Book Blog Hop

Friday's Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books.

This week's question:

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

This is such a hard question! I guess the most obvious answer would be the Bible because that book is responsible for my beliefs and faith. However, there are so many books that have influenced me - maybe not changed my life- and there continue to be new books that I come across that touch me in some way. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom is a book I have thought about often and certainly makes me think of the way we live our lives as is The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. I think that in most cases I take away something from every book I read, and am changed a little bit from each and every book.
I have managed to survive the first week back at school after winter break, and don't have anything too exciting planned for the weekend. My husband is gone getting his coaching endorsement this weekend, so it will be just me and the girls. Sometimes this means I can get a lot of stuff done, and other times I get almost nothing accomplished. We'll just have to see how this one pans out.

Stopping by from the blog hop. I read your about me section. My oldest daughter works in the library system. She enjoys requesting new books and getting to read them first. It is one of the perks.

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 –

Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

Thwack! That is the sound of me hitting my head. Why didn't I put the Bible as the most influential book in my life? Good call. Take a look at my choice, which is a pale second at Headfullofbooks. I had a hard adjustment week back to school. Glad when Friday rolled around. Happy New Year!
