Happy Booksgiving!

Hello, and welcome to the FIFTH YEAR OF BOOKSGIVING!

What is Booksgiving?  It’s pretty much the only holiday I actually enjoy celebrating (other than Halloween).  It’s a day when I give out free copies of my books to people who may need them.  It usually takes place earlier in February but I was in a bit of a depression so I decided to wait until I could breathe again and turns out today is also Random Acts of Kindness Day so it’s almost like my mental illness planned this.

The strange thing about Booksgiving is that very often other people get involved and are like, “I want to buy a book for someone too!” so even if you’re the 26th person asking for a book it is entirely possible some wonderful stranger will gift it to you.

[protected-iframe id=”4041d2f2d05a41275c2561bbed3c6cc1-58006636-1561224″ info=”https://giphy.com/embed/8m57WEg0TbVggnqv8Y” width=”364″ height=”480″ frameborder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed”]

All you have to do is start a brand new wishlist on Amazon with ONE book on it.  (Just one book, okay?  Otherwise it’s not really fair.  The only exception to the one-book-maximum is if you are also picking one book for your child, which is totally fine.)

Click here for directions on how to create a wishlist and PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW STEP 3 about adding your address to this specific brand-new wishlist because otherwise the person buying it won’t be able to send it.

And if you want to surprise a stranger with a book just click on their link, buy their book, choose their address at checkout (it’ll just give you their town for privacy reasons) and send!  (If it doesn’t give you their address it means they skipped step 3 and didn’t enter their address so just delete that book from your cart and try the next person.)

And if you want to get involved but don’t want to buy or give books then just share in the comments what your favorite book is that everyone should read.  What’s the underrated book that no one knows?  What’s the book you wish you could wipe out of your mind just so you could read it again for the first time?  What’s the book you read as a kid that saved you?  (And if you wrote a book feel free to pimp it out below.)  Discovering new books = fried gold.

(Also, I do realize that it’s a bit ironic I’m doing this on Amazon when I’m about to open my own independent bookstore but I haven’t been able to figure out a good way to do this through Nowhere yet.  Maybe next year.)

SO!  Do you need a copy of Furiously Happy, or Let’s Pretend This Never Happened or You Are Here?  Make a wishlist with the one book you want on it and post it in the comments and I’ll send a copy to the first 25 people who respond with a working wishlist.  And if I can find some extra cash I’ll send some more later.

Happy reading y’all!

PS.  If you aren’t in America leave that in your comment because shipping can be crazy expensive if you aren’t matched up with someone in your country.  🙂

  1. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened changed my life and Furiously Happy made me feel less alone in my anxiety. I’m eagerly awaiting a copy of You Are Here! Thanks for the laughs!

  2. I don’t want a book. I just want to say a gracious thank you to Annette, who sent me a second or third postcard last week. Thank you so much #bloggesstribe for this beautiful community!

  3. I’m dancing around the books giving pole in my seasonal wear!

  4. I’d love Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!

  6. You are Here. The only one I am missing!

    (Leave another comment with your wishlist? 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  7. I would love a copy of You Are Here.

  8. What if you have a copy already you’re willing to send somebody? Mindy, you don’t seem to have a link – can you post/get me your information somehow?

    (You totally can but just be careful about what you share. You can leave your email in a comment for someone specific to contact you or maybe have them follow you on twitter and DM you? It can get complicated so be careful. 🙂 ` Jenny)

  9. Here’s my wishlist of one book. Happy booksgiving! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/I34DGBBFQSMY?ref_=wl_share

    I already have all of your books, so I don’t need one of those. I just recommended “Furiously Happy” this morning! I’m eagerly awaiting your next one! I’ve always thought about participating in Booksgiving over the years, but haven’t. I’ll try it this year!

    I’d love a copy of Let’s Pretend this Never Happened! Big fan from Canada!

    (Looks like someone already sent it! ~ Jenny)

    This is a trilogy I have wanted for a very long time. I am big into anime so this is perfect! I hope you all get what you need exactly when you need it!

  13. I’d absolutely love a copy but am broke right now trying to pay off credit card debit incurred from getting back on my feet after a break up of decades long relationship.

    (Sending you love. Leave a link to your wishlist? ~ Jenny)

  14. I love booksgiving! As I did last year, I am asking for a book as a gift for my father. (My folks help me out a ton, even at my advanced age.) https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3IT9QVIN6SWK2

  16. I guess I miss out again this year as I’m not home and cannot set up a list. Congrats to those that get one. Eventually I will get a Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

  17. I would love You Are Here please

  18. I would love a copy of You Are Here so I can have something to both read and do (yay, coloring!) while I hang around doctor’s waiting rooms on my next Mayo Clinic trip(s). Thank you! This is one of the best holiday ideas and I’m excited for when we can use it to support your store too 🙂

    Thank you to all you kind souls who participate in this wonderful tradition!

  20. I gave away my autographed “Furiously Happy” and “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” to someone who needed them more than myself. Either of those would be amazing 😊

    Also, here is my wishlist https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/I34DGBBFQSMY?ref_=wl_share

  26. Hi! Thanks Jenny for always doing this. If anyone’s in Canada, I’d love this book on writing to help me on my journey become a writer 🙂

    Karen recently posted Self-Care, Self-Soothing, and More.

  27. I was gifted Jenny’s books by my sister already so if I may request a different book for myself and one for my little boy who loves foxes: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/HUZMHM3JE9T4?ref_=wl_share

    Thank you so much in advance! I’ll come back after payday on Thursday and fulfill a couple of lists!

  28. One of the many reasons you are amazing!


  29. You are so amazing for doing this every year! It should be a national holiday.
    I have all of your books (in dead tree and audio versions) so I’ll share this book I’d like.
    I’m trying to be like little house on the prairie and making all my own bread this year, so a bread book would be awesome!
    I’d like to recommend Feed by mira grant, and the whole trilogy.
    Zombie political thriller. It’s SO GOOD.

  30. I was given your let’s pretend it never happened to help get me out of a depressive state and it helped a lot. I reread it a couple of times now. I am so interested in your other books. I hope I get picked. Oh and Fyi my therapists office has the furiously happy mouse pad at the front desk. They also love you!

    (Thanks! Make sure you make a wishlist with the book you want and add it in the comments. 🙂 ~ Jenny)

    (It won’t let me send to you because it’s not prime. Unfortunately third party vendors that sell the hardcover version of LPTNH won’t let people share their address. Can you take that one off and switch to the paperback on in prime? ~ Jenny)

  45. amovingfingerwrites your book is on the way 🙂 Us Canadians have to look out for each other 😛

  47. Since I already have all of “The Bloggess” books, how about this one instead?

  48. I wrote two books. Bipolar Me is still available (I think) for a short time on Amazon. The sequel, Bipolar Us, is not quite distributed yet, but please watch for it. They are both for general audiences of people with bipolar or friends and loved ones who are bipolar and really not technical at all. If you can’t find the books, my blog is bipolarme.blog, so you can read some of my writing anyway.

I am in a time of transition moving to a new part-time job to spend more time with my child (who would like to start his own cottage business so I listed a book for him I hope that is ok!) before I blink my eyes and he is graduating from high school.

  62. Your books always pull me out of a low period. Today I’m feeling a bit lower than usually as we had to put down our sweet cat, Zeus, who we have had for 10 years. It was so sudden and I’m really struggling today. Seeing the booksgiving post was definitely a bright spot. I could use the happy distraction of You Are Here. Thank you Jenny for always sharing your hugs and lows. It has helped me be more open about talking about mine.
    Hugs and love to all.

  70. One of my favorite holidays, too! I always treat this as a pay-it-forward holiday. While I ask for a book, I always buy someone a book, too, especially someone who posts late and is really far down the list who might end up getting lost in the shuffle.

    But for me, since I have all of Jenny’s books, it’s time I build out my Carrie Fisher collection — my other mental health/illness author/hero!

    Happy Booksgiving everyone! Love that it’s on Kindness Day too. Thanks for previous years, your three wonderful books, and whoever it is sending me anonymous postcards that seem to arrive when I am particularly down. This tribe rocks. I don’t need a book this year…ok, I always need a new book, but I’d rather give back. If someone gets a book from me, you can give next year. Thank you for this great project, Jenny!!!💕

  82. Jenny, I already have all your books (and calendar, bookbag, tee shirt, etc.) and have gifted copies to my sister. I would like to recommend this book: “Dear Edward” by Ann Napolitano. It’s her first book and is a knock-out; I stayed up all night reading it. It’s sad, touching, hopeful….and one of those books you want to IMMEDIATELY start rereading after you finish it.

  83. I have all 3 of your books, Jenny, so here’s my wish list. I truly love when Booksgiving comes around to see all the kindness. Thank you for all you do!

    (In Canada if any Canadians are looking for a match.)

  90. Happy booksgiving everyone. Books are the best and help so much when I’m in a depression. Keep reading weirdlings

  91. I’m way down the list, but I would love to receive a copy of Furiously Happy if someone is able. I can honestly say all of you have made my last year MUCH more bearable from the mail exchange Jenny did in March 2019 and I hope the mail I was able to send out helped in return. Jenny, if you slog through enough comments to see this, I hope you ‘sponsor’ another mail exchange this year!
    I’m choosing Furiously Happy because it was my first book to read of Jenny’s and helped in more ways than I can explain.

    (Yay! And looks like someone already bought your book. 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  92. I’m going to shout out the books my friend wrote because they’re amazing. The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur (her debut) and An Exaltation of Larks. Rich, deep books about how we love each other. Available on Amazon.

