Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day to reflect on what we are thankful for and to show appreciation. It is also a day fraught with problematic history, stressful family situations, and so much other baggage. For some, the holiday is pleasant, and for others it is something that we long to just get past. While I am not much for the holiday, I do want to express thankfulness all year round. So, in this post I am taking time out to tell you about some of the books that have inspired and touched my 2016.
