The Book I Am Most Thankful For

Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe, is doing a super huge book giveaway contest. It's super. And it's huge. The grand prize is a whopping nineteen signed books (with at least one ARC in there), a box of Turkish Delight, and whole pile of swag. Awesome, right? All you have to do to enter is blog about the book you are most grateful for. So without further ado, here's mine:


Little Women by Louisa May Alcott


This is kind of an odd choice because it's not my favourite book ever. It is definitely on the list, but it doesn't top it. I am grateful for this book because it is an example of one of the many books that my parents (in this case, my mother) read to me as a child. Books and reading have always been a really big part of our lives, and I owe that entirely to my parents. I remember many trips to the public library as a kid with my parents. Sometimes it was to check out books, but many times it was to purchase a truckload of books whenever they had major book sales. You know, one of those fill a box and pay some ridiculously low price kind of book sales. For as long as I can remember I've been surrounded by books thanks to parents who felt that reading was so, so important. That's why I choose Little Women as the book I'm most grateful for. It could be any number of others that were read to me, but this is one of the ones that stands out the most in my memory.

  1. I love how your post describes the books you're grateful for and your gratitude to your parents for surrounding you with books a kid. I'm thankful to my parents, too, for sharing their love of books with me.
