Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop "What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen - at first I was intimidated by the formal language, but once I got over that hurdle the book broadened my horizons in terms of introducing me to the wonderful world of her novels. This was around the time in the mid-1990s when the BBC television miniseries with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle debuted as well as the Emma Thompson/Kate Winslet version of Sense & Sensibility and Gwyneth Paltrow's Emma. I've been hooked ever since.

  7. Stopping in via the Hop! I love Austen, especially P&P....the BBC adaptation is simply amazing. I haven't read or seen Sense & Sensibility, that one is definitely on my to-do list for 2011.

    Happy weekend :)

  10. 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!

  12. Hi,
    Just hopping by and following through!I read all of Jane Austens at school and picking them apart in class kind of ruined them for me, however rereading them several years later I appreciated them much more
