Books We’re Thankful For 

November is a season of giving thanks and of being grateful for the many good things we have in our lives.  This November, we’d like to take the time to think about the books that have shaped our lives, came to us when we needed them the most, and gave us joy.  Is there a particular book that you are the most thankful for? 

While I’m thankful for all books (seriously, one of my greatest joys is being surrounded by both read and unread novels), I think that the book that I am the most thankful for is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.  This classic novel is one that I have read many times and always come back to. The first time I read this book was in my high school English class.  The dark gothic love story gripped me.  In my college years I re-read it again, and then once more in my adult years.  This novel taught me the power behind language and how timeless literature could be.  It also made me realize that I have a fascination with British Literature and with the other Bronte sisters as well. 

Here’s what a selection of Livingston Public Library staff members are most thankful for: 

Katie, Head of Adult Services & Acquisitions: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, #1). It never fails to make me laugh or transport me to another place.

Anna, Head of Youth Services: American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

Joe, Adult Services & Acquisitions Librarian: I’m extremely thankful for The Portable Dorothy Parker.
