Booking through Thursday

This is the post today,

It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S.A. today, so I know at least some of you are going to be as busy with turkey and family as I will be, so this week’s question is a simple one:

What books and authors are you particularly thankful for this year?

That is a difficult one , looking back over my list read this year many books could be included, but I will keep the list short ----

First is
Enchanted April .This was a wonderful book, pure escapism. I will have to read it again.

The next one is
Black Diamond. I don't normally read nonfiction, but this was a great portrait of mining communities in the 30's. Landowners v miners, a mix that created much anguish.

I am grateful for all my books but the above two are special. 'Enchanted April' for it's ability to lighten my mood and appreciate human friendship and 'Black Diamond' as it showed me how grateful I should be for my own working/living environment.
Great books, highly recommended.

Pure escapism sounds wonderful, direct and to the point.