  93. I would love to have a copy of you are here https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1LNOJAWXCP0N1/?ref_=lol_ov_le even if not Jenny has saved me from my mind more times than I care to count. I love her and she has changed my life. I no longer feel like I’m the only person in the world who has mental health struggles and sometimes I live vicariously through her and her brave tweets. Thank you Jenny and thank you to this community who helps me feel like I’m understood . I love you all

    I had no idea that you do this! I also apparently live under a rock, because I didn’t know about YouAre Here: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds. I greatly enjoyed the Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy. Both made me feel like I’m not alone in the mental heath battles that I face. I remember thinking, “This lady is just as complicated mentally as I am, just in different ways!”

    If anyone is inclined to purchase this for me, my wish list is below. My local library does have it, though, so if there are others to choose from, please pass me by…

  115. 131

    I need Furiously Happy!!

    (Then add a wishlist. 🙂 ~ Jenny)

  116. I love this holiday so much, books are the best gifts anytime. I’ve been wanting “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” for awhile, and my kids just discovered Mo Willems and his Pigeon series.


    (Looks like they’re all on the way! ~ Jenny)

  117. Finally, Booksgiving is here! Time to shop and give (and maybe receive too)! Love this every year!

  118. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/KNFI34UMPSOW/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_2?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist
    Thank you for being awesome!

    (Of course! But could you change your wishlist to just pick the one book you most want? Thanks! ~ Jenny)

  119. Could totally use some therapy coloring! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2KV67DQIT09AC?ref_=wl_share

    (Someone beat me to it! ~ Jenny)

  120. Becky from Melrose MA, I got you covered.

  121. I’ve love a new copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I always seem to give my copy away on the bus.

    (Love! Don’t forget to share your wishlist. ~ Jenny)

  122. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/UPPZFTHZ5VQF?ref_=wl_share


    Me and my daughter have a book on here ☺️

  123. Happy Booksgiving!! I love this idea and will pick someone from the list!

    I’ve read them all, but Let’s Pretend this Never Happened is the only one I do not own.

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

  124. This is incredible! Thank you for this day Jenny! I’m not sure if this will work, but here is the book I’ve been wanting to read for a while, if anyone would be so generous:

  125. Finally, Booksgiving is here! Time to shop and give (and maybe receive too)! Love this every year!

  126. I’d love a new copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I always seem to give my copy away on the bus: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3GMOTCGALD2K1?ref_=wl_share

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

  127. 145

    This time I linked the wish list like I was supposed to do the first time…🤷‍♀️


    (You added the link – yay!- but you forgot to add your address to the wishlist. ~ Jenny)

  128. I would lurve a copy of Furiously Happy, because The Blogess makes me so happy.
    Also, https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/JVA80X42526E?ref_=wl_share

  129. Let’s try this again… see it I can follow pretty simple instructions {duh}
    Jenny, you’re the bestest!!

  130. 148

    For those that have missed out on Booksgiving there’s a way to read FREE! Use the App Libby or Hoopla and it will link to your local library and library card. You can check out digital and audio books for free. Or you can sign up for a free trial of Audible. Audible is how I got the most recent Fantastic Strangelings Book Club book, Follow me to Ground, it was too new for the library to have, but I would bet your library has copies of of all of Jenny’s books.
    “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened,” made laugh til I cried and then I cried some more at the end because someone “got me.” I had just been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis (PSA) it’s like RA but it’s worse and evil twin.
    I hope this info helps someone get a chance to read Jenny’s books, they have saved me in many ways and for that I will be forever grateful. Xoxo

    (Super helpful! ~ Jenny)

  131. You’re always so amazing Jenny! I loved all your books, but here is a new one I haven’t been able to justify getting for myself yet.


  132. 150
    Jess Oeffner

    I have my own copies, I just need to bring them to the shop (soon! I hope!) and somehow get them signed, or nibbled on by Dorothy or something : )

    (Yay! ~ Jenny)

  133. Booksgiving is the best holiday ever! I’d love Michelle Obama’s book!


  134. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/IKID9OPSWIC5?&sort=default

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

  135. Caroline wanting a Kindle book – it wouldn’t let me do it that way without your email address.

  136. Yay! Love Booksgiving!
    I’d love furiously happy!

    (Can you add your address? ~ Jenny)

  137. 155
    Rebecca Wright

    I’ve always wanted one of your books but I never seen to get around to buying books for myself.


    (Someone beat me to it! ~ Jenny)

  138. A book series I’m reading that hasn’t gotten much attention is called Original Syn by Beth Kander. I recommend it to everyone that likes any type of dystopian books.

  139. Booksgiving is my favorite day!! I don’t have time to sit and read these days unfortunately (I do listen to a lot of books though) but I added a book for my mom since she just finished the Discovery of Witches trilogy and thought she could read this during her chemo recovery. And a favorite of my daughter’s that we constantly try to check out at the library but is always taken.


  140. Missy(Mary?) #62, your book will be delivered 2/19

  141. I need You Are Here! 🙂

    (Sent! ~ Jenny)

  142. cnhdesigns (comment #91) – your book is on the way! 🙂

  143. James, #15, your book is on the way

  144. I just drove by Nowhere! Can’t wait for I you to open!!! I discovered that needle felting is a way to be stabby without being arrested.


    (Yay! And looks like your book is already on the way! ~ Jenny)

  145. I’d love to have a new Anne Rice novel! I already have all of your books, Jenny. 🙂


  146. I’d like a book. I moved across the country to escape an abusive marriage and only had room to take maybe a third of my books. Trying to rebuild my lost library. Doing my best to be Furiously Happy. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/VT6UHHADC3GM?ref_=wl_share

    (Looks like someone was quicker than me. Sending you so much love. ~ Jenny)

  147. Everyone should read “A Place For Us” by Fatima Mirza. It is exquisite.

    Would anyone like to do a straight-up book swap? It’s nice to get surprises in the mail and stuff.

    The book I would live is this one. https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3J6NXMHKOZ2K2/ref=cm_wl_huc_view

  148. 170
    Alonna L Larson

    I added a list to get a physical copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I started work at a public library recently and they don’t have any of your books, and they should. I only own your books digitally.

  149. 171
    Alonna L Larson

    I forgot to post a link. Sorry.

    (I think it was sent to you? Your wishlist is empty except for an idea. ~ Jenny)

  150. This is wonderful. I’m a single dad with 4 kids all above the age of 12. They would love something new to read and I would love for them to drop the electronics and read. My middle girl loves Whitney and finds such confidence since her. That book would make her day! 💛 thank you so much for wanting to help get books into people’s hands.


  151. I have books on my private wish list, so I decided to move one of them to the Booksgiving list.

  152. I‘m pretty sure that this won‘t work as I live in Germany, but it is worth a try I guess 🙂 I‘d love to finally read Let‘s pretend this never happened:


    This is such a fantastic idea and I hope I will be able to give back next year to someone else in Germany 🙂

  153. Hi Mel (comment #76) – Your copy of Daring Greatly is on it’s way!

  154. I put You Are Here on my list, because every time I’ve bought it so far (…several times) I’ve ended up giving it away to someone else. I still need one for me!
    (The Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur book is for my seven year old.)

    (Sent! ~ Jenny)

    David M #172, did you add your address? I tried to gift you and no address was picked up. 8-(

  156. Booksgiving IS one of the best holidays. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1XQIVHF9M59OT?

  157. My kiddo and I are down with the flu again so I picked a comedy book for each of us (since I already have Jenny’s books😍) Happy booksgiving everyone!


  158. I love Booksgiving. I always put my list into the ring and then go buy for someone else. (Because then I don’t feel bad about having spent the money). https://smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/170QUK2YTVLRY/

  159. Ash M (#124) do the address thing in step 3! I tried to gift you but couldn’t!

  160. I just found out about bookshop.org. They support local bookstores with online sales. Something like Ravelry does with pattern sales made by local yarn shops. Here’s a link:

    (Awesome. I reached out to them. Thanks! ~ Jenny)

  161. Booksgiving brings out the best in so many! Thank you, Jenny, for starting this!! Last year, I received a gift, and I’m paying it forward this time! I’ve got a couple on my list I’d love to have for school, so I’ll share.

  162. I just got home from the hospital with kidney stones and this made my day. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3CIC4XUOS0X3Z/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist

    (Ouch. Looks like a book is on the way! ~ Jenny)

    Jessica Munro

    Two books recommendations: ‘Ahab’s Wife’ by Sena Jeter Naslund, and ‘The Poisonwood Bible’ by Barbara Kingsolver. Those are two of my favorite books of all time.

  165. Here is the book I would like to receive:

    Wool and Shift were amazing, and I’ve been wanting to finish the series.

  166. I love Booksgiving!! I always ask for a Jenny book & always send one.
    My list:https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/38N9078XB3RLY?ref_=wl_share

    (Can you add your address? ~ Jenny)

  167. This is the first I’ve heard of Booksgiving and it’s my new favorite! Thanks, Jenny, for making this possible!

  168. A couple years ago, I was laid off very unexpectedly and I was extremely confused and at a loss about next steps. I had been working as a book editor, and someone here bought me a couple books I really needed when I just didn’t have the funds for that. The kindness and generosity of this stranger were frankly overwhelming (I cried most of the afternoon after my package arrived).

    While things are better for me now, I’m still underemployed and dealing with the unpredictable and piecemeal nature of freelance writing/editing. I’ve come to realize that technical writing/editing would be a good move for me, but I’ve been putting off getting a book I could really use:


    I’m just putting it out there – I know it’s a pricier book, so I have no expectations. I appreciate Jenny’s blog, all the folks here, and everyone’s willingness to participate in these great virtual events (it gives me hope for the internet, and the card swap – that I think happened last year – was amazing). I have a feeling I’m going to be in a much, much better place next year when Booksgiving comes around again. I hope to spread the joy, hope, and positivity and return the favor then when I’m able.

