Hoppin' Happy

It's been a few weeks since I've participated in the Book Blogger Hop, so I'm excited about this first one of the new year. The question this time kind of stumps me, though: Ivan over at Ivan Bookworm asks what book influenced or changed your life and how? I can't really think of one specific book. What a cop-out, huh? Are you as stumped by this question as I am? What's your answer?

  2. I was definitely stumped by this question as every book I read tends to influence me in some way.

  3. Haha, it's okay to be stumped! Some are not as fortunate as me to have one special, epic book to use for the answer... Thanks for stopping by the blog!

  8. 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!

  13. I agree, it was certainly a difficult question; every book I read influences me in some way. I finally picked a book that I found especially powerful: Philip Caputo's A Rumor of War.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. Hopping through. I don't know that any book has changed my life but some books have opened doors to new genres. Like Harry Potter and fantasy.
    Happy weekend!

  15. My answer this week was easy, didn't even have to think about it. If it weren't for Harry Potter, I wouldn't have met some of my best friends and wouldn't have found out I love to write :)

  16. I think there are so many books that influence each person in so many ways that it's hard to decide which one had the most impact. I chose The Giver as my the book that influenced me most, but of course many others stick with me as well.

    Visiting from Book Blogger Hop; thanks for visiting my blog, too (http://desabsurdites.blogspot.com/)
