The Blog Hop (#2)

This Week's Question:
"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

Well, I can say, that I have had a profound experiece that others have had when reading a book, but reading a book has changed my life. It may sound strange but the first Harry Potter book, the Philosopher's Stone, changed my life, as it was this book is what started my path to becoming a bookworm. I used to never read books (unless for school and really then it was touch and go). But this book opened up my eyes to the world of reading and the escape it could provide.  So I guess what Harry Potter gave me was a way to escape the bad things that were going on in my life. Now many (many many) years later, I can't get enough of reading. So Thank You J. K. Rowling.

CHEERS!!!!

  1. This will probably come of something as a surprise but the book that changed/influenced my life (more than any other) is a non-fiction book. I know we all focus on novels and the fanciful fiction we love to read but The Four Work Week is the book that gets all the credit. I know the title sounds fictional but it really isn’t. Hop over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!
