Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving here in the U.S.

Now, you may have noticed that the global economy isn’t exactly doing well. There’s war. Starvation. All sorts of bad, scary things going on.

So–just for today–how about sharing 7 things that you’re thankful for?

This can be about books, sure–authors you appreciate, books you love, an ode to your public library–but also, how about other things, too? Because in times like these, with bills piling up and disaster seemingly lurking around every corner, it’s more important than ever to stop and take stock of the things we’re grateful for. Family. Friends. Good health (I hope). Coffee and tea. Turkey. Sunshine. Wagging tails. Curling up with a good book.

So, how about it? Spread a little positive thinking and tell the world what there is to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for:

  1. My family and friends, especially my wonderful husband;
  2. Being healthy;
  3. A job and career I love and wouldn't trade for any other, and all the wonderful mentors and friends I've made in the process;
  4. My cat;
  5. Beautiful music- right now, listening to James Taylor sing "America the Beautiful,"
  6. America;
  7. Having the time every now and then to take time for a warm beverage and a good book.
And I'm thankful to be right where I am right now, doing what I'm doing. I feel so blessed in so many ways, it's hard to pin it down to just seven things. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Nice list! I didn't think of music. But, yep, I'm grateful for it too.

I love music too and didn't put it on my list. In addition, I'm thankful for BTT. Happy Booking Through Thursday, and have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

I didn't have time to check BTT this morning, but I had pre-posted a list of books I am most thankful for finding this year:
