6 Influential Books to be Thankful for

Try using the arrow keys

At Thanksgiving, there is so much to be thankful for — namely, sharing a huge hoard of ridiculously rich and heavy foods with the people in the world that we love and appreciate the most. Company and chow are obviously important, and they inspire a daily sense of gratitude, but this holiday, let’s be thankful for books too. These books. Because these six books are not merely books we read, enjoyed, and think on from time to time. They are books that did something, that changed something in a huge way — and for the better. Without them and their influence, the world we live in today would be different, and markedly less good. Thank goodness for these books.
