Friday's "Forgotten" Books--*more* post T-day Limited Edition set of links

Patti Abbott wanted to take the weekend off from hosting duties, at least in the FFB sense while presumably doing the feast thing (but enough people asked her to post a list that she did anyway)...those of us with just enough strength to type at a keyboard but not quite enough to drive to Virginia and back step in to gather those links that have passed out into the webderland for this least the ones I've seen...feel free to let me know if I've missed yours. It's a big week for Gilbert Parker, a phrase that might not've been uttered in the last half-century, at least; Woolrich is apparently a T-day favorite as well (albeit one each of these reviews is from far beyond our City on a Hill).

Thanks for hosting Todd - I've updated my post accordingly. I hope you're having a fine Thanksgiving weekend.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Sergio...and Patti did post a list, too, as it turns out, a few minutes after mine (I remembered she was hoping to, but thought she had tapped out by virtue of the first post today). My own T-day weekend has not been the best, but thanks again for the well-wishing.

A small milestone, coming up...sometime this weekend, this blog will get its 200,000th pageview, apparently.

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Todd, a belated Thanksgiving, and joy and happiness, to you and your family. Thanks, too, for posting the FFB links this week. And congratulations as well for the pageview milestone.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Prashant...and back at you with the benisons.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Congrats on the 200k milestone - well done mate.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, and the other contributors to these roundelays helped up those figures considerably, I think.
