Feature And Follow Friday (6).


Question: It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are Thankful for - blogging related of course! Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?


Living in Australia we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, however I am still thankful for all of my follower's I'm grateful for each and every one of you, I'm also thankful to know that there are people who love reading as much as I do (I'm the only one in a house of 5 that really reads).
I'm grateful for the 'Twilight Saga - Stephenie Meyer' for getting me out  of my reading slump and introducing me to my favourite book genre Paranormal.
And I'm especially thankful for 'sparkly vampires'.

  1. It's hard being in a house w/o readers! I have one family member that reads some, but none that read quite as much as I do. Thankfully there is blogging!

  2. Mwaha! Sarah, Thanks for stopping by--I'm more scared of my TBR pile than thankful!

    My husband doesn't read (he hasn't read ONE novel in the entire 10 years I've known him).

    I'm also SOOOO grateful for Twilight! I know people love to pick on it and hate it, but it opened up a whole new world of reading for me. Like you, it opened my eyes to the Paranormal genre. And you know what? I liked it. I still like it. I enjoyed reading those books. Hell YES to sparkly vampires.

  10. Here to follow you back :0)

    I'm the only one in a house of 4 that reads. One is too young, the other is just learning, and the biggest child (my hubby) reads magazines and gaming books. So, I'm not sure how to count that, LOL. But I agree, talking book with others is fun :0)

    Happy FF!
