Today is Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, the day before a looong weekend, and two days before all the Christmas sales start. As you think of the many blessings you have, don't forget to include your favorite books. Reading is your chance to relax and forget about homework and chores. As you read, you journey through another world or another time. You make new friends and sometimes meet a few characters you don't like. In America, we have the freedom to choose what we read, which gives you the chance to set aside a book if you don't like it. So give thanks for all the wonderful books you've read and those just waiting for you to open them up!
