Writingprompt_bookWrite On! Life-Changing Books

This week’s Write On! Writing Prompt is a deep one, so take some time to reflect and think. Splotter cnahk asks:

What are your stories of hope and inspiration? Why do you read? What are your Life-Changing Books?

 Hmm . . . that’s a tough one. I read because I love it. And that means so many things to me. Like, books take me to a different place. They teach me, entertain me, cheer me up, inspire me, challenge me, and make me smarter. Reading has always been a part of me, I guess! I love Middle Eastern-themed books that tell of different people’s struggles there. I also vividly remember To Kill a Mockingbird jolting my life when I was 12 years old.

What about you guys? Let cnahk and all of us know your deepest thoughts in the Comments below!

    The book that is my hope and inspiration is The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. I read because it takes me away from reality. My life changing book is the same as my hope and inspiration.

    Reading is a gateway to a new universe, one designed just for me. A life-changing book for me would have to be Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Even though it was extremely difficult to understand, Golding made some excellent points about human nature.

    I read books because I can get away from whatever’s going on in the real world. Spending a couple minutes in someone else’s life can really cheer you up. When I’m reading, I’m in a different world, a world where everyone is happy, and where I know there will always be a happy ending. It’s nice to know that, no matter how bad the mood I’m in, someone, somewhere, even if they’re fictional, are having the best time ever.
    Books have changed my life, in SO many ways. I don’t know what the world would be like without books.
    I have too many favorite books to list, but almost all books I have picked up have been worth reading a second time (if not more). :)

    my life changing book is Harry Potter because it has to do with magic. Magic is the top thing I like to read. Plz publish more books about this topic.

    The two books that changed my life were The Lightning Thief and The Hunger Games. There are so many things that would be different in my life if I had not read those books. I would practically be a different person. I will always love those books and will probably pass them on to my children if I have any.
