Thankful for. . .


Books.
A book that I re-read and never tire of, like Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher
A classic, like Persuasion by Jane Austen
A book on writing, like The Writer's Portable Mentor by Priscilla Long
A book of wondrous poems, like those by Nobel Prize winner Wistawa Szymborska
A great book of short stories, like Runaway by Alice Munro
A book that makes me feel like I'm living abroad, like Italian Neighbors by Tim Parks
A book that is written by a real pro, like The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke
A book to entertain me like Worth Dying For by Lee Child
A book that give me perspective, like When a Family Member has Dementia: Steps to Becoming a Resilient Caregiver by Susan M. McCurry.
A book that feels like home, like Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
Have a blessed holiday, everyone!

Hi, Rebbie,

I love your book selections! They are books I've also read and enjoyed and love to read again. Have a happy gobble gobble day! We have much to be thankful for.

Hi Rebbie: Nice list of books here. I've read a few of them, but not nearly enough. My TBR pile runneth over. Thanks for sharing, and have a nice Thanksgiving.

Neat. And some books I don't know there to add to my list.
