Featured Blog: Seth's Blog: A Thanksgiving Reader

NAME: Seth Godin
BLOG: Seth's Blog: A Thanksgiving Reader
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Seth Godin is a well-regarded voice in the world of blogging, and this holiday season he has something special to share; the Thanksgiving Reader. The file you'll find there is free, printable, sharable, and Seth hopes it might give us something universal and personal to do this Thanksgiving.

The idea is simple: At your Thanksgiving celebration (and yes, it’s okay to use it outside the US!), consider going around the table and having each person read a section aloud.

During these ten or fifteen minutes, millions of people will all be reading the same words, thinking about the same issues, connecting with each other over the essence of what we celebrate. After all the travel and the cooking and the hassle, for these ten or fifteen minutes, perhaps we can all breathe the same air and think hard about what we’re thankful for.

It’s free to download and share. I hope you’ll let some people in your life know about it and incorporate it in your celebration this year. There’s no commercial element involved—after all, it’s Thanksgiving.
