Posted on: January 31, 2009



This week’s Thursday’s Thought’s Question Of The Week Comes From…

So… what will you win this week?

What’s great about how Carrie’s chosen topic?  Well, in my opinion, we just held an inauguration plus  February has Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday and George Washington’s Birthday… so, we get to celebrate President’s Day on the 16th!  We’re just in a presidential mood here at Thursday’s Thoughts!

What else do I win?

For Mr President, I would request that he read the Bible.
Why? Because he seems to be so influenced by other religions. I would like for him to study the Bible (with an open mind) in hopes that he would follow the word.

I would chose the same for Michelle. Perhaps they could do a study together!

Not to get all Family Feudish on you, but I’d have to chime in with “Good answer, Good Answer!” to Darby’s above. 🙂

I’ve posted this on Win A Book. Don’t enter me in the contest.

I’d have them read my Demo Tapes: Year 1, of course. Just because it’s fun and escapist and we all need that. (and there’s no need to enter me, either. I’m just dropping in to have some fun!)

I got mine up! This one was really fun to do because I got to talk about some of my favorite things: the 1960s and social policy!

I also subscribe to both of your readers. 🙂 Have a great week.


I blogged my answer here

I also subscribe to both Thursday Thoughts and Novel Menagerie RSS feeds and I used the Obama logo on my post. Thanks for the giveaway!

I just added a suggest for Mrs. Obama as well

I would suggest that he read something relaxing that’s not job-related, so my suggestion is that he read Marley & Me by Josh Grogan. I know that it made me laugh and cry and appreciate my dog so much more. Plus this way the president will know what he’s in for if he brings an untrained lab into the White House. Can you imagine Marley in the White House? 🙂

For Mrs. Obama I would recommend the Outlander series. There’s nothing like escaping the realities of life with some time travel and a romance with a hunky Scottish warrior.

(I subscribe to both feeds, but I don’t know if you are talking about new subscribers or not.) 🙂
