Today I am thankful for books. They have been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. Some people have security blankets, I have books. I love everything about them, the feel of them, the smell of them, the sight of them and especially the words that they contain.
A friend of mine told me recently that she thinks that readers are a bit arrogant because they think they know everything! (She meant this in a completely humorous way.) I have a sneaky suspicion that she might be on to something. I've always felt like if I could read about how to do something then I would be able to do it. (Drives my husband crazy!)
If I had to choose one of my greatest accomplishments it would be passing on the love of reading to my children. I'm now doing my duty to make sure that my grands love it too. A lot has changed about reading. The grands love to read on my Kindle and my smartphone. But a lot has stayed the same. Snuggling up with your favorite person to read an engaging story is the best place to be!
I can't resist showing you a couple of my favorite pictures of my grands reading!

The other members of the family like to read too but I just didn't have pictures of them at my fingertips!
Now it's your turn. What is your favorite book?
