Book Blogger Hop

Well, better late than never, I always say.  I’ve wanted to do the Crazy-for-Books book blogger hop for awhile now.  It only last through the weekend (ends Monday), but it still sounded like fun.  I’m always on the lookout for friends and fellow bloggers to network with, so this hop is just my cup of tea.  Each week, a question is asked and all of us fellow bloggers answer it in our post.  This week’s question is a good one.  It’s something I still ponder about to this very day.  How cool is that?  This week's question comes from Ivan who blogs at Ivan Bookworm.  

 Book Blogger Hop

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

Truthfully, I have to say Jane Auten’s Pride and Prejudice changed my life.  If you can believe this, I never read Austen’s book in high school.  I never had to.  Isn’t that tragic?  Anyway, I literally stumbled upon it in a book store – a year or so later.  I was purchasing other classics and saw this one on sale so I bought it.  And that’s when everything changed.  Why?  The characters.  They felt real, alive even.  And the fact that it was written by a woman, living in a man’s world, discussing taboo topics was for me ground breaking.  Jane Austen is without a doubt eternal inspiration.   

Until next time...thanks for the hop, Crazy-for-Books!

Hopping by via the Hop! I've noticed that a few people have chosen 'Pride and Prejudice' as their inspirational book! I, unfortunately, haven't had the opportunity to read it yet! I'm going to definitely have to check it out though!

Happy Reading! : )
