Gratitude Day 7

Currently I am "reading" 4 books (I use the term loosely because I haven't picked up one or two of them in a while, but they still have a bookmark in them, and they are still sitting on my nightstand, and one of these days I'll pick them back up):
  • Maphead by Ken Jennings
  • Redwall by Brian Jacques
  • Dorian by Nephi Anderson
  • Press On by Joseph B. Wirthlin
I was thinking about what I was grateful for today, and thought about how thankful I am for good books, and the variety of reading that is out there. And I realized that my nightstand is a pretty good sampling of my varied taste in books. I like non-fiction, I like young adult, I like children's, I like religious, I like classics. I like to read books written by my great-grandfather, because how cool is that? Not everyone gets to read a book written by their ancestor. I like a little bit of everything. Though, I generally shy away from adult fiction unless I have a recommendation, mostly because of sex scenes and the swears.

The point is, I am always reading something, and I hope to keep it that way. My "to read" list is too long to do otherwise. And I'm grateful that there is so much good reading out there.

Hey - I just finished Dorian a couple weeks ago! You will have to let me know how you like it.