  169. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2A2QC9QY7DTZQ?ref_=wl_share

    This is such a great idea, love it!

  170. Happy Booksgiving! What a wonderful idea! I have Jenny’s first two books and LOVE them! I would love to own the third one “You Are Here”, but am currently unemployed so I’m unable to buy it myself. If anyone is on here from Canada that wants to buy a book for someone <3, here is my link. 🙂

  171. Love this idea! Gonna try and spread it around with my friends as well.

  172. Thanks for ridding me of my fear of therapy and meds! It truly means the world to me!

    (Can you add your address? ~ Jenny)

  173. 198
    Rebecca Stromgren

    Jenny, you are awesome.
    Aside from your books, I highly recommend “Chasing the Moon” by A. Lee Martinez.


  174. 199
    Doranna Benker Gilkey

    I also want to mention Bookshop.org. I have a very small, very new bookstore and I’ve just signed us up with them. It isn’t quite as sophisticated/complex as amazon, but worth looking into.

  175. Ooooh yay the best holiday of the year! And I’m finally in a place where I can actually buy one for someone else!
    Here’s my list because I’ve got a 10 year old daughter who needs all the strong ladies she can find in her books 😀

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

  176. Happy booksgiving!!! I can’t wait to start sending people books. 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1FYM0BQPAAI68?ref_=wl_share

    Tamara Clohessy

    I would love a copy of You Are Here. I have a friend who needs this book and it will go to her.


    (Can you add your address? ~ Jenny)

  179. Betty S. From South Michigan…book headed your way! Hope your daughter enjoys Nessie!

  180. I would love a copy of You Are Here! There’s also a Sandra Boynton book on my list for my 2 year old because, books. 💜https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1S55P64POXVG2?ref_=wl_share

    (sent both! ~ Jenny)

  181. I’d like to let everyone know about my books. I have a novel, Eternal Willow, two novelizations from Ghost Sniffers and short stories in several anthologies. If you want something new to read, please take a look. https://www.amazon.com/Amber-Rainey/e/B083MX6S7N/ref=dp_byline_cont_pop_book_3

    Thank you 🙂

    PS My second novel will be out later this year and in a very different genre than my first.

  182. This is a book I think I’d love…

  183. 209
    Kelly Bennett

    I think I’m late to the party, but You Are Here would be amazing to own! I’m going to go gift a book right now to someone, yeah! You are wonderful Jenny!

    (don’t forget to include your wishlist! ~ Jenny)

  184. So bummed I didn’t see this in time! I need a new copy of Furiously Happy. I let a friend borrow it and we had a falling out and no longer speak… This book changed my life. At 30, I was finally able to admit to myself (and others) that I suffer from depression. I miss my book greatly…


    (Looks like you forgot to add your address? ~ Jenny)

  185. If I’m not too late to the game, I’d Love You Are Here, which is actually the title of my wishlist, too. I keep buying it and giving it to patients, who I swear it cures more durably than conventional meds.


    (someone beat me to it! ~ Jenny)

  186. Would love this book! Thanks!


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

  187. Can I please use my book for my niece who is living with us? She just devoured my old Babysitter Club books and I know she would love to read this book about the teenage book craze in the 80s and 90s. And then my 6 year-old would love a Regean and Buddy book. 🙂


    (Looks like someone already bought it! ~ Jenny)

  188. What a fantastic idea!

    I added a book for myself, one for my 16 year old and one for my 14 year old. Hope those are okay!



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

  189. Hooray! I’ve been not so patiently waiting for this day! I usually screw up my link but hopefully, I have it right this year.
    Now I’m off to fulfill a wish or two!

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

  190. My favorite holiday! After Arbor Day, that is. Here’s my list! I’m a huge Disney fan and love reading about the people who make the parks possible and this is a new one I’ve been dying to read.

  195. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/35H7RIV3XAA53?ref_=wl_share

    I requested a book for myself and one for each of my 2 daughters but please ignore mine if that’s not allowed! I wrote which book is which on the wishlist. Thanks!!

  196. Please send this for my kiddo. Dinosaurs are her favorite!


  197. Again, may be too late, but wishlist is called You are here and that’s my wish.

    This link has a mailing address:


  198. I love Booksgiving (I just added that word to my dictionary) It is my favorite. day of the year.

  199. I just sent one to a lucky person in AZ!!! Here is mine. Happy Booksgiving everyone-

  200. I already have two of Jenny’s books, which are FAB. If someone would like to indulge my love of the Queen, I would be ever grateful.


  201. I hope I did this right! I chose a kindle book because they are cheaper! I look forward to the day when I can afford to participate on the other side!


  202. 229
    Alexis Whyte

    Please send this for my kiddo. Dinosaurs are her favorite!


  203. So much fun! I look forward to this every year!
    Also, here’s a shameless plug for my own book, Raising Wildflowers – the misadventures of a working mom raising awesome kids. Jenny was my inspiration for writing it!

  208. Canadian here. I chose something light and fluffy, because sometimes you need a good romcom book in your life. 🙂


  209. Laura C, #132, Your Jenny book and the Pigeon book are on the way!

  210. Thanks so much for doing this Jenny, and thank you also to all of the lovely people buying books for others! I haven’t read Furiously Happy yet, and as someone who also suffers from anxiety and depression I would absolutely love a copy.


  211. You are incredible for doing this. I’ve been dealing with a chronic pain flare up and would live to have something to read while I rest. I’m in Canada. https://www.amazon.ca/hz/wishlist/ls/3OFLLOZTG7Q48?ref_=wl_share

  212. My favorite holiday! I own all of Jenny’s books but have been wanting to get into the extended Star Wars universe and have heard this is a good one: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2QSY021CCR3LF/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_2?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist

    Folks – if you’re requesting a Kindle book, remember to put your email address in the wish list description so it can be delivered to you.

    Rachel R, in Ga

    For those of you that like crime, serial killers, etc this is the last book I read and it’s fantastic! The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson. I’d be happy to send this one to someone if interested.

    I added a collection by Edgar Allen Poe for my daughter. We are homeschooling and currently working through American Lit for her 11th grade year. She’s been asking for Poe, but i haven’t been able to locate a collection at Goodwill.

    I would really love a copy of You Are Here.
    With many Thanks,
    Jean Roberts

  218. BEST HOLIDAY OF THE YEAR! This is so fun! I have always read about this after it has run its course so I am excited to post a list for myself this year! One book for myself and one for my 15 year old teenage daughter! We are both doing some self discovery this year! (p.s. I would love it of my book fairy was an enneagram nerd and wanted to know what the book says about their type!)


  219. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/180G95IOGGQ8B?ref_=wl_share

    A copy of You Are Here would really make my day!
    Thank you!!!

  220. I posted in the comments of the FB post so Mindy can dm me there and we could exchange information. 🙂

  221. 253
    Andrea murdock

    I hope I did it right! I would love let’s pretend this never happened as I have given all my copies away to those who could use it and now don’t have one for myself. I’m in Canada. Really in a dark place and could use some humour to kick depression’s ass!!!!! Hopefully things are better financially next year and I can treat someone!!!

  222. Really sad because I created the wishlist right after you posted but I just looked back and realized my comment didn’t send… it’s the only 1 of the 3 I don’t have yet!


  223. I’m so happy it’s that time of year again! I’ve added a “Garfield” book to my wish list b/c my kid’s both love him… this would be a fun surprise for them! Thank you, Jenny… this is a wonderful thing you do every year.

    Allyson #141 … You should be getting your book tomorrow! 😉

  224. I have a book Ive been meaning to read and 2 books from my kid’s favorite series for my 2 kiddos (4 and 6) If anyone needs a kids book reccomendation the Pig The Pug series is read almost nightly at our house 🙂

    Marissa Seib


    I’m not expecting to get the book but it’d be cool.

    Jenny,thanks for changing my life. I have OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Depression. Your books, blog, and tweets keep me going. You give me hope. I also give or recomend your books to all my friends and so far it’s been a 100% success rate.

  226. 258
    Kelly Bennett

    This is such a wonderful thing to do for someone. Thank you Jenny for starting this up.
    I would love to own the book on my list:

  227. For my wife who needs a pick me up. She’s always the one to put everyone else first. I bet she wouldn’t even put a book for herself on here so I want to make sure she gets something, just for her.


  228. Happy reading to my new friends in Fargo, ND, and Newport, PA!!

  229. 262
    Peggy Jo Fuller

    I would love to have You Are Here.

  230. Think I messed up earlier, linked an old list. Trying again! Happy gifting/receiving to all!

  231. “What’s the book you wish you could wipe out of your mind just so you could read it again for the first time? ” Give it time. I just reread an entire series of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe books because I could no longer remember whodunit. It’s awesome. Only now I wish I hadn’t given away all of my Agatha Christie books when i remembered the killer in the first few pages.

  232. I’ve read all of Jenny’s books! Would love to read Educated


  233. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/286GTOS2VHME5
    Pretty far down on the list but thought I would post it anyways. You are here is the only book of yours I haven’t bought yet but I will someday!

  234. I have both of Jenny’s books so I put another of my favorite authors on my list.
    I am in Canada
    Thank you if some one chooses to be generous.

  235. Ok so… that’s an example of how my day is going. Made the post and forgot to include the link.

    You are such an inspiration, thank you for speaking up about mental illness.

  238. I have all of your books, though they are on loan to my high schooler right now. 🙂

    But I’d love a new book to read. Having a lot of medical things lately and something to distract while in waiting rooms would be great. I’m a single mom on a fixed disability income, so “frivolous” wants for me take a back seat to needed things and kid wants.

