Thankful Quiz – guessing closed

I saw Christmas decorations last weekend and I wasn’t happy about it.  I love Thanksgiving, the quieter holiday that’s all about being thankful for what I have instead of the later, flashier holiday that’s all about what I want.  So, at the library yesterday and picked up books from the New section that had something on the cover that I was thankful for.  So, they’re all relatively new, taken from both fiction and nonfiction.  Give me the title and author if you can.  You’ll also get an extra point if you can tell me what it is on the cover that I’m thankful for 🙂

Leave your guesses in a comment.  Good luck!  I noticed after I downloaded the picture that I have two 9’s and no 10.  Go figure!

    I don’t like Christmas Creep – it ruins the holiday. A local home improvement store was displaying decorations in September, and last week they were playing Christmas music. Barf.

    I only know one book this week, and not because I’ve read it – just seen it on a few other blogs.

    4. A Window Opens by Elizabeth Egan.
