Thanksgiving Day is almost here and I thought it might be fun to select some books that celebrate the holiday in all kinds of ways. My choices include everything from goofy mysteries, a few romances, and even a couple that tell the true origin of turkey day. Be sure to grab one or two of what I would call my “casserole” of Thanksgiving titles off the display unit near the Checkout Desk.