    Thank you to anyone who can help! 🙂

    As I (hopefully) come to the end of this stage of my journey, and get ready to start my second career, I would like to ask for … a journal. “The Fox and the Star” is the book I read with my niece, and it’s “our” book. Now her auntie the writer would like to journal her story so that when my little nugget of a niece is old enough to understand, to understand why her auntie has scars, why her auntie has a semi-colon tattoo, she can read how her auntie went through hell, got up, fell down, mourned, got up, and, finally, was reborn.


  241. Such a great day! I’m hoping I can buy a book for someone today. I would love the book on my wishlist.

    Here’s our list. There’s one on there for me, and one for each of my girls (5 & 9). This is one of our favorite things each year. I’d love Furiously Happy if anyone chooses, because I’m needing some help get to point! Happy Booksgiving!!!


  245. I would love this book. It has been on my “I want that” list for a while now.

  246. #226 Emily M — great choice! Your book is on the way. I love the fact that many of us get to both give and receive on Booksgiving!

  247. I just moved myself and my toddler in with my parents last week, leaving my narcissistic husband after 10 years. I have dearly been wanting to read Kristina Kuzmic’s new book. I truly loved Jenny’s books and should reread them in this season.

    If this shows up again – ignore it. I tried posting but didn’t see it. Our list has a book for me and one for each of my girls (5&9). Happy Booksgiving friends!!

    Last year I was happily able to gift several people books but life is different for me this year and finances are much tighter. The book I need/want is a bit expensive so I understand if nobody wants to spend that much. I really hope that next year I’ll be back on the giving end but either way, happy booksgiving!!!

  251. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1CO52RR3RTL76/?ref_=lol_ov_le

    Lost my job last week, think this would help me as I try to figure out where to go from here.

  252. I’d love to give a copy of Furiously Happy to a past teacher of mine to keep in her classroom for future students who may need it like I needed it!

  253. I have all copies of Jenny’s books that I need I will gladly buy a book for someone up above. If you feel so inclined I am including my link here for my want/need book.

  254. I believe in coincidences. A friend recommended a book today to help me deal with my anxiety. Since I am late to the game, I don’t expect anything, but it is fun to play. Thanks, Jenny! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3APGK1IXJLT6U

  255. My wife just told me about Booksgiving, and I think it’s now one of my new favorite celebrations (up there with Halloween, Arbor Day, and Life Day).

    So in the spirit of the holiday, here’s my booksgiving wish list!

  256. I’ve given for Booksgiving, this time I’ll make a wish for myself. I am learning how to put myself first, sometimes. Thank you!

  257. Shannon who wanted Peince Lestat, your book should be there by March 2. It was a third party seller.

  258. Here is my list.

    I’m going to see if I can fulfill a couple this year!

  259. I didn’t realize I had anxiety until I read your books. It’s what made me get help. 💜


  260. Happy Booksgiving everyone! One of the best holidays ever! Here’s my list for me and my two kiddos, Emma and Dexter. Thanks to everyone for all of the kindness you are showing one another! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/M9B6RYGPXQVW?ref_=wl_share

  261. I self published some original poetry. Only way to get it though is through me. It was therapy.

  262. You Are Here will complete my collection! ♥️♥️♥️

  263. I would love to re-read Furiously Happy( ha it from the library,( my budget doesn’t include actually buying books!), then send it on to an elderly friend in Texas who has the most excellent potty mouth ever…she’d love it too!

  264. Furiously Happy is just what’s needed. Young, depressed, unhelpful “support” system. Could really use a book, would make my day! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3BNOWL2S35RCJ?ref_=wl_share

    I would love to finally read the 2nd Outlander series book, Dragonfly in Amber. I’m way behind and need to catch up so I can watch the show. Haha. I included a book each for my children, too. Happy Booksgiving everyone! Thank you!!!

  268. Booksgiving sounds AMAZING! My daughter Piper would be thrilled to receive this knot tying book! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3BO77080VLNJS

    I’m so excited that you are keeping this tradition alive! Your books have been well-loved and well-read in my home. Like last year, I would like to add one for me here, and go back and grab a few for others. I have picked up my love of Steven King lately and trying to fill in the blanks of books I may have missed of his. Thank you for all of the hard work you put into this!


  270. Happy booksgiving. I have two small kiddos that love books and I hope to continue to Foster their love of reading. Thanks!

  271. I’m number 172 and I didn’t save when I added the address. All fixed. Thanks to anyone who tried to send a gift

  272. One of the best books I’ve ever read is “Alias Hook” by Lisa Jensen. It’s about Captain Hook and the transformative power of love. You’ll never look at Peter Pan the same way. The book is beautifully written and engaging from the very first page.

  273. Michelle (#260), your book should arrive on Wednesday! Happy Booksgiving! -Joe

  274. I adore books but have to mostly rely on libraries lately. Here’s one I would love to actually own if possible.

    Even if not, the existence of the Bloggess tribe and such lovely events like this keep me going on certain days when all else seems like crap, so thank you all!


  275. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/37A5RBXF6QVN6?ref_=wl_share

    I am about to graduate nursing school and want to become a per diem SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner). This book looks like a fascinating way to get more behind the scenes, heart felt, information.
    Can’t wait to make nurse money and buy random people books!

  276. This is great. I love your books. Hope to read You Are Here

  277. How is it possible that someone already purchased the knot tying book for my daughter??? Thank you so much! She loves knots and I ran out of ones to teach her after the square knot ha ha. She is going to flip!

  278. Happy Booksgiving!!!!
    I hope I did this correctly..lol

    Furiously Happy is my go-to when I need to smile. Thank you for…..YOU. I would love YOU ARE HERE! I know I’m very far down this list, but, I can hope….right:?


  280. Happy Booksgiving! I’m looking for something to distract me from my new fun life-phase: perimenopause. Thank you!!! (And I already have your magnificent books).


  281. I included books for my girls that they can share (once the youngest learns to read better. For now she loves the pictures and the oldest loves reading to her).


  282. Thank you in advance. This means a lot to meand my son.

  283. Heather Dawn post 282 I sent one of the books for your daughter. From my 9 year old daughter. I love the book choice! (Sofia Valdez Future Prez) Should arrive by Thursday.

  284. For the first time in many many years, I am in a position at the moment to pay forward the kindnesses I have received from strangers and friends and internet peoples. I love today.
    Thank you to the universe and all the people for all the help I’ve received – even if they didn’t know they helped me in some way, like just to keep going one more step. <3

    Shannon akaMonty recently posted A quarter of a century. POOF..

  285. Brian, #259, what a lovely thing for you to do. Your book is on the way.

  286. My copy of this was unfortunately taken by an ex…. which was heartbreaking because it was a gift. I’d love another copy of it, (and appropriate for presidents day??). Thanks in advance!!


  287. Leaving this here as it’s a book I’d love to read, and then headed back up to find something to share with someone else! Happy Booksgiving!


  288. Gina #29, your book is on the way!

    My husband writes books and they are great in my obviously biased opinion!

    Robert Max Tillsley
    The Last Cruise Ship – SciFi adventure
    The Steel Trap – urban fantasy with ghosts & spies aimed at 8-12 but good for older readers
    Rebyrth – SciFi set it Australia aimed at 10-14 but also able to be enjoyed by adults

    Thanks Jenny for this fabulous book giving idea!

  290. CassiePants (317), your book is on its way!

  291. Misty, #266, your book is on the way.

  292. So, I’ve made a goof already (I’m sorry!), so maybe people can learn from my foolishness… I just put my books for my two kids and I onto my “The Book I Really Need List 2019” on Amazon, not thinking it’s the Wish List from last year with my 2020 wish on it, but if you click filter purchased it shows last years books… So I had to make a new list. I’m sorry about that. Looks like someone bought my son’s book, thank you so much! And sorry I flubbed on my first attempt. This link is correct! I left my old one up for transparencies sake.


  293. A L Hoise post 300 Furiously Happy lifeline headed your way. Should arrive by Wednesday. Enjoy!

  294. I’ve had a rough couple of years, including a nasty divorce and, much to my dismay, the loss of almost all of my favorite books, which I’ve been slowly replacing. And even if I’m not one of the lucky recipients, I am soooo lucky to have found Jenny Lawson and this weird, wonderful community ♥️

    Second, a request for a dear friend who is also a stressed out super mom and could use something happy in her mailbox:

  296. Thanks so much for doing this, Jenny!


  297. I think I’ve passed on my struggles with anxiety, so this one is for my tween daughter: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3FSBH7PPA7IWN?&sort=default

    Love you, Jenny! (And I have all of your books.) <3

  298. This is the only book of Jenny’s I don’t have. Her books have helped me be a better wife and parent.

  299. Michelle Marino, your book should arrive tomorrow!

    I bought someone else’s book, too, but I lost track of whose it was. It’ll be a surprise for both of us!


  300. Have been dying to read this! Will also send one to someone – headed to scan the list.

  304. I feel so good! I just sent out 3 books to people!

  308. Darcidoe – what an intriguing book choice! Headed your way!

  318. Julie F, you have to leave your email address in the comments of your wish list in order to get a Kindle copy.

  319. My favourite holiday!
    Last year someone gifted me a book, but unfortunately it never arrived.
    As i’m still working on dealing with trauma, i decided to put it on my list again this year in hopes of better luck.


    PLEASE NOTE i live in the Netherlands, so postage will be higher.
    If you’d rather send to someone closer to home, I totally understand :).

    Thank you all for being wonderful xx

  326. Have been looking forward to Booksgiving all month!

  327. I would love this book for my kiddo

  328. I got overly excited and forgot to add my link. Sigh. I DON’T CARE THOUGH BC IT IS STILL A SUPER BADASS IDEA. So here:

  329. I only ask for one book for my kiddo. Happy Booksgiving from Canada!

  330. Here’s mine (I already have all three of yours and bought someone You Are Here)! Such a badass idea!!!

  331. SHENDA – that is my kind of book so I added it to my own queue too! 😀 Fun for both of us.

    Happy Booksgiving everyone!
    Jenny you are a gift to the world! Thanks for all that you do!


