Booking Through Thursday: Thankful

btt button
Here is this week's Booking Through Thursday question: "It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. of A. so … What authors and books are you most thankful for?"

My answer: I'm going to be a bit off topic with my answer:  I am thankful for the ability to read. Period.  I am thankful that my parents always encouraged my reading and never censored it...except for that one Stephen King book  my mom thought was so horrendous I think she actually threw it out..I can't remember which one though....hmmm. I am thankful for the public library-both growing up in Winnipeg and now in Toronto. I am thankful for the second hand book stores in my neighbourhood as well as the independent stores. I am also thankful for the "big stores" like amazon  and chapters for making book buying convenient. I am thankful for every single person who asks me what I'm reading and then answers the question themselves. I am thankful for YOU my blog readers for following my reading adventures and for all of your comments and even for the comments that you think to yourselves but don't post on here!!


  1. I am so thankful for you writing this blog, I absolutely love to see what you are reading and doing and love other peoples comments. I am so grateful that my family loves to read, I think reading gave both my daughters a step ahead in education because of a larger vocabulary and helped to see others views of the world. We are so lucky to have access to books at libraries and when my children were little and I took them to the library, I also started to read more as well. I think we take literacy for granted sometimes and at Thanksgiving (October in Canada) it reminds us of the many gifts we have in our Country!

  2. I too am thankful for being able to read. I am also thankful for the enjoyment I get from reading. It amazes me how many people there are in the world who just don't enjoy reading and it makes me sad. I love books for their ability to allow you to fall into different realities.
