Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday has posted an interesting question:


It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. of A. so …
What authors and books are you most thankful for?

The books and authors that I am thankful for are:
• Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte because it was the first adult classic novel that I read and fell in love with.  I have read the book at least 3 or 4 times
• Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because without her I wouldn't be able to enjoy seeing Colin Firth in a wet shirt
• East of Eden by John Steinbeck because it was a book that I was hesitant to read after reading The Grapes of Wrath and it was a book that when I have read it, I couldn't wait to get back to.
• The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood because without that book, I probably wouldn't have gotten through lunch time in Grade 10.
