Thankfully Reading challenge is talk about the book you're thankful for this year.
I don't know exactly what it means to be thankful for a book. Maybe that you're glad you read it, or it affected you somehow. Like changed your life or something? Nothing has really changed my life this year in terms of reading; reading has been a low-key thing for me and more of a personal thing than a public thing, since I'm no longer working in the book world and have fewer opportunities to share what I'm reading.
My favorite book this year is Andrew Ladd's What Ends, because it's one of the books that reminds me why I love reading. It combines unforgettable characters with a vivid setting and lyrical, luminous writing alongside a plot about both coming of age and coming apart.
This year I've read several of Aira's books and the one that stands out the most is The Conversations, about two friends trying to figure out what was going on in a movie they saw on TV but didn't really pay attention to.
