Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blog meme now hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl!
I don't have a list this week, but since this is typically where I'd make my 'thankful' post, I figured I'd include it here.
There are a lot of things I am thankful for this year and that I could talk about, but I really just want to keep it short and simple and thank all of my fellow bloggers from the bottom of my heart for being there this year to offer the comfort of books, friendship, and company. I want to sincerely thank every one who visits and/or comments on my blog even though I have been horrendous at timely responses and commenting on others' blogs as well these past few months--I prefer to be much more active, but life has been getting in the way lately and I'm just very thankful that people have still taken the time to visit my blog and engage in conversations with me. (And I'm done with school soon at least, so I'm personally really excited to do some blog catch-ups and be more active!)
And while we're at it, can I just throw out a huge thanks to the entire book community overall? (And authors and publishers! Let's not forget the fact that somehow authors are still putting together amazing work right now and keeping us sane and plied with books to read!) I don't need to talk about how crazy this year has been, but I do need to talk about how grounding and welcoming the entire book blogging community has been. Still posting, still hanging in there, still getting excited about worlds and stories and characters that aren't our own. I know a lot of us have needed whatever escape or relaxation from reality that we can get, and I'm glad we've all been doing it together. I'm not normally one to get too sappy or anything, but it has really meant a lot to me this year and I want to make sure every single one of you knows how much I appreciate it.
