Monday Roundup: Thankful for Books

Hello Wormers! I'm happy to have my week at the Bookworm land on Thanksgiving week. I'm very thankful for books, and for the joy and intellectual illumination that they give my spirit and soul.

These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves.~ Gilbert Highet

My selections this week may have elements of Green to them, and just a few that I'm just plain thankful to have read. Pictured above is Beatrice's Goat, a book that I used this year at a guest storytelling gig for a Heifer benefit. I'm thankful for this book as it illustrates how the power of a simple gift changes lives for the better.

What books are you thankful for this week? They don't have to be only Green, but could be books that move you, help you, or just make your life better. Let us know in the comments, and we will be mighty thankful.

How wonderful that you do storytelling and I love the quote - minds alive on the shelves. This week I'm thankful for brussel sprouts and pancakes and haven't even thought of picking up a book. But the week is still young.

I never got my "book that I'm thankful for" post up, and I don't have it, yet. :( But this week I'm in my hometown with my parents for thanksgiving and I'm very happy for family. Been too busy to blog. :)
