Mark your calendars: according to some scholars the next time it might happen is the year 79,811. I’m talking, of course, about the hybrid holiday of “Thanksgivukkah.” The Borsch Belt-style Pilgrim jokes and mish mosh recipes (turkey brined in Manischewitz anyone?) are flying around the Internet; but since Jews are frequently referred to as “the people of the book” and Pilgrims pretty much lived by the book, Thanksgivukkah seems to me like the quintessential (stressful) family holiday to celebrate by escaping into a book. A couple of these recommendations are holiday themed; some are not—but all will have you saying “Thanks a lattke!” for the all-year-round gift of reading.
