The Book That Changed Your Life

This week, This Amer­i­can Life aired an episode that tells “sto­ries of peo­ple who believe a book changed their life.” (Click here, scroll down the page a lit­tle, and then click on “Full Episode.”) It’s a good pro­gram for book lovers, but don’t expect to hear about Shake­speare, Dos­to­evsky, or Salinger. This Amer­i­can Life does­n’t quite do things that way. They have their own unique take on things. But if you want a more tra­di­tion­al list of life-alter­ing books, then check out this col­lec­tion cre­at­ed by our read­ers and feel free to add your own books to the com­ments. The more, the mer­ri­er.

Fol­low us on Face­book and Twit­ter, where we tweet and re-tweet extra cul­tur­al good­ies that nev­er make it to the blog.
