Think Out Loud #67: The Book That Made Me...

Hello all!
Welcome to
It is a weekly meme I host on Thursdays.
It's fun because you get to do something
different every time you post!
It can be about anything,
so go, Make Art!

This week I am showcasing
The Book That Made Me...
It is a site where you can share
your story of how a book has
changed your life. So cool!

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

High School dropout at 15 due to parents broken marriage and an alcoholic step father, I was sitting in the school library on a radiator, truanting. Bored, I grabbed a book with a bright cover; The Handmaid's Tale. I read it in one big, swooping breath, gulping it in, greedily.

Today I'm an English teacher in a high school. That novel changed my life.

And here is a fantastic video from Neil Gaiman talking about
The Book That Made Him Want to Write!
The Chronicles of Narnia!

I think this is such a wonderful idea!