  334. I’ve created a Booksgiving Wish List with the one book of yours that I don’t have.
    I also want to say thank you to all the lovely goddesses who have kept my spirits up with their cards and postcards. It’s been really tough with my husband being unemployed, and y’all have made some days just a little brighter. I’m terrible at getting back to people, but I have saved every one and if there is a return address, you will get something from me when we are stable. Xoxo

  335. Happy Booksgiving indeed.

  336. I didnt realize I need to put email in comments for kindle book. Thank you becomingcliche for posting that ! I fixed it !

  337. Hi Jenny! I know I’m late to the show, but if you have any lying around, I would love a copy of You Are Here.
    I listened to the audio book versions of your other two books through the library and I absolutely love them! I found them in a difficult time in my life and they made me feel much less alone. Thank you!

  338. This is surprisingly difficult. Thank you for booksgiving and the opportunity to learn how to receive.

  339. Thank, zuefay! A L House

  340. Ahhh yes…Booksgiving! It always brightens up February..a rather blah month all around :/ I have your books already, but there is one on my list that I’ve had my eye on.


  341. 388
    Thank you All

    I might be late but if so that’s ok. I wanted to try anyway! I put one for me and one for each of my kids although maybe my youngest won’t quite understand hers but I can read it to her.

    Thank you anyone who reads this and considers us!


  342. Ooh I might be late to the game 🙁 Id love any of them. I did read Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and adored it. I’m going through a hard time right now and your book I read made me laugh out loud.

  343. Post 383, anonymous, you book is on the way. Enjoy!

  344. I love all your books but could really use this right now.

    I absolutely love this idea. I’ve been having some health issues that have caused me to stop working so I’m home a lot and use books as a way to distract myself and keep myself from getting too depressed about my current situation. I love this blog and have been following it for years. A friend of mine recently used the picture of Beyoncé the rooster at your front door for my Valentine’s Day card from her. It made me ridiculously happy.

  346. I forgot the link.

  347. Amanda, #158, your daughter’s book is on the way!

  348. Hi! Take a look at this List I created on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1WKPUMT5J4SQQ?ref_=wl_share

    I’m terrible with copy and paste. Sorry for all the comments.

  349. Health issues have forced me to stop working so books have become my escape and way to keep from getting too depressed over my situation. I wish I could afford to surprise one of you with a book this year but will hopefully be able to next year.


  350. Sami, #391, your book is on its way! Delivery scheduled for Wed.

  351. Aaron #289, your book should be there Weds!

  352. I accidentally added the kindle copy instead of the book itself. Here is the updated list.

  353. Sorry, this is mine updated from earlier.

    Can I shamelessly promote my book here? “Circling Butterfly” is what one friend called “Fan Fiction for Opera”. It is the back stories of three characters in Madama Butterfly that you see on stage but never get to know. And it goes on to tell everyone’s stories after (spoiler alert if you don’t know the opera) Butterfly dies. Available on Amazon or Abe Books if you don’t want to support Bezos.

  359. I wore my Nowhere Bookshop tee to chemo today, took a nap, went out for Ramen, THEN while eating my Ben and Jerry’s, I find out it’s Booksgiving! Turned out to be a pretty great day. I’m gonna be just gifting not recieving this year. Off I go! Love your holiday Jenny.

  360. I know I’m a little late to the game, but I would really love a copy of Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime. It’s been on my to read list since it came out. 🙂


  361. Yay! I love participating in Booksgiving every year!

  362. I would love this book please. Thank you!


    Off the Beaten Path: A Travel Guide to More Than 1000 Scenic and Interesting Places Still Uncrowded and Inviting

  363. I recommend ‘The Android’s Dream’ by John Scalzi to everybody I like.

  364. Emily (409), Born a Crime is suuuuuuch a good book, definitely in my top 10. It should be with you on Wednesday! I hope you’ll love it too 🙂

  365. I’ve been reading and re-reading my copy of let’s pretend this never happened until the point I can recite large parts of it! Really hoping for furiously happy!

  366. Thank you so much Lindsay (#340). I can’t wait to read it. -Anonymous 288

  367. This is my first time officiating in this! I’ve listed two books, as one is for my 11 year old son. He is super interested in the history of the Black Plague, so I think he’d love this!! Here is our list: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3PSURZYE88WYF?ref_=wl_share

  368. I swear I am tech savvy but when it comes to Booksgiving, I fall apart. I thought I posted but I don’t see it so here it is again just in case. I am off to buy someone a book now. Thank you! Colleen


  369. Anonymous 228, I wanted to send your Kindle book, but you don’t have an email address in your comments… can you add it please? Thanks!

  370. Llyana Barnett, your book is on the way! Enjoy!

  371. I love booksgiving! Thank you! Here’s a book I’ve been wanting to read.

  372. I’m not looking to receive for Booksgiving, but I wanted to tell everyone about some great books. I love everything by Neil Gaiman, but my favorite right now is Stardust, which is available as a ebook, a regular book, a illustrated book, or a graphic novel. (The movie adaptation is fun, but as always, the book is better.) I also recommend both the graphic novel series Fables and Saga. Ok, just came here to say all that. Thank you, Jenny, for creating Booksgiving!

  373. It seems I keep messing up. Here is my original post. Address and list is fixed. Thanks everyone for catching it and trying to help the kiddos get their books!

    172 – This is wonderful. I’m a single dad with 4 kids all above the age of 12. They would love something new to read and I would love for them to drop the electronics and read. My middle girl loves Whitney and finds such confidence since her. That book would make her day! 💛 thank you so much for wanting to help get books into people’s hands.


  374. ManicPanicked (post 399) I filled your wishlist. Enjoy!

  375. I’d like to request a book for myself, and one for my daughter. If anything, I’d love to get hers the most!


    Thanks Jenny, and all the other kind givers and book reccomenders!

  376. I love this!! Thank you so much!


  377. Not asking or giving this year. But do want to plug the book “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole. It’s not new, but I can’t stop laughing at the dialogue. Something on nearly every page cracks me up.

  378. I hope this doesn’t double post… My connection timed out the first time. I’ll try once more.

    I added a book for myself and my daughter. I’d definitely say hers is a higher priority than mine, I want her to be a reader and read alllll the books!

    Thank you Jenny, and all the other kind givers. And the people with recommendations too!


  379. Asking for a copy of Furiously Happy for my little sister Mia (11 years old).

    She borrowed my copy of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and fell in love with your writing. She actually did a book report on it for school (obviously the coolest kid ever) and plans to do her next book report on Furiously Happy. I know she’d love to have her own copy

    Thanks for doing this. Happy books-giving, one and all!

    Not sure if this link will even work cuz I’m kinda bumbling along because I totally forgot the instructions exactly one second after I left the page. Also I know I’m 2000 & late for this but I figured what the heck. I have all 3 of your books and am dying for your next one to come out. I used to collect Stephen King and this is my all time fav of his books and I loaned it to a apparently untrustworthy friend who never returned it, why get made me sad. This is why I no longer loan out stuff btw. This same person was supposed to deliver Girl Scout cookies and is now trying to make me drive a half hour to get them instead. Seems I didn’t learn my lesson….anywho… Happy Booksgiving everyone! Totally best holiday ever!

  381. Wow. So many replies. Not to get too lost into the ether of the internet but I have a book to recommend. “You Deserve a Drink” -Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery by Mamrie Hart. Easy quick read with chapters/tales readable in or out of order at your own pace. Yes, she’s a youtuber though a hilarious comedian whom like Jenny here let you know you’re not alone in your silly life.

  382. #318, your books for your girls are on the way! Happy Learning from me and my unschooled kiddo – and Happy Booksgiving!

  383. TAFairy, #360, let’s try again this year.

  384. Jenny, I have Let’s Pretend This Never Happened but if you end up with extras of either one of the other two, I’d love to read them!


  385. I’d like to request one book for my son (Strange Planet) and one for my daughter (Try Guys – she loves their YouTube videos). Thanks so much!

    I would love a replacement copy of Let’s pretend this never happened. I lost mine in a divorce and miss it terribly. It found me once in a place where I needed it and have been feeling the need for it again. I would love to have a copy make its home here.


  388. I love to read!!

    I participated in the holiday gift exchange and am excited for this as well

  389. Here is a book I have been interested in for quite some time. Thank you!

  390. This is beautiful! Furiously Happy helped me through horrible post-partum anxiety. I would love to own a copy to reread it in tough times with my mental health. I remember the first time bawling at the end thinking “I’m not alone”.


  391. Oh this is a great time. I’ll try again even though I’ve never actually been chosen to get a book before LOL it’s always nice to help others. And in case anybody wants to here’s my wish list with an interesting sounding book on it. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2NRRVN5LLGNOT?ref_=wl_share

    (Thanks to kind souls, I already have all of Jenny’s books!)

    Thank you! if anyone manages to find and pick me!

  400. Jaime from post 429, your link to me to my own wishlist. Maybe try again?

  401. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/38WXJ6LFC34YG?ref_=wl_share

    Hoping I did this right…I’m getting back into coloring in order to spend less time on screens. I know I’m way late for Jenny to respond, but hoping some kind soul will help out.

  402. Christina White – two books for your kids have been sent! Enjoy

  403. Hi friends! I already have and treasure Jenny’s books, so I’ve put something different on my list. Trying to figure out how to navigate this late-ish in life diagnosis, and I think this book would be of help.


