Day 6 of #GratefulReads features a #BookGiftedToYou and I had to go with my Webster‘s College Dictionary my husband gave me on our first Valentine‘s Day over 25 years ago. It‘s one of the best gifts he has ever given me! ❤️

Day 6 of the #GratefulReads photo challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

#BookGiftedToYou - I‘ve received many wonderful books from my wonderful friend @Branwen over the years, including this beautiful edition of “The Talisman” that I had at my desk at work as part of my Halloween display!

As for why I‘m making the “shhh” gesture, well, I‘m taking this picture when I‘m supposed to be working, so please don‘t tell my boss! 🤫

#gratefulreads I have lots of books that fit today‘s prompt of #bookgiftedtoyou but this is one of my favorites. @Alisnazzy gave it to me for Christmas two years ago, and she made a terrific choice.

My awesome pen pal, @EmilyM sent this book to me in a Halloween package, and I‘m so glad she did! It‘s a wonderful story with memorable characters. It‘s so touching and gave me all the feels but there‘s also a bit of creepiness. A great Halloween/fall read!
