Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Bookish things I'm thankful for

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl


Topic for November 20, 2018: Thanksgiving Freebie – So I’ll interpret that as Top Ten Bookish things I’m thankful for

10. That some authors resist the urge for the Happily Ever After ending
9. That some authors still do end with Happily Ever After
8. That Artsy Reader Girl for carrying on Top Ten Tuesday
5. For rereads
3. That no one has made a remake of Gone With the Wind
2. That screenwriters for The Lord of the Rings respected the author and rejected the producer who wanted to kill off one of the Hobbits
1. The Number ONE thing I am thankful for, in bookish terms:  my sixth-grade teacher Ms. Tina Banks of Burke School Elementary, who instilled in me the love of reading.

  3. Interesting interpretation of the meme topic!
    Agree with no. 10 and 9, some story deserves happy endings, but some others are better with sad endings.

    No. 6 though... :)) That will ruin both books!

    1. Used to be I didn't reread much, but I've discovered some books are better on a reread.
