I want to write more about books. When I started this blog, I intended to write about books if not frequently, at least a little more than occasionally. I even made a page at the top of my blog that will take you to all my posts about books in anticipation of this. I don’t necessarily want to write book reviews, but rather to discuss books as living, breathing entities that have affected me in one way or another. It’s difficult, though, in school, because although I am reading a lot for my history and English majors, it is rather unlikely for me to feel inspired by a book when it becomes another homework assignment to complete–no matter how wonderful it is.
I haven’t written about books lately, but I have been thinking about this post from the earliest days of this blog. This is one of my all time favorite posts from this blog, and I would say the first post that I am most proud of. So take a trip back in time to September with me, where I discussed the top ten books that have influenced me most. 🙂
So, this challenge has been going around facebook and it’s really annoying me that I haven’t been nominated yet. I’ve been an avid reader since I learned how to read and quite frankly, I’m a little insulted that no one’s nominated me. So, I’m taking it upon myself to nominate myself and just do it. Right here, right now. Because I want to, and because why not?
This was super difficult and I’m not quite sure if I can possibly rank them from 1-10, as that’s just mean. To the books.They all have influenced me in some way and those ways are all important. So, this is just a list, and a list has to start somewhere, right? Without further ado, here I go!
