I've got plenty to be thankful for

Each month I write a monthly newsletter promoting books, programs, library resources, etc. This month my lead article was "books to be thankful for"- honoring the books in my life that I am thankful for because they have touched my life in some way, whether it changed the way I thought about something, or was a book that I needed to read at that particular time in my life. Here is my by no way complete list- what books are you thankful for?
