Seize the Tuesday #4: Being Thankful

Seize the Tuesday is a book blogger meme created by myself and the Let’s Get Lost Buddies Street Team, to share stories about how we’ve seized the Tuesday, with a special focus on the particular book we’re reading. We’ll share our posts online with the hashtag: #LetsAllGetLost
The idea is to share little ways in which you may have embraced Bree’s motto of seizing the Tuesday. To relate it to books, you can talk about what book you’re reading, and how you stole some moments from the day to enjoy reading. It doesn’t have to be about reading, but we all know that a well-read day is a day seized. The idea is not just to help spread the word on LGL, but also to remind people to live fully, even/especially if that means spending a part of your day reading.

I've just finished the latest book of my favorite MG fantasy, and am about to start HOW WE FALL by Kate Brauning, and today's post was going to be about the joyfulness of taking a break from YA to indulge in the wonders of MG, when I realized that Thanksgiving is in... um... TWO DAYS?!

So, how about a Thankfulness post?

We have so much to be thankful for every day, and when you really think about everything we have, you see how much that you really do take for granted. The air we breathe, the power of technology, our health. But today I want to take a moment just to be thankful for one of the most important things in all of our lives: Books.

We are bloggers. Readers. Authors. Editors. Publishers. And general fangirls. Books ARE our lives. So much work goes into making these bound treasures, from the author who writes the story up, all the way to the printers, binders, and distributors. Today I want to give a big gigantic thank you to everyone and anyone involved in the process of creating a book, for helping to enrich our lives. Where would we be without you?
