Giving (Bookish) Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! Besides the obvious things I’m thankful for (family, friends, my education, my job, a warm home, food, opportunities, etc.) I’d like to share my bookish gratitude today. By the way, did you know that expressing gratitude actually can make you healthier and happier? It’s true. So be thankful today and every day and be sure to share what you’re thankful for in the comments!

Without further ado…

-I am thankful for Write Meg, the first book blog I ever read that inspired me to start my own blog and introduced me to a whole world of bookworms like myself. I remember the night I found Meg’s blog during summer 2009, I literally read the whole thing, all the way back to the very first post and knew I needed to know Meg. Now, I’m glad to call her a friend.

-In addition to the lovely Meg, I am thankful for all of my other book blogging friends who inspire me, introduce me to authors and books I’ve never heard of and share a love of reading.

-Of course, as book bloggers, we’re all thankful to publishers and PR people who understand the importance of book reviews and graciously send out review copies and ARC’s to book bloggers.

-And most importantly, I am thankful to each and every author whose book has made me laugh, cry, smile, yell, think, agonize over, get chills from, stay up until 3 a.m. reading even though I have work the next day and more. Thank you for getting the story out of your head and onto paper for everyone to enjoy.

-I am thankful for Kristin Walker, an author who took a chance on a college senior last February to do the publicity for her debut book launch, giving me loads of experience  and knowledge to take with me to my current job, as well as introduced me to my passion.

-I am thankful for all of the amazing resources/websites/people online that help writers to become better at their craft, learn the ins and outs of the business and provide much needed support to writers everywhere: agents and editors who blog and Tweet tips to aspiring authors, the founders of Write On Con, the masterminds behind NaNoWriMo (even though I didn’t do so hot) and all of the people online who understand the importance of sharing writing-related information.

-I am so thankful for each and everyone of you who read this blog, leave comments, follow and provide so much encouragement for me to continue reading and writing. It means more to me than you know. Thank you so much!

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for today?

  1. Jess, you’re too sweet! Thanks so much for the kind words. Blogging has brought so many wonderful people into my life, and I’m very thankful I can call you a friend. Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!

  2. A very meaningful post. An attitude of gratitude sounds like a self-help cliche but it works to have one. Writing is a lonely and solitary activity hence yes we should be thankful for the Internet and blogging, despite the chatter and information overload
