The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
How have books changed you the most?
(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
I’ve been pondering this question all week. Have books changed me, or have they enhanced what was already there? Since I’ve been reading and read to my entire life, it is tough to say. It’s almost a nature vs. nurture type of question.
I think books have allowed my imagination to soar well beyond what it would have if I didn’t read so much. I have performed magic, walked among the elves, and visited lands that dreams are made of. And, because of books, I don’t feel restricted from exploring my imagination. Books are my stress relief and my ability to find joy when life is crumbling around me.
That is how books have changed me or enhanced what was already there is probably more accurate. Books have allowed me to think in ways that are not restricted by convention or reality. They have allowed me to soar.
