!

  50. Aw… I just love Booksgiving! It’s the most wonderful holiday! My favorite book recently was Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik. So beautiful! Here is my list, one for each me and my two kiddos. Thank you again to Jenny for all of the love and joy you spread every year. I’m here to help moderate the list, if you want/need me to… I think you have my email address. Happy Booksgiving everyone! Link: http://a.co/csW6yti

  51. We are a large family and most of our “family time” is spent building elaborate Halloween displays throughout the year. It also teaches the children about history. Last year was pirates, this year is witches. Also our oldest son has started building and carving tombstones for others’ Halloween props

    http://a.co/in0YCEf

  52. What a wonderful idea. I love surprising someone with a little something! My list is here, but I kinda already got a gift for myself by buying something for someone earlier in the comments, so if no one touches it that’s all good. Not any of Jenny’s books because I have them all, though. 😀 http://a.co/eRq3DKn

  53. Happy Booksgiving! This is the best holiday ever 🙂 I would love a copy of Furiously Happy of my very own! I have checked it out of the library so many times when I need a pick-me-up. It never fails to make me laugh out loud. <3 http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/341516KIML9QL

    (I think maybe you put the idea of Furiously Happy on your list but not the actual book? ~ Jenny)

  54. I can heartily recommend (and remember, I was a bookseller for over a decade) Joshilyn Jackson’s THE ALMOST SISTERS, and Brandon Sanderson’s LEGION. Or drop on by the Seattle Mystery Bookshop webpage. We may have closed our doors sniffle but we’re still pushing books like crazy people!

  55. I love this because I’m a book nerd! However, I’m just going to ask for Furiously Happy. I do a read aloud of parts of it at a women’s scrapbook retreat whenever I go and I’m always having to scramble to the library on my way out of town. It’s worth it for the midnight laughs. I tell a brief background of the players in your life, Jenny, usually a language disclaimer (although I forgot last week and lost someone with motherf&$c&$er) and then share a chapter. Sometimes I just read your blog posts. They love you!! So do I! But I’m a library girl for $$ reasons. Having my own copy would be a real treat. Thanks!!

  56. Anonymous #137, I went to send you your book and it’s not set up to go to you. If you’ll add your address to the wish list, your book will be on its way!

  57. Angela (#236) – enjoy your book. I survived an accelerated BSN program and feel your pain. Hang in there – it’s worth it!!!

  58. FaereWolf #34 … your very own copy is on the way! I went to high school w/ the author… perhaps I should give this book a read too! 🙂 Enjoy and Happy Booksgiving!

  59. Allyson #284, you don’t seem to have a shipping address on the wishlist (or I can’t make it work, at least)

  60. Man this is better than Festivus! Ive been looking for your Owners Manual….I definitely wish your books for everyone(ps- theyre even better to listen to with Jennys’ narration!).I am an idiot and do not know how to attach an address…duh but fun….thats me!

  61. One of the funnest days of the year. I am struggling with a bad case of the winters right now and am in a major CRPS flare, so have been doing a ton of reading. I am in Canada so it’s nice and cold. 😉 am off to look for some wishes to fulfill now – that is the best part. I’ve included a book for my dude too – he has been eagerly awaiting this book for ages.

    Happy Booksgiving!!!!

  62. I’ve wanted to get your books Jenny for awhile. I remember when your first one came out. I don’t get to buy books very often and it doesn’t help my TBR list is really long. I’ve tried to see about getting your books from the library to be able to read but unfortunately they don’t have them in circulation here. I love reading your blog and I’m sure I would love reading your books.

    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2G8JEARCX4GS4

  63. Hey! If anyone is willing to send a book down Argentina way, I’d appreciate it a lot.
    Depression can be a ****.

    I’m sure used is fine. I would be thrilled with used or new, and I’m sure everyone else would be too!

  65. I notice that a lot of the lists click through to “collaboration lists” and you get a little warning… this is slightly different than when James Garfield happened and it added you automatically. Keep in mind if you build this kind of list someone “joins a group” to see your list and gets a TON of emails every time someone joins it etc. Also, people might not fill your list. Just make it a publicly shared list. Just my two cents….

  66. I look forward to this day every year! I love all the Happy Booksgiving generosity! Thanks, Jenny, for engineering this brilliant holiday. <3 On here is one I’ve been book-stalking and one for my book-loving toddler girls. http://a.co/cGMB3Ew

  67. I love all of your books, and have duplicates. I would love a book that I don’t have yet. I’m asking for one of the newer Asterix volumes, because reading them makes me happy.
    Thank you.

    PS: I have “My Sister The Serial Killer” on loan from the ebook library. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  68. Booksgiving is by far the most amazing holiday! Last year my daughter and I received The Little Witch to read together at night. We have read it multiple times since and shared it with others. My daughter was so grateful that a stranger bought a book for her to enjoy. This holiday gives my heart the smiles.

