Book Blogger Hop #12 and Follow Friday #7

It's the first week of 2011, and the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday are back! The first Hop of the New Year has begun =]

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books.

What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?

My answer: Well, no book has really changed my life... I suppose, and I'm not shamed to say it, that Twilight by Stephenie Meyer sort of influenced my life, because when I first read it, it inspired me to read more, and because I read Twilight, I've discovered so many more great books, full of awesome characters and exciting plots. It's not that I didn't read before that, because I did, but not as much. So, in that way, Twilight influenced me, but didn't really change my life... But then again, if I hadn't read it, I wouldn't have made this blog, and wouldn't have met all you awesome people out there! So I'm glad I did. =]


Follow Friday is hosted by ParaJunkee at ParaJunkee's View

What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone's book blog? 

My answer: Ooh, there are so many answers to that question... I've been reading people's 2011 Debut Author Challenge posts, and finding all the books on their lists, and so now I've got some great books to buy that are by debut authors this year, and I'm so excited to read them! There are too many books and blogs to list though :L

  8. I have a similar answer to yours. Although, Twilight did actually get me to read because I read very rarely before I read Twilight. :)

  11. This will probably come of something as a surprise but the book that changed/influenced my life (more than any other) is a non-fiction book. I know we all focus on novels and the fanciful fiction we love to read but The Four Work Week is the book that gets all the credit. I know the title sounds fictional but it really isn’t. Hop over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

  18. I chose Twilight, too! It was one of the first books where I interacted with others, complete strangers, on various plot points. It brought in a whole new element to reading.

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
