Follow Friday (August 5)

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

I was never and average reader so there was not really one book that lead me to reading. I would say the book that played a huge and memorable part of my school career was Treasure Island. I don't even like the book all that much, but our teacher read it to us out loud after lunch and all the other kids just loved it. I think that was the point that I realized how much excitement a particular book could cause and sort of lead me to want to be a librarian. To this day I still am not a Stevenson fan, but I remember 20 kids piling up on pillows after lunch every day wanting to hear about the black spot.