    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/8DL1YC8AECW9

  69. This is my favorite HOLIDAY EVER… Thanks Jenny … sending books from wishlists is my favorite…. Thanks for sharing your lists new anonymous friends….

  70. Tfw you can’t find a book to buy for another because BITCHEZ BE BUYING BOOKS FOR EACH OTHER 🙌🙌
    Robyn, I’ve heard you should read I’ll Be There in the Dark with the lights on, in a public place, surrounded by hired guards and a moat. Probably also an army of trained squirrels.
    I don’t actually know because I couldn’t read it. I’m way too scared of squirrels.
    ENJOY!

  71. BOOKSGIVING! I don’t need a book; I’ll be shopping for other folks later when I get back from the gym, so it’s okay to skip me. But also, if you want to do an exchange, hit me up. Sometimes it is really just so lovely to know that someone else cares. You know?

    http://a.co/ezDiygA

  72. Hopefully Amazon tells someone when the book has purchased off of their list! If not…..

    #188 Kristi (the 3rd book was a kindle edition, sorry!)
    #231 Jay

    your books are on the way! Hopefully you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed getting to surprise you with them! What a great way to spread some happiness and goodwill!

    Happy reading 🙂

  73. I wish everyone would add the title of the book they’re hoping for!I love looking at what others are reading in real life too and I’m sure I’ve made strangers uncomfortable while trying to get a peek at their book’s cover.
    I’m dying to read ( not literally) Little Panic by Amanda Stern about her life growing up with anxiety. My library is seriously deficient in mental health books and I’m not surprised that they don’t have this.
    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/25DBP0R44KKOI
    Is anyone else fascinated by the intriguing situation with the author of the mega-hit A Woman in the Window?
    I personally suffer with agoraphobia so I devoured this book and loved it. The author, real name Dan Mallory, is the subject of a New Yorker profile detailing the author’s rise through the ranks of the publishing industry and the compulsive lying that propelled it. He has claimed to be bipolar. Fascinating. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/02/11/a-suspense-novelists-trail-of-deceptions

  74. Katie 325. The Fantastic Mr. Fox should be there on Saturday. I hope you and your daughter enjoy it.

  75. Aww man, I love this holiday!

    I’ve read Jenny’s books, so here’s my wish … how to stop feeling like sh*t. Because … relevant title (and wish!) http://a.co/2SYUyxG

    Off to shop and pass it forward…

  76. Adore this so much! Your first book was immensely helpful to me, after pulling myself out of the worst depression of my life, I am happy to say I see the happiness of life. Your second book is on my list to read! http://a.co/c5GZJCC

    My boyfriend is publishing an epic fantasy novella later this month, get a free copy and do us the hugest favor ever by leaving an Amazon review! The more reviews we can get the better will be seen by others! FREE BOOK > https://dl.bookfunnel.com/507erkusjk AMAZON > https://www.amazon.com/Orphans-Price-Chronicles-Seventh-Realm/dp/1795616784/

    I’m currently reading 12 rules for life by Jordan Peterson.

  77. I would love to get a copy of You Are Here sent to my daughter, she’s away at school and has recently really been struggling with her mental health (MDD, PD, ADHD). She’s a big fan of Jenny, got Furiously Happy recently and has loved it. I think the coloring book would greatly help to keep her out of her own head for a bit (and it’d be so sweet to tell her that a stranger cares)

  78. Hi, my name is Elizabeth and my little sister has chronic epilepsy. She’s still in high school, but this has been happening increasingly for a couple years now and although she’s been really strong through it all, my heart just breaks for her. It would mean so much if anyone would be so kind to give her a pick-me-up. Thank you so much.

    I don’t have a book out, but please allow me to pimp out my friend’s books. She’s written a series, and has another one (series) coming out this summer. So if you like romance with a bit of pop culture, check out her books 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/B06XSW9KMK/kindle/ref=sr_bookseries_null_B06XSW9KMK

    (And I make jewelry, so if you need a valentine, “galentine”, or maybe just something for your self, have a peek)

  80. Happy booksgiving Thursday everyone!!!! This has to be the best day ever. I was so low today and seeing this brings so much joy! Here is my family’s list. Thank you for this wonderful idea. ( off to find a book for another )

  81. To those of you who requested Kindle books, how did you do the wish list? I want to make sure I did it right.

  82. I wrote a book called Bipolar Me, based on my blog of the same name. It’s available on Amazon at amzn.to/2RLU8hP. (I attended Jenny’s Blog-to-Book session at the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop.)

  83. If anyone needs a good giggle, I highly recommend the children’s book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. I’ve read it so many times to the grandkids (read it again, Gramma!) I practically know it by heart, and we still all laugh out loud. Another great and funny kids book is The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. This one is in rhyme.
