Thankfully Reading Weekend -What Book Are You Thankful For?

I have been thinking about this question since it was posted. I think I finally narrowed it down to three books that I am truly thankful for. The list was quite extensive before I whittled it down to these three books which probably have had a huge influence on my becoming the reader I am today.

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder

I fell in love with Ingalls family long before they became a tv show. I still keep a set of the series on my bookshelves.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

I so love this book. I have several different editions. I used to tell people I was named for Beth. I was not but a young girl can always fantasize, right?

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

I can't even tell you how many times I have read this. Such a strong spirit.

These are the books that I am thankful for. These are the books I read and reread over and over again.

  1. I love every single one of these books!

    When I was growing up I read every single Laura Ingalls Wilder book too! I even gave a presentation on her in elementary school as I (LOL) considered myself an expert on her. I still adore her!

    Anne Frank made the Holocaust real to me in a way that no one else had. She was truly a beautiful soul.

    And I think Little Women is a pivotal book for any girl.

    Excellent choices!
