Here’s an interesting post for readers. Late last week the folks at Lifehacker asked readers to post about the books that have changed their lives. In this post they compile the top vote-getters. (Warning: One commenter said that the summaries give away too many plot points about the books, so read at your own peril.)
For the number of hits the site has, the highest total number of votes (25) seems quite small. Why do you suppose that is? Are most people reluctant to post an answer for some good reason that escapes me? Or have most people simply not had the experience of reading a book that changed their life?
Post answers to this question or your own vote for a life-changing work of literature in the comments below.
(I have a couple of favorite, life-changing books, which you can read about on Notes in the Margin’s FAQ page.)
