WordPress via Facebook was weird on Thursday, so if couldn’t read my lost post – I totally stuck to my schedule, I swear! – it’s up now. Sorry about that!
Today I’ve been thinking about a conversation that I had at a party last night. I was invited to a Clue party complete with a mystery and costumes! It was great and many thanks to the girls who hosted last night. Towards the end of the night, a new friend asked what was our most life changing book. Immediately, I knew mine: The Book of the Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin, Jr. Why? It taught me about grace, friendship, sorrow, loss, and redemption . . . and that I can care about characters that happen to be farm animals more than some other human characters.
The guy who asked the question said his was hard to narrow down, that at different times it’s been a lot of different books. He makes a good point. Jane Eyre, has been massively important to me, so has The Time Traveler’s Wife, Tess of the D’Ubervilles, The Golden Compass, The Martian Chronicles, Girlchild, The Night Circus, The Magicians, The Madwoman in the Attic, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Okay for Now. I could go on. Books are amazing and I feel like a meet a life changing one every day.
What about you? What books have changed your life today?
