Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'm Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 
Each week features a book related topic that offers the opportunity to spotlight your Top Ten. 

Topic:
Books you are thankful for! 

There are actually many books I am thankful for. As a child, I had issues reading, I am dyslexic and have a processing disorder. So, it made reading very difficult. Once I had the tutoring and teaching I needed to help over come and work with and around the issues, I was able to dive into reading with a passion. My Grandpa, Mom, and Aunt all helped me in finding books that I loved, so because of them, there are many books I am thankful for. 


 Charlotte's Web, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe were bought for me when I was first learning to read and they hold a place in my heart. The Little House Series and Love Comes Softly Series were both given to me as gifts after I had become stable in reading and they were the first real novels I devoured. Mara: Daughter of the Nile was the first school book I enjoyed. The books by Stephen Bly opened up the world of Christian fiction for me. If I hadn't read his stories, it would have taken me longer to find the books I love now. 

You may be wondering why you see Twilight on my list. I went through a rough patch and hadn't read a book in a few years. This series helped me get back into reading. From there I read Harry Potter and Outlander. These stories got me back into reading and I'm thankful for that. 



What are you thankful for this week?

Lots of great picks on this list, Kate. Of course, the Narnia series is one that I adore. In fact, seeing it on your list reminds me: I have as yet to finish this series! Best finish those soonish because the ones I did read were amazing. :)
