Ever read a book that changed your life? 
I am sure that you have a well stocked bookcase filled 
with your favorites, books that did and do mean a great
deal to you. But is there a single one that stands out? 
That actually changed you, or the course of your life? 
The book that I’d like to nominate would be “Lord of the Rings” 
I guess that many will say the same. I read it at the age of 
twelve,  and up till that point I had read some books but was 
not really into reading. But boy did that change after getting
introduced to middle earth.
I’ve been an avid reader ever since, and I definitely owe my hobby
of writing to the brilliant Mr. Tolkien. 
I would be very interested in hearing your own nominations,
so please share.
