30 Days of Gratitude--Day 1

I did this last year (click HERE to read the first one, or just search "30 Days of Gratitude" in the search box) so I'm going to do something a little different this year. I'm going to write about something I'm grateful for every day for 30 days, but I can't repeat anything I said the last year. :) Shouldn't be too hard.

Today I'm grateful for . . . Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It’s such a simple, sweet, heartbreaking book that’s very character-driven (my favorite kind). You feel so much for these characters that you’re almost surprised to find that they’re fictional. You get so attached to them that they’re almost like your best friends, no, family. I finished it wishing I hadn’t, because I couldn’t ever read that book again for the first time.

What a great book! I know Mommy keeps talking about it, but it is a fantastic book. I'm looking forward to reading Fangirl, once I can get my hands on it!

I went to the library Saturday and was disappointed that this book wasn't there and that there were something like 20 holds ahead of me, so I didn't even bother. I think I'll go buy it.
