    I’d never able to pick a book I’m most thankful for, but at this moment I’m thankful for Les Standiford’s “The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits.” It’s a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at how Dickens came to write his carol and how it has affected the way the world celebrates Christmas. It’s a perfect way to start out the holiday season.

    Here’s my first post:

    I’m thankful for “A Knight in Shining Armor” by Jude Deveraux which got me started reading again after a long hiatus.

    I am thankful that I can read and that I’m always learning things from books. I did manage to narrow it down to only a few books for my post.

    Okay I’m having a hard time trying to pick just one book. I have so many that have made an impact on my life as a writer.
