I am fortunate to be a reader, and even more fortunate to have free access to books. I read and review books for the Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children’s Media. I get new books to read and review every month of the school year from this group, and some of those I get to keep for my school’s library.
I receive eARCs for review from Netgalley to review. My eReader is full to bursting with new books to try.
I get many books in print and on audio from my public library. As far as spending money on books, I am also close to not one but two amazing independent bookstores, as well as the big box guys who carry books.
This is a little snap grabbed today, of just a few of my piles of books (the pile beside the bed is embarrassingly large, and I couldn’t bring myself to photograph it…).
I am fortunate. I don’t have to work hard to have access to books, as some in our world do.Today, I’m feeling grateful for the bounty of books I have at my fingertips, and humbled at what that means for me and the richness of my life.
