Book Beat, Book Life

Thankful for…


I’m a day late, but I still don’t want to get into the whole issue with Thanksgiving Day and its misconstrued history. Instead, I thought I’d go along with the “thankful” theme and reflect on all of the joys and blessings I have encountered in my life for the year, book related and not book related.

Here is a small list of what I am thankful for:

  1. Books by people of color
  2. New opportunities
  3. Doing things that are out of my comfort zone
  4. Podcasts
  5. Literacy
  6. Immigrants
  7. Going to poetry readings
  8. Chicago public libraries
  9. Vegan YouTube
  10. Book Tube
  11. Long CTA rides/reading time
  12. Cafes with free WiFi and delicious chai tea
  13. New foods
  14. Museums
  15. Trying to eat better and workout more
  16. Friends, family, and my dog

The year isn’t over, and while I know everything is unpredictable, I’m trying my best to be my best. I hope everyone out there is too! We all have a lot of blessings, even when it doesn’t seem like it.
