The first mini-challenge of the Thankfully Reading readathon asks what book we’re most thankful for, and why.
I’ve read so many influential books in my life, but the first one that came to mind was Les Feinberg’s Stone Butch Blues. It was my inauguration into the world in which I am now deeply and lovingly ensconced, the world I didn’t know was mine until I discovered it within the pages of this book. Every time I read it, I find myself relating to it in new and different ways, learning more about my community of friends, my relationships with my lovers, my own innermost self.
What book are you most grateful for?
