Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is all about change.
Has a book ever inspired you to change anything in your life, fiction or non-fiction alike?
As far as I can tell, no. There are qualities that I’ll read in characters that I wish I had, but a book hasn’t made me want to go out and actively change the way I am because I’m pretty happy with myself at this point in my life.
There have been books I loved, books that I fell in love with, and books that changed my life, and they’re not always the same nor mutually exclusive.
Hmm, I’m not sure if I’d qualify books as “changed my life,” but I do remember striving to be a more even-tempered person during one of my re-reads of the Little House on the Praire series. Laura would always lose her temper as a child but she learned to govern it. I wanted to do the same thing (and I did). Ok, so maybe books have changed my life.
