Thank You Books

November 23, 2006

Books really do have the power to change our lives. As an example, The National Book Foundation attempts to illustrate how “the experience of reading can inform-and even transform-the act of writing” in all their outreach programs. On their website is a page called “The Book That Changed My Life” which contains descriptions by recent winners of The National Book Award about the books that changed their writing lives. It’s fascinating to see which books have inspired these successful writers.

We also have a cadre of books in the same vein: “The Book That Changed My Life”;and a second with the same title “The Book That Changed My Life”; “How Reading Changed My life”; and Every Book Its Reader : the power of the printed word to stir the world”.

Any of these sources can provide sufficient material with life-changing possibilities.
