Blog Hop (14) and Follow Friday (15)

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a meme sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy For Books.
My answer to this week’s Blog Hop question:

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

I read books for the fun of it. I don’t read books that influence my life. 
Books do influence my life in a way though, because its my wat to get out of this world!

And…(of course) its Follow Friday


Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
My answer to this week’s Follow Friday question:

What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone’s book blog?

Hmm, I haven’t discovered many lately. But the first time I saw Across the Universe was on someone’s blog, if not for them, I wouldn’t have come across it!

    Ah yes, I forgot about how books are the way to escape our dismal reality. I love reading too and sort of have one that I found to be somewhat inspirational but not in the usual sense of the word.

    I'm reading Across the Universe now. It's picking up now, but was a slow start for me. I hear it's great though. Come on over!

    I don't know if there is so much a book that changed my life. But I book that got me out of a reading slump would be twilight *shakes head* yeah I know but it really helped me love to read again.

    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!
