Books That Have Influenced You

What books have influenced you?
What books have had the most influence on you?  The things you read do influence your life.  Writing about what books you have found interesting and what you have learned from them can add a lot to your life story.  Much of what we believe comes from what we read.  There was a time in the United States when everyone that went to school read and learned from the Bible.  The stories from the Bible did influence people.  There are many other books that influence us.  Sometimes we read just for entertainment and to relax.  Sometimes we read to learn and become informed.  What you have read has helped shape your life.  Record about what you have read and learned from in your life story.  Write about what books you found most enjoyable to read and why you enjoyed them.

I enjoyed books like "Horton Hears a Who" and "Horton Hatches an Egg" by Dr. Suess.  From fourth through sixth grade we had almost an hours wait after school let out until the bus came to give us a ride home.  There was a library a couple of blocks from the school so we would go there and check out books to read.  When I think back on it many of the books I checked out were biographies or autobiographies.  I think I read every biography in the library on the presidents of the United States.  History and true stories has always interested me.  What kinds of things have you read that have influenced you?  Write about what you like to read in your life story.
One of the books that has most influenced my life is The Book of Mormon.  I have learned many things as I have read it that help me decide how to live my life.  It is something that I have tried to share with my family.  I feel I should write about what I have learned from it in my life story.  If you would like to have a copy of The Book of Mormon to read yourself you can request a copy here.

Write about what you have learned from the books you read and add to your life story.
