Booking through Life-Changing


Which Book Changed Your Life?

I can't just name one book or specify several.There are many books which influence our life. I think every book we read does affect us in one way or the other. However I will mention poetry here. After reading Robert Browning and Robert Burns, I was turned to poetry. I used to pick up each and every poetry book, I saw in my school or college library! Imagine a science student doing that! The rest they say is history! I am a poet myself, still reading poetry like crazy.

I can't choose just one book either or even specify a few.

After reading your post, I may have to step outside of my comfort zone, and pick up a book of poetry.
Happy Holidays!!

I found the answer to this question easy, I chose only one book.

I am new at poetry, I don't consider myself a poet, but I am having fun trying to learn and write poems.

I couldn't pick one book either. I do have a great respect for poetry and it can be just as life changing as a book and in fewer words. I'm also a scientist (though I don't work in labs anymore)

Science and poetry - that is certainly an unusual combination! I had a little trouble with this one at first.

Ah, good! I love when poetry is picked!

true, every book impacts us in some way, yet some have had a more profound impact on me than others.

Poetry, of course!

Which book changed your life?

I would have to say the Harry Potter and Twilight series because they sparked so many conversations with people I know well and people I just met. It's also fun talking with people about the different aspects between the books and the movies.

Have you ever heard of the Symphony of Science videos? They combine science and rt -- all enjoyable to listen to, and some of the visuals are memorized. #4, "Anthem for Science", has a line from [Unweaving the Rainbow]: 'Science is the poetry of reality.'
