A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Two people asked a similar question:
Charlie Quillen asks:
Has a book ever inspired you to change anything in your life, fiction or non-fiction alike?
There have been books I loved, books that I fell in love with, and books that changed my life, and they’re not always the same nor mutually exclusive.
I have read many a book that has inspired me to do things. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This book inspired me by making me realise you shouldnt judge people by their appearance and you should never judge people by what others tell you.
The main message i get from books is how very lucky i am. The two books i have in mind are on a similar theme. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne. Now while these books are on ‘different sides’ of the war, they both made me realise how very lucky i am. I do have problems, but nowhere near as much as people living during the second world war.