  404. Connie. Foster way down in Texas, your book is on the way! I was going to post via the name you have here then couldn’t find you again. Hope it’s ok. Anyway, happy booksgiving! AJ 💕

    I love this idea! I don’t need a book, but I wanted to share that ALL book lovers should read The Library Book by Susan Orlean.

  406. 461
    Michelle Johnson

    Can’t wait to read the latest book! In the meantime…


  407. I almost missed it this year; I always look forward to this holiday!
    My daughter has the first book in this series, and the third. She would love to have the second book so she could actually read the set.
    I love Charlaine Harris, and I’ve been looking forward to her new book.
    Thanks for considering us!


  408. Favorite book that everyone should read? Original Syn, by Beth Kander. Dystopian. Thought-provoking. Couldn’t put it down.

  409. Please double check your links and addresses!!! I tried to send out several and couldn’t because of incorrect links or missing addresses.

    That being said, it took me a long time to find people to buy books for because so many other people had bought books already. It warms my heart.

  410. I first found Lets Pretend in a small library in a smaller town in AZ where I didnt want to be at all. Then I went back to college and found it there in a small free library on campus. It always seems to come when I need it. Furiously happy always slips thru my fingers as I pass it on to people who equally need it.
    I have 1 fluff book on my lost for me and 2 silly books for my 2 kiddos. Happy booksgiving!


  411. I love Booksgiving and I love this community!! Looking for another Canadian to send a book to tonight, here is my book request


  412. 468

    Ok fellow bookbuddies that was so much fun going down the list, trying to find a book wish that hadn’t yet been fulfilled! You are all so awesome. Glad I was able to participate again this year. It warms my heart to see so many people helping people they don’t know. I decided to add a book for myself in case, at this late hour someone has the urge to help me disappear into fantasy for a few hours. Many thanks! AJ

  413. Since I have both a signed and unsigned copy of both of your books, I’ve added another book that I would love. I can’t wait to go gift a book to someone else!


  414. I’m #346. Could someone check my link to the wishlist and make sure it works? Thanks!

  415. i would love to have You are Here. I can’t wait for the bookshop to open. There’s a group of us on Litsy (like Instagram for books❤️) that are planning a meet up at Nowhere. Going to Nowhere is now on my bucket list! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2MDI5M8GO7FFT?ref_=wl_share

  416. Lindsay, thank you so much!! My daughter is so excited, and I am thrilled as well. I can’t wait to jump in to this book.

  417. 476

    What a great idea 🙂
    Posting, and sending tonight!
    I love getting surprises in the mail!


  418. Lana1967 Your link is for a kindle book and I can not purchase kindle books On wishlists on my phone. I’m guessing it might be the same for anyone else on mobile. It shows your wishlist and email but is missing the buy button. I hope you’re able to get a book!

  419. I’ve been working through some stuff lately so I just started another re-read (or re-listen rather) of Furiously Happy but I don’t have You Are Here and could really see it helping me through this…weird time I’m going through. I love your books, Jenny, and what’s more, I love listening to you read your books! Thanks for just being you and sharing your sparkle with the world!

    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1YDH222FB2745?ref_=wl_share (Hopefully I did this right…)

  420. There is a group for independent bookstores to do business online just like Amazon. I can’t remember the title and it may be at work where I’m not but google it, it’s starting to happen now.

  421. Thanks in advance. I’ve had my eye on this a long time. Happy Booksgiving! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/9STX1MVRALQI

  422. Happy Booksgiving #466, your book is on the way!

    My wife signed up earlier and sent a book to someone, and I thought it would be fun to join in as well. I don’t often buy books for myself, but I’ve enjoyed this author for years, and would look forward to this book arriving in the fall. Thanks!


  423. 482

    I would love this foodie book. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/F443K2HO4XB9?ref_=wl_share

  424. I would really appreciate Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.

  425. Thank you Jenny for always making me smile and to never feel alone.
    Happy Booksgiving everyone! From one book addict to another.

    Audrey Haywood

    Yay, it’s BooksGiving! I’ve had my eye on this book for quite a while.

  427. I hope I did this right. I have read all your books, so I added another book I want.

  428. Kitten #436 thank you so, so much!

  429. Looks like my comment got eaten. I’d really like this book. Yay for BooksGiving!

  430. Hello! I’d love some coloring while waiting for the spring to help my mood 🙂 I’m in France, though…

  431. There are 3 of us in the house. I am pretty much stuck in bed now because of my back. My daughter had a c-section in January. And my son is taking care of both of us. I would love to see both of them smile. Thank you for even looking at our list. We used to get identical coloring pages and have art shows.


  432. This is my bookwishlist !!!

    I am from India !

    One book is for me and another for my lil brother!!

    Thanks !! I have Jenny’s books and happy random kindness day to u.

    Happy Booksgiving! I know I am too late to participate but still wanted to leave a comment. I found You Are Here at a local bookstore and wanted to buy it but have been unemployed for a few months due to an illness doctors can’t (or won’t) diagnose. One day when I am feeling better and actually have spending money I will buy. It since I adore all of your work and appreciate a wonderful coloring book.


  434. Happy Booksgiving! I know I am too late to participate but still wanted to leave a comment.

One day when I am feeling better and actually have spending money I will buy. It since I adore all of your work and appreciate a wonderful coloring book.


  435. Unsurprisingly to anyone know knows me, I’m fashionably late to the party. I honestly look forward to Booksgiving every year, it makes me smile to think of the happiness someone else will get to open up their mail and find a much hoped for book inside. I’ll be back in the morning to hit the wishlists! I’ve got one book for myself and a book for my tween.

    (I’m in Canada for any fellow Canucks looking for a list or anyone who has prime and doesn’t mind shipping to Canada).


  436. I want to join the Strangling Book Club but things like food and medications unfortunately have a priority. My partner gifted me the first months book, so would I would love the 2nd months book!


    My partner is picking someone to send a book to. This is her first Booksgiving, I’m so excited to share and celebrate it with her!

  437. @Amanda Tellez – (Psst! Add an address to your wishlist so the wish can be fulfilled!)

  438. Nina Potts, you should be able to start your book club reading tomorrow.

    If someone wants to buy me a Booksgiving gift, here’s a poetry collection I’ve been hoping to read for several years now:


  439. I wish I could erase John Crowley’s Little, Big from my mind after every time I read it (twice yearly, usually) so that I could read it again for the first time.

  440. Yay! I love Booksgiving! Here’s mine. Can’t wait to find someone who doesn’t already have their book bought for them. LOL


  441. I have your books, so I put a book I’ve been eyeing for a while on my list. Now off to play booksanta for someone else! My second favorite holiday! Happy Booksgiving everyone!

    I absolutely love love love you and love your blog. It has restored my sanity many times and boosted my day so many others. I love the cards and notes and postcards I still receive from others in the Bloggess tribe that always appear just when I need them most.


  443. Smol note, because I am surprised at how many people don’t know about this: Buy from smile.amazon.com (if you are a prime member, sign in and it will automatically apply prime). When you buy from that smile site, Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase total to a charity of your choice. It seems small but it totally adds up when we all do it! =D

  444. I think I’m too late but in case I’m not, I’d love to read this Dan Brown novel and if I can ask for a book for my daughter too, she’d love this Harry Potter cookbook (huge HP fan and she’s really getting interested in helping me cook). Thank you!


  445. If you already have Jenny’s books, and need ideas for others, here are a few I recommend.
    You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero is wonderful for anyone who is struggling to recognize their own awesomeness and uniqueness. The Happiness Trap by Russ Harris and Lost Connections by Johan Hari both show that there are ways out of depression, if we change the way we think and the way we live.

    If you’re looking for fiction, anything by Neil Gaiman is fantastic Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is hilarious. For fantasy lovers, The Name of the Wind is an epic fantasy that will keep you hooked (don’t start this yet if you like to read all the books in a series at once – the third book in the trilogy hasn’t been released yet).

    (Can you tell that I love books?)

  446. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2C3K1XY3TVCO4?ref_=wl_share

    Here’s a book I would love! Trolling the comments now to find one for someone else! 🙂

  447. I’ve been eyeing this one for ages. Happy Booksgiving, everyone! Off to scope out your lists. 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1COHJYOE17M47?ref_=wl_share

  448. Done! Enjoy your coloring my friend! HAPPY BOOKSGIVING EVERYONE!

  449. Figured I would try one more time. I fear that my list was buried. Hoping for a little Booksgiving magic. I love this community and seeing all the love (of Jenny, of books, and of one another) gives me a little hope for society. Thank you.


  450. I’ve so been looking forward to Booksgiving this year! I’ll try one more time.


  451. RB / Comment #491 — Happy Booksgiving! Looked like a great pick, and I’m a sucker for cats. 🙂 Enjoy!

  452. If they haven’t been said, I’m recommending the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde! They are surreal adventure stories for literary geeks and they are amazing! Happy reading!

  453. I love this so much! If someone buys me a copy of “You Are Here” I promise to purchase a book for someone else, because that feels like so much more fun than just buying the book for myself. (Is that weird? That’s weird, but I love you all and know you won’t judge me.)

    Here’s my list: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1MLCLJABM04MI?ref_=wl_share
    Happy Booksgiving, my best-stranger-friends!

  454. Connor (44) Happy Booksgiving from a pansy Southerner! That book looks awesome, I’m tempted to get one for myself, if I could stop procrastinating for once.

  455. I hope I did this right! I’d love “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” to round out my collection. Thank you for everything you share, Jenny, and giving us weirdos a place to feel seen! <3

  456. Here’s hoping I didn’t miss Booksgiving

  457. This is actually for my sister…I already gave her Furiously Happy and she needs Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. Hope I did this right and also not a duplicate.

