Books to change your life












OMG, is it possible that I can love books so much??  Or is it the beautiful ugly process of sharing the human experience using the medium of language, that I love so much? The smell?  The reaction? The identification?  The healing?  The sense of belonging, common ground, de-alienation within, the connection? The courage it took to go through the experience and share - the process of the author?  The trust and vulnerability of truth?   
What do you think?

  1. I think it is about recognising your own journey, dreams and emotions in the pages ... thank you for sharing your list Donna xxx

  2. Amazing how life works - I just found this quote and thought it very appropriate ...

    "The purpose of a book is to serve as an axe for the frozen sea within us."
    - Franz Kafka

    How gorgeous!!

  3. ach Donna, I used to be like you with books, but lately I haven't been reading at all... I'm not quite sure why. I'd be interested in borrowing "Women, Food and God" though, if you have a copy you don't mind lending...
