Of course, we start out with the plainly obvious. I swear without books I would have never become the person I am today. Books are my love, my joy, my escape. I'm sure if not anyone else, all of you know the feeling of drenching yourself in a good story. I thank you, books. Much love.
I often think libraries don't get enough credit. But to me, they are literally my haven. I feel so at home and comfortable in them. I can put a book on hold, and bam, it magically appears before me. Kind of. But seriously, praise all libraries. (and librarians)
I cannot express in words how much goodreads has helped me as a reader and as a blogger. I have found some of the best books on it, and have met some of the best people. It's crazy. I can keep up with so many books!
4. Book Bloggers, Book Blogs, and Blogger
It's getting close to a year since I started this blog, and it's been super cool to see so many other blogs and get inspired by them, and find a community of people with so many similar passions. And well this blog wouldn't be here without Blogger.
Authors are some of the best people ever. They are so relaxed and chill and comfortable in their own skin. I have been inspired by so many authors that I've met, and without them, the books that we know and love would have never come to life.
6. Book Festivals/Book Signings
Anywhere that offers an opportunity to meet an author, I am thankful for. Without these festivals and opportunities, I would not have met so many inspiring, life-changing, awesome people and authors. I thank everyone who makes these things happen immensely.
So that's what bookish things I'm thankful for. But putting books and all aside, let's all remember that we don't just get the holiday because we want to go shopping or get fat on food. Let's make sure we remember and think about the things we are truly grateful for, and how fortunate we are. Thanks to you for reading this!
