Of course, I'm also thankful for other things. I am thankful for the time I got to spend on this earth with my father, although it was cut much shorter than I ever expected. I am thankful for my mother's strength and determination while battling against cancer. I am thankful for being able to discover so many other parts of the world – and thus find my true self – so early in life. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to continue my education beyond four years of undergrad. I am thankful for my job at my local library. I am thankful that I found what I believe is my calling and purpose in life: to share the joy and importance of literacy with those who might not find it otherwise.
And, of course, I am thankful for books.
Books can make all the difference in a person's life, and today seems like a good of day as any to share with you this list of books that proves reading can change lives.
I, like many others, have food to eat and people to be with on this delicious day, so I'll leave you with that.
I'm wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! May your lives, cups and bellies be full today and every other day of the year!
