Well, I'm thankful for all books, but especially these:
The Box Car Children: because it sparked my imagination as a kid and made me forever fascinated with the idea of living in a box car
The Hiding Place and The Diary of Anne Frank: because they made the Holocaust real to me.
Anne of Green Gables: because I learned that books can just be fun and happy
Harry Potter: because it was so fun to be part of a world-wide book club!
Howard's End: because I will remember it as the first book I read with an online community
Twilight: because it gets people talking about books with much emotion and passion, positively or negatively!
The Tale of Two Cities: because it was the first book I remember discussing with a class and therefore becoming extremely attached, invested and emotionally involved.
Good Night Moon: because it was my favorite book to read to my little kids
The Enchanted Cup: because it was the first book I remember just grabbing off the shelf and ending up loving. It also began my love for the Tristan and Isolde story.
The Book Thief: because it showed me that writing can be so much more than just.... writing. (NEWSFLASH!!! I'm hearing that Markus Zusak will be coming to the library in March!!! I'm still in shock over this news!!)
The Maze Runner: because it's the first New York Times bestseller where I can say "Hey, I know that author!"
Seabiscuit: because it proves to me that you never know what sort of book you'll love ( a non fiction book about horse racing? Who knew?)
The Kite Runner: because it taught me that I can love love love a book, while others can hate hate hate it!
Ender's Game: because it demonstrates the "blow you away" ending in a big way
Okay okay, I'll stop now! What books are you especially thankful for and why?
