This week I am thankful for my love of reading. The enjoyment that I get out of sitting down and reading a book has enhanced my life immeasurably. It provides me with an escape outlet to other worlds, time periods and places. When I’m having a rough day, or I just need to get away without spending big bucks, I can open up a well-written book and get lost in it. Reading has educated me – thankfully enjoying a wide range of book genres has helped. By reading biographies, I have gotten to know famous people. By reading business books, I have learned about the intricacies of business, the management of people and how to make ideas work. By reading dog books (non-fiction), I have learned an immense amount about training, health, structure, behaviour and various breeds.
I enjoy reading books, magazines, newspapers and blogs. This love of reading has led me to enjoy crossword puzzles and word searches, as well as to enjoy writing. I have a bigger vocabulary than most of the non-readers I know, and I can spell very well.
So I’m thankful for my love of reading, and everything it has added to my life.
