I came across this via Jenny's Chocolate Chunky Munkie. Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe, is giving away 19 signed books to tie in with Thanksgiving. And her only request (aside from the contest entry requirements which you can find here) is that you share with others the one book that you are most grateful for! How cool is that?
And so, the book that I am most grateful for is... *drum roll*
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
It's the first book that introduced me to the addictive world of epic fantasy series books. The first book that I read about magic, wizards and witches (one that I picked myself anyway!). The first book that I hid behind a school text book during classes so I could keep reading. The first book that kept me awake until the early hours of the morning - and the first book I read by torchlight so that my mother didn't know I was still awake! The first book that I actually fell in love with.
Which book are you grateful for?
