365 Gratitude Project – Day 37: Books

February 6, 2017

I’m grateful for books and literature, for the written word which whisks you away to worlds and people unknown. I’ve always loved reading, I devour books, reading voraciously books from fantasy and sci-fi to Shakespeare and biography. Some of my favorite authors are Anne McCaffrey, Mercedes Lackey, Douglas Adams, Laura Ingalls Wilder, C.S. Lewis, Ursula LeGuin, Madeleine L’Engle…and so many, many more. Books let you experience lives not your own, they let you travel the world and the universe, they send you to the future or give you insight into history and the people who lived then. Reading gives pleasure as well as expands your education. Books teach you empathy and  compassion as you put yourself in someone else’s narrative and thought and reading helps build vocabulary through context over time. What a joy to lose yourself in a good read!
