Blog Hop & Follow My Blog Friday

For the first time, I am participating in the Book Bloggers Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books & Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted at Parajunkee's View.  If you're a new follower, please leave a link to your blog in the comments so that I can visit your blog.

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question from the Book Blogger Hop:
What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?
The book that has had the greatest influence on my life is the Bible. There is nothing else that gives me new and reaching insight into things that are paramount to my life every time I turn to it. It is a constant resource, comfort and guide to me.  
Another set of books that were very influential to me were the Magic Faraway Tree books by Enid Blyton. I started reading them when I was about seven or eight years old and just fell in love with books through them. I have loved reading ever since.

This week's question from Follow My Book Blog Friday:
What books have you discovered lately from someone's book blog?
Enna Isilee at Squeaky Books reviewed Across the Universe by Beth Revis and I am waiting on my copy right now. She also hosted a guess the cover contest for some 2011 releases that were really cool. I am really excited about Divergent by Veronica Roth and Drought by Pam Bachorz (I love dystopia).

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 –

Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

I don't have a single book to point to. Come by and see why.

I feel like hitting my head and saying "duh" why didn't I think of it? Of course, The Bible! Good call. Check out my lame answer, in comparison at

Books can really leave a mark in our lives. To read what that book is in my life, come visit me at Clandestine Sanctuary.

Dropping by via the hop. I am a new follower. Have a great weekend!
