It’s been a while since I did one of these posts mostly due to outside influences impacting my spare time. Now, I’m able to sit down and think about what I’m reading, what I’ve read and what I plan to read. One of the things that fascinates me about books is how much they can make you think and influence your life. After all, who hasn’t given a old lamp a bit of a rub in the hope that a genie would grant three wishes or used a stick to cry ‘expelliarmus’ at someone? Or is it just me searching for snowy woods at the back of the wardrobe? After reading Interview with the Vampire as a teenager I asked for a crucifix for my next birthday and refused to take it off for years (although I think it became habit rather anything else after a while!).
So my query here is if there is anything you have done after reading a book? Any habit you formed or anything you avoid? How has a book impacted you? Have you done anything differently after reading a certain book?
