Book Blogger Hop (7/1/2011)


As always, this meme is being hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question comes from Ivan over @ Ivan Bookworm:

"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/ change you?"

My answer:

The one that I think of first is Who Moved My Cheese? for Teens by Spencer Johnson. It's about four mice who find this place with a bunch of cheese. They eat like kings, but then it runs out and they have to find food. Two of the mice stay behind and wait for more cheese to appear, while the other two go out hunting for more food. Eventually, one of the mice that stayed realizes that he should just move on and stop waiting. This book was telling you that you need to be able to adjust to change without letting it bother you too much. Go with the flow, don't get mad because your BFF is moving. Ever since I read this book, I have been really trying to control my reactions to change. One of my new year's resolutions.

So what book influenced/ changed you? I'd love to know! Happy Reading!

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!

Hopping through. I've always wanted to read Who Moves My Cheese - adult or teen version. Sounds very interesting.

I ended up choosing Twilight because it was one of the first books that I interacted with strangers about. (More on my blog!)

Have a good week!

I haven't ever heard of this book, but don't do well with change, so I probably should check it out.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
