What book or author are you most thankful to have discovered? Have you read everything they’ve written? Reread them? Why do you appreciate them so much?
The obvious answer would be J.K. Rowling. I’ve read everything except some random forewords I know she’s written and whatever’s up next on Pottermore. I appreciate her the most for making reading cool again. I never would have thought that’d be possible, and I didn’t really care, but I’m so glad it happened. Harry Potter is fun and educational. What’s not to love?
On a less predictable note, I’m glad to have discovered Jason Evert. Reading If You Really Loved Me changed my life at a time I desperately needed it. He’s getting more mature and broad-focused as he ages and spends more time being a father, and I appreciate that. It’s making him a better speaker and writer.