  458. Hello! I would love a copy of IMAGINARY FRIEND by Stephen Chbosky! Happy Booksgiving Day!! — https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2I3P731MRV56A?ref_=wl_share

  459. What a wonderful idea! I do not want any books. I tend to keep a low profile on the internet, It tends to allow me to blog more freely without attracting too much attention. I read many books in 2019 but hte one that has done the most for me is “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself”, by Michael Singer. It felt like it was written directly to me.

  460. Wyndi #452 book sent!!! Happy Booksgiving!

  461. Love this time of year! Neither of my local library systems have this book and I know a few people who want to read Gideon the Ninth besides me.

    oh and Samantha E #524 Happy Booksgiving!

  462. Looking for the missing link to my Bloggess collection:

    (hopefully I did this right)
    love you guys!

  463. Such a rainy dreary day – i even forgot to put my name on my post 527. Sara A 🙂 Booksgiving makes every thing better

    Sheryl Clark 515 Happy booksgiving to you too!

  464. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1DHW1GETPCU0X?ref_=wl_share
    Don’t hate me, but I don’t have ANY of your books, Jenny.
    I only put the first one on my wishlist, but I’m not picky…I’ll take any. 😃❤️

  465. I’m recommending a fantasy genre book written by a friend — he’s an excellent author and really needs encouragement to get the rest of the series written. 😀

    It’s called The Second Apprentice, by Kevin Lawhon.


  466. I popped through the list up to 351 and most of the early ones are filled or have comments from Jenny for repair. Maybe this will help people who are hen-picking for unfilled ones. I can do the rest when I get back from my daughter’s class (currently there are 525 comments). Also, quite a few kindle books without email addresses. So many filled lists!:

  467. I’m #334 but I’m not sure if my link works so I’m trying again!


    I’m a big fan of historical fiction, especially about the World War II era, and this book looks really good!

  468. Here’s the book I’d like this year…again there’s a purchasing freeze on me purchasing more Jane Austen themed books…but I need them all!!!!


  469. Serine23, as always, you are awesome and bring so much joy to events like Booksgiving. Thanks for being you!

  470. I love this. I would adore a copy of “You Are Here.” I’ve been unable to attend therapy so maybe therapy can come to me. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/8zAJKVv?ref_=wl_share

  471. Heres my list (Im in the uk)

    Ill go through the comments now and root out a UK person to send to seeings as i actually can this year <3

    Jen DeVincenzo

    First, thank you so much to the kind soul that got me a book <3 (I’m post 333)

    This is not for me, but for a dear friend who is also a stressed out super mom and could use something happy in her mailbox:


    For everyone buying books, you guys are rock stars!

  473. Ahh! It’s finally here! My sister and I look forward to this every year :). We share an amazon account to combine our libraries so I have two lists, with one selection from each of us if that’s okay. They’re both Kindle books

    Mine: Becoming by Michelle Obama

    Hers: Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

  474. oops, forgot my email address it’s iread78 AT yahoo DOT com for iread78 comment 541. I’m adding the email to the header in the lists as well

  475. Thank you Jenny. I freaking LOVE Booksgiving and look forward to it every year. I will be buying books for awesome folks out there and if someone would like to send me a book here’s my list (of one). Happy Booksgiving everyone!

  476. I only read on Kindle, but would love this next book in the series!


  477. @serine23

    I had some spare time so I went through the comments from 353 through 500. Happy Booksgiving! I noticed some reposts because the commenters thought their original one didn’t go through in which case I just included the initial comment

    I also marked kindle books for people who want to gift but don’t have prime

  478. Julie F from comment 356 – your book has been ordered!

  479. AJ-the-short-one – Looks like your book is coming from a 3rd party seller and they won’t let me buy as a wish list item. If you can find it sold from Amazon directly, you’ll probably have more luck. Sorry. 🙁

  480. Ooo! What’s the cutoff for this? Am I too late?!?

    Here’s my list!

  481. So, looks like I did the same thing as a couple of other folks (comment 421). I added my book to my “booksgiving” list not realizing it still had my 2018 and 2019 purchased books listed. I made a new list “booksgiving 2020” for this year’s book. I did leave the original booksgiving list up for transparency. Here’s the link for this year’s booksgiving. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1R1JNNLLFUVHV/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_5?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist

  482. Wooooah! So many comments! lol It’s probably already too late to put my wish here but what the hay! We’ll see if the bookgods are smiling down upon me! XD


  483. I thought I left a comment but I don’t see it….?

  484. Now I see it! lol technologyyyyyyyyyyyy 😉

  485. Two of my personal goals for this year were to read 6 books and interact more with peoplw. This book would help with both goals. 🙂

  486. 556

    Camilla message 254 I think your address is missin

  487. One of my favorite holidays. Looking forward to purchasing books for people and hopefully receiving one back in return. Happy Booksgiving 2020 🙂

  488. I’m #438. A kind someone bought my son a book (thank you!) and I wanted to comment about my daughter’s book because I realized the title is questionable. Despite the censored curse word, it is a self-improvement book about overcoming adversities and failures to keep trying everything. Thank you for considering her!


  489. I’ve tried to purchase so many books only to discover there is no shipping address. Please double check that you have an address assigned to your list.

  490. txmarina44 (comment 455) your book is on the way!

    anonymous (comment 470) your book is on the way!

    Cherie (comment 474) your book is on the way!

  491. I’ve clicked on a few and see my book list and then no book is listed. Does this mean it has been filled?

  492. I’m #251. Is there still something else wrong with my list?


  493. 564
    Stacey Brucale

    I’m a day late, but if anyone is still willing, I’ll add my book here:


  494. Happy Booksgiving! #431, #499, #537, & #552 are filled. I forgot to leave a recommendation too. With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo was a nice 5-star feel-good read.

  495. 566
    Stefanie Craig

    Booksgiving?! This is great. I’m actually new to this blog and haven’t read any of Jenny’s books. <3 <3 Happy Booksgiving!

  496. Stacey #564, I couldn’t tell by scanning your other wish lists if you have a Kindle. But just in case you don’t know, the book you want is available for $1.99 on Kindle. It was a monthly deal for this month.

  497. Someone commented that I had too many books on my list (I’m 432 from earlier). I wasn’t actually suggesting someone buy all of those books. I actually was trying to save two of them to another list to remind myself that i wanted to read or buy them later, however, as I stated, I wasn’t sure exactly what I was doing and was kind of just bumbling around in there. Sorry for my mistake. 🙁

  498. Would be great to get this bible as my walk with God is new and it has many features. However I know it’s a huge ask so I shall not expect it, I just know the Lord says you have not because you ask not, so I am asking. Much love to all.

  499. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3V6VHMBAY8R18?ref_=wl_share

    ❤️ booksgiving!
    For myself and 2 little ones…

  500. Amanda T. (Comment 496) – add an address to your wishlist so it can be sent to you! Hope you find the right doctor who can help you figure out what’s going on. I know how stressful that can be.

  501. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2SAK0AD3C33TG

    My book. Thank you all for this, I have literally waited all year for Booksgiving to make its way around again. I have work, but I’ll be back tonight to give folks books.

  502. Can anyone leave me a book suggestion for my 14yo niece who is going through a ton of shit in her life on top of being a teenage girl? Something therapy sequel that would let her know it’s okay not to value yourself by who does or doesn’t like you and that life will go on….and get better…..eventually?

  503. Not sure whether they’ll ever get around to wish lists that strangers can send books to (although… if you suggested it, they might? You are a substantial force, and that would be a fabulous option for next year’s Booksgiving), but I just read a Forbes article about Bookshop, which is working to create income for independent booksellers. It is already ticking along with, I would note, copies of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened on it. 🙂 (it might also be nice to sign Nowhere up for it? I do not know.)

  504. https://www.amazon.ca/hz/wishlist/ls/215SSZIKOW4IX?ref_=wl_share

    Sharing my list from Canada! I’ve just come out of a months-long depression relapse and could really use this book! 🙂 Happy Booksgiving to all!

  505. iread78 #541, check your email for your copy of “Becoming”! 🙂

  506. Judith comment 462, yes, if it is empty it means that the list has been filled! Good question!

  507. Ian post 563 & 251, your list is just fine, thanks for adding your email address to your kindle book. I don’t see anything wrong, I just don’t see a lot of giving at the moment 🙁 I’m sweeping through the list, and just saw 7 or 8 lists filled since this morning. Don’t give up hope! You are loved.

  508. basgetti Thank you so much! I’m so excited to start reading 🙂

  509. Having a really bad day, y’all. Tired to death of rain and being stuck in the house.


  510. Thanks, Serine. Just having a shitty day. I need to do something else, probably.

  511. I’ve been working on improving sex ed for my son and this would help! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/29T0QOJAZQTXI?ref_=wl_share

    Brian Van Horn

    Hi–I just noticed my list was flagged as something wrong by iread78 because it’s a preorder. We’ve filled preorders for others in past years for Booksgiving, so I didn’t know I couldn’t / shouldn’t request one.
    Should I request something else? My original post was 481. Thanks for your help!

  513. 586
    Rachel Dallaire

    Happy booksgiving! This is one of my favorite annual traditions.

  514. Hey Brian! I’m sorry that was a misunderstanding on my part – I wasn’t marking it as there being something wrong I was just marking it as something for wish granters to be aware of.

    because of the way Amazon has their systems set up you aren’t charged for preorders until they ship so people can be hit with unexpected charges weeks or months from when the order was placed. It may or may not be a concern but I wanted people to know as an FYI – sorry I wasn’t more clear!

  515. Hi iread78–Gotcha! Thanks for explaining; I just didn’t want to break any rules, and I was going to change it if I had done something wrong. Thanks for keeping an eye on the lists–much appreciated!

