30 days of thankfulness, Day 12: Thankful for books
Those early days of reading were filled with Hardy Boys books, Bobbsey Twins, Boxcar Children, and other such books. As I got older, my reading tastes changed and eventually leveled out to where I read mostly Christian fiction.
I have no idea how many books I have read over the years, but it is a lot. It has been an escape, a good use of my time. I have traveled to places through books that I will never be in life, I have learned things through reading that I would not have learned otherwise.
People may look at we readers and wonder how we can do it, why we would want to do it, and think it a waste of time. Meanwhile, I look at other people and wonder why they don't read, why they waste time and money doing THAT, and consider myself better off reading than to be caught up in other methods of spending time.
So on day 12, I am very thankful for books (REAL books, not e-books!), for my love of reading, and just wish I had more time to read the tons of books out there I will never have time to read.
