Thirty Days of Thanks for Books – Day 12

1984“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”

~ George Orwell, 1984

For the month of November, I’d like to give thanks to some of my favorite books.  Key word being some because unfortunately there isn’t enough days to honor all the books I love.  So I’ve issued myself the challenge to do thirty days of thanks for books… and today I am thankful for…

Day 12 – 1984 by George Orwell

I had a friend recommend this book to me, to which in return I scoffed at them.  Science fiction, psh, that’s too out there for me.  Space travel.  Aliens.  Alternate universes.  No thanks.  She told me to shut up and read it… best advice ever.  Because this is the book that hooked me onto science fiction and I’m so thankful it did.  Who would have thought this dystopian novel about government control in a futuristic society (think big brother) would be so interesting.  Not me, that’s for sure.  But I was wrong… so very very wrong because I’ve read it multiple times since that first fateful day.  And I love it every time!