    I know it’s a little expensive, so if no one gets it for me, that’s cool, but I am DYING to have this book right now, and I can’t afford to get it for myself, so I figured it doesn’t hurt anything to throw it out there. If nothing else, maybe it’s something another knitter has never heard of and they’ll find they’re interested too?


  517. lana1967, comment 582, your book is on its way!
    Rebecca, comment 572, one of your books is on its way!
    Stacey Brucale, comment 564, your book is on its way!

  518. Is anyone doing a Google spreadsheet this year for the lists? I found that SO easy to gift from last year. If no one else is doing it, I may tackle it later on tonight, after I finish working.

    (If there has already been a conversation about this, apologies that I missed it, as I haven’t had a chance to actually read the comments yet. See working above. :D)

  519. Actually, lana1967, I’m not sure if you’ve changed your list. But I verified it once, and now that I look again, there is no email address in the comments on your Kindle book. Did your book change?

  520. I already requested a book for myself, so I hope this is allowed. I’d like to request one for my sister. She’s had a really tough year and could use a pick me up. I know this book isn’t out until June, but she’s OBSESSED with this author. If anyone would be able to fulfill this for her, it would be amazing.

    I love this group.


  521. Can I just say this group of people is incredible!!! Thank you all for making me smile and feel good today, especially the generous people who got the books for my mom and daughter.

  522. Could use a couple books for me and the little. Thank you so much

  523. Moonlight, #591, look at comment 533

  524. Kitten, #596 not exactly what I had in mind, but thank you! That’s at least a helpful place to start.

  525. Brian VanHorn (#481 & #585) gotcha. 🙂

  526. Hey Moonlight. I went through the list all the way to 453. (maybe someone will take over) Here’s a spreadsheet with all the posts verified and their links. I have to make dinner, but anyone can add/edit etc. that has this link. Does this help? Have fun everyone. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GyBBoxuL2N61-8pHdXtgD8EUy22CD00jBouqYNSo8Cs/edit?usp=sharing

  527. Sorry, I misspoke, spreadsheet (which anyone can use) is up through post 577, but I’ve only hand verified shipping addresses etc. through 453. Like the “master list” from previous years, but I don’t want to step on toes, just help people see what’s what and help each other out. Anyone can add/comment edit. Be aware the list is “live” so if you change it, it will save it that way! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GyBBoxuL2N61-8pHdXtgD8EUy22CD00jBouqYNSo8Cs/edit?usp=sharing

  528. Lana1967 I was going to get your book ordered for you but I’m thinking you didn’t put in an email address for the kindle? Cause it would only let me deliver it to my kindle. Hope you can get that fixed cause I’ll be looking back later. Best to you.

  529. Serine23, I should have known you’d have it all in hand. 🙂 I helped out with keeping it updated last year, happy to do so again this year!

  530. Mary (#593) Hope your sister’s year looks up. 🙂

  531. Kimberly (#32) you are my last. Have a great day.

  532. jstnthrgal–Many, many thanks! You’ve made my family very happy; my wife, daughter and I all enjoy this author, so this book will be very much looked forward to and enjoyed. Thanks for your kindness, and all the best to you!

  533. Jess, comment #589, happy knitting!

  534. Moonlight… I hesitated to do one because I feel like some people were grumpy with me before and I felt badly as I just want to be helpful. But anyone can use it or edit it, it belongs to Jenny’s community. Also, I would never want to step on Jenny’s toes or what she’s doing. I just think when people see it all at once it’s clearer and if it’s easy, they give more! I’ll try to hop on after dinner and help finish checking the remaining hundred or so lists.

  535. Lana1967 I so hope that worked! Happy reading and writing!

  536. Ack, my wish list is on the list showing as having a broken link. You think I would have learned by now lol! Also, I noted that my autocorrect spell Stephen King incorrectly. Bad Autocorrect!!

    My original comment was #305, hopefully, this link works:


  537. I added a book for me and one for my little girl. Thank you

  538. Jenny and other lovely participants of this post: THANK YOU! I don’t know if it was Jenny or someone else, but someone bought me You Are Here! Again, thank you! Thank you Jenny for providing a safe space for people to come together and shine in a dark, dark world. Love to you all.

  539. #472 your book is on its way!

  540. My absolute favorite time of year!! I would love to purchase for someone and have a wish book of my own as well. Happy Booksgiving everyone!!! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2YM32CK7FN9U8?&sort=default

  541. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GyBBoxuL2N61-8pHdXtgD8EUy22CD00jBouqYNSo8Cs/edit?usp=sharing
    Added the list from 577 to 616 but wasn’t able to go back and check for empty lists.

  542. I’m guessing I’m too late…
    My daughter and I love to colour together, and this would be such a special activity for us…
    I live in Canada – in case you didn’t figure it out by the extra “u” in “colour.”

  543. Thank you to whomever is updating the list! When you verify a request you can add it to the cart and see if they have an address, many of these later ones don’t have an address. Also, there is a person scamming Kindle books, which is really sad, since there are 170 people who haven’t gotten a book. Here’s the list folks if you need an updated list. I just pulled several more completed ones. Yay!

  544. I know I’m late, I’m sorry about that. I’m not asking for myself but rather my grandpa. He has wanted his own copy of Name of the Wind since I loaned him mine. It’s been awesome getting to talk to him and share one of my favourite stories. Thanks for considering Happy Reading! <3


  545. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1A9ACTWG5AP1U?ref_=wl_share

    A list for my wife & kids, I added a book for each child but they don’t mind sharing and we don’t mind used books if that’s an option. Thank you!

  546. Happy Booksgiving! I’ve read and loved Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened for years! I hope to add You are Here to that list too!


  547. Happy Booksgiving! I’ve read and loved Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened for years, and I hope I can add You Are Here to that list


  548. The most wonderful time of the year! Happy booksgiving everyone. I own all of Jenny’s books but I would like this one https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/7h1o7I1?ref_=wl_share

  549. 625

    Dearest Brigette 548-thanks for the suggestion ! I figured you were right, and that was why my wish sat sadly unfulfilled. So, I changed it and hopefully someone will be my Booksgiving Fairy now. Connie #459, you wish is granted. 💕https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/VYHQW0SHRXGE?&sort=default

  550. I almost missed it this year! Whoops! Happy booksgiving, everyone!


  551. I have never participated in Booksgiving before! I am so excited!!


  552. bg4lbr3ath your link is sending me to a collaboration. So will need to fix that.

    I’m just going to do some book pimpage here. I’ve written 3 historical romances set in the 1920’s. Check’em out. Not Looking for Trouble was written during my gangster obsession, Eye of the Beholder after watching Phantom of the Opera too many times and It Takes Moxie kind of has a Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, It Happened one Night kind of vibe. If you’re looking for something different, give them a try! Thanks

  554. I was 276 with a broken link. Here’s trying again. Happy booksgiving 📚

  555. Forgot link, sorry!!! 276 here again ❤️

  556. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2C3K1XY3TVCO4?ref_=wl_share

    Here is my list. I dont see it on the spreadsheet I checked but I may have overlooked it. I dont know if I screwed something up when I switched my book from the hardcover to the paperback edition, but I’ll try this again 🙂

  557. Got this morning started right and sent a book to Jenny Taylor, post 246!

    I just looked this morning (thank you to who marked a bunch fulfilled!) I found several more too! Oh, Canada, I see so many Canadian’s without books, won’t someone show them some love 🙂

    Here’s the list should you want it! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GyBBoxuL2N61-8pHdXtgD8EUy22CD00jBouqYNSo8Cs/edit?usp=sharing

  558. Ok I’m game. This is a book I want my daughter to read with me (hence the young reader’s edition). We are both into ballet so I thought it would be fun. It’s been on my saved for later list for four months. Lol. If no one gets it, I’ll buy it eventually. 😊. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/4w4Gczw?ref_=wl_share

  559. I’m so late! But maybe…
    (If I didn’t do that right, my name is Peggy Winterfeld and the list is called Bloggess Booksgiving.)

  560. Yay! It’s my favorite time of year!

    I’d love the following book. Now I’m off to find one to buy someone else!


  561. JR – #621 – your book is on the way!!!

  562. Man I think I missed my chance this year. Anxiety kicked my ass and I’ve been offline for the last few days. But if it’s still happening here’s my list for my husband, myself and our son in wi. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1OZN9RGP8W1FA/?ref_=lol_ov_le

  563. Yay! Booksgiving!!!! This is one of my favorite holidays — this truly made my year last year when I got my copy of Furiously Happy! 🙂 I love to read and would loooove a copy of this book with the intention to start a Literary Cocktails book club. 🙂

  564. Happy booksgiving, the best day of the year!!! 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/G8Q3MLECGG1W?ref_=wl_share

    Jen B., #185, Happy Booksgiving, enjoy!!!

  566. Happy Booksgiving Everyone!
    Thank you so much Jenny for everything! Reading Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend this Never Happened got me reading regularly again. I’m so happy to be in your book club. I read some of Neil Gaiman’s book when I was younger and I would love to add this one to my collection. ❤


  567. I would love a copy of Furiously Happy! 🙂
    My disability payments are temporarily suspended while Social Security does my 3-year disability review (scary!), so things are super tight right now. All good thoughts & prayers are welcomed! 🙂
    And here’s my wishlist with Jenny’s book 🙂

    Thanks & Hugs! 🙂

  568. I am really late to the party. Happy Booksgiving Everyone!
    From Canada here and sending out a couple surprises to my fellow Canucks right now. I realized I only have Jenny’s books in ebook form and would love a hard copy!
    Thank you!

  569. Anonymous at #195 your book is on it’s way!

  570. Diane B at #234/235 your book is on it’s way!

  571. I’m late to the party due to a stressful last couple of days. Does anyone overseas ne
