This week's question: 
Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

Easy it was The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken, I remember loving the film as a tiny child and then discovering that it was also a book at my school's library! It was the first time I realised that books were a trillion times better then any films or TV. That was were my obsession with reading really took off.

I haven't heard of the Wolves of Willoughby Chase, but I definitely agree that the books are always a hundred times better than the movies! Even really well-done movie adaptations like Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings... the only movie I ever liked better was the Princess Bride. :)

Following you back, and thanks for stopping by A Myriad of Books!

@Kat Oh guys The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is a classic! Evil Stepmother, being sold into slavery, saving the family fortune! And set in Victorian times!
In fact I think I've just convinced myself to read it again...
