It's that time of year again: Thanksgiving, when we all start thinking more about the things we're thankful for. We're grateful for a lot of things, some of them funny and, yes, a little off the wall.
When you're going around the table naming things you are grateful for this Thanksgiving, be sure to try out some of our ideas!
I am thankful for . . .
1. My broken ereader, because now I have an excuse to get a newer, better one for Christmas.
2. Toilet paper, which serves as a great bookmark when I've lost all my other ones (and doubles as a tissue when needed during the story).
3. My imagination, which makes books so much better than the movies.
4. Holidays, which mean more time to read books!
5. That I dropped the slice of pizza in my lap instead of on my book.
6. My phone, so I can use the backlight to read a book at night.
7. Ink. And paper. For the books, of course.
8. Sand, because it reminds me of reading a book on the beach.
9. A cluttered house, which means more stacks of books to read.
10. Opposable thumbs; seriously, holding a book without them would be incredibly difficult.
11. My children, who give me a great excuse to revisit my favorite children's books.
12. Microwaves, so I can heat up a hot drink or leftovers for dinner and get back to reading right away.
13. Netflix, so my spouse can be entertained while I finish reading that book.
14. Authors' imaginations; there's only so much reality I can cope with.
15. The bathroom, so I can have somewhere to escape when I want to finish just one more chapter.
16. Hide-and-seek because it takes my kids 30 minutes to find me AND gives me time to read a chapter behind the couch.
17. An electric fireplace that is constantly breaking so I can save money on heat bills and exercise my imagination when I curl up to my "warm" fireplace with a book.
18. My husband when he takes the kids on fun nights out so I can secretly read in peace.
19. Books so I can go on adventures I can't afford and experience falling in love with my dream man.
20. Memes about reading, because, seriously, I can't get enough of reading.
21. Two hands—one for chocolate and one to hold my book.
