This week's question is...
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?).
The Harry Potter series is pretty much my all time favourite series of books. I was 18 when I first read The Philopher's Stone. One of my best friends actually gave it to me as a present for my 18th. I've always loved reading, but I wasn't reading as much during Uni - outside school books, at least. Harry Potter not only reignited my love of reading but it also started me on my path to reading children's and young adult fiction.
