Article by Wendy McCance
After my last post, I started to think of other books that have really spoken to me over the years. It’s amazing to me that during times in my life when I felt off balance or questioned life in any way, a book would usually appear. Books that have spoken to me over the years have answered questions, soothed rough up feelings and have taken me on some great adventures when life was too busy to physically get away from the grind.
Books that have made a difference to me have included:
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
The Girls From Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow
The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner
The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
and all of the Judy Blume books which were read over and over again.
I would love to know what books have made a difference to you. Did any book open your eyes to a new way of seeing something or give you some peace and contentment? How important are books to your personal happiness?
For me, books are such a huge part of my life. I have 5 bookcases full of books and would like some more space. I can look at the books I have gotten recently and I still have the books from my childhood. For me, these books are a physical representation of all of my years. It’s like a visual diary of my life and I love them all.
