It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., so … what are you thankful for this year, reading-wise? New, favorite books? New gadget for reading? New comfy chair? Bonus time to read? Just the mere fact of BEING a reader? Having the internet to share ideas/recommendations/conversations about books?
I am grateful for books, for publishers who send review copies, for a library that lends them, for bookstores where I can browse and buy them. I am grateful for my vision which allows me to read. I am grateful for a couch in front of a fireplace, where I can curl up under a blanket and read. I am grateful that my children are readers just like their Dad and I are and that they get just as excited over a new book as we do.
There are many things to be thankful for and I will leave you with my FB post for today which shares what is in my heart:
Today, I am so grateful for family and friends. My amazing husband and sons. My wonderful mother and my sweet father who I miss every day. My sisters and brother-in-law and my adorable nieces and nephews. Good conversations and lunch dates. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and a free country that allows me to worship as I please and those men and women who continue to serve and keep it free. A warm home, food on my table and books to read. Love and friendship. I count each of you a blessing in my life and wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.
