Q: It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are Thankful for - blogging related of course! Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?
I am thankful for my friend, clb. She was the person who most supported my idea of having a book blog. And when I got overwhelmed and started neglecting the blog, she was the one that reminded me how much I loved blogging. She brought me back.
I am thankful for my daughter, although I am not sure that I would say she has helped with the blog. Currently as I am writing (or more accurately trying to write) this post she is demanding my attention to help pack her backpack to go to our cousin's house for Thanksgiving. But she is a huge source of joy in my life--and reading with her before bed reminds me everyday of the importance of reading and how much fun it can be.
Books that I am thankful for reading...now that is a tough question.
I read Gone with the Wind in middle school--it was my first taste of an "adult" book (or at least what I thought of as an adult book at the time). I was hooked--who could not love Rhett Butler.
Revolution is one of the books that I read this year that really stuck with me. I could not get it out of my mind the way that Jennifer Donnelly brought the music alive in words and the way that she intertwined the French Revolution-era story with the modern-day story. I cannot wait to read it again!
And last but certainly not least--I have to list Outlander because I have been talking about it non-stop since I started it. It took me a while to get through, but it was worth every second!
