Book Challenge Day 22

Day 22 – Favorite book you own

This is such a hard decision for me. I didn’t really know what I should choose. My actual favourite book, which I’ve read cover to cover multiple times or a book with sentimental value attached.

Or a book that taught me something.

photoI was originally going to go with a copy of Little Women or Emma my grandmother bought for me from a friend, because they’re in pristine condition after all these years and my grandmother loved so much that I love to read.

But instead I’m going to go with a book I’ve read countless times, that opened me up to a world I didn’t realize even existed. It’s a book that’s dog eared, and high lighted, with notes in the margins. Something I don’t normally do.

The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. A book I picked up myself at my mother’s and probably my sister’s insistence and one that really opened my eyes.

It was the first book I read, that I believe challenged everything I knew, and really inspired me.

About Ashley LP

I'm a twenty something who loves nothing in this world more than travel and reading. It is for this reason I run a (not so well used) travel blog, and work as a travel agent. It is also why I run a (more used) book blog. There are two types of travel we can have in life, travel in fiction, or non-fiction and real world travel. I have a firm belief in both.
