Why I’m Thankful for Books
Thanksgiving season I issued a challenge to list reasons to be thankful
for books. In fact, I think books top the list for non-breathing
objects of my gratitude—it even seems as if books do
breath. When I learned to read, new
worlds opened up to me. Even though I grew up in a town of 4,000
people, I felt like the entire world was as close as the nearest book.
