Thanksvember, Day 13

Today I am thankful for books. Books can be teachers, entertainers, conversation starters, bonding experiences, a way to escape and so much more. Books have been a big part of my life since my life began. Before I was even born, my brother Bill would ask our mother to read Curious George to ‘the baby’. I was read to a lot in my early life and I remember the excitement of learning to read by myself. When I was a child, I was constantly found lying around with a book. Even when I had friends over, I was reading. We would lie side by side and read our books. When we were done, we would swap books. I have fond memories of visits to the library and the bookstore. I cannot imagine not being able to read. Thank you to all who have written books, printed books, sold books and lent books!
