Book Diaries

Book Diaries

In my Book Diaries project, I blogged about how each book I read altered my worldview and changed my life.

I read one book each fortnight, and asked myself the following questions:

  • What did I find out?
  • What do I now see differently?
  • How will this change my life?

The challenge was then to implement the changes I committed to!

In my first year, 2015, I read one book per decade from the past 200 years of literature, and in 2016 I read 20th century classics. 2017’s theme was ‘World Literature’, and in that year, instead of being inspired in a random fashion, I looked for inspiration that I could take to my writing – and so my third question was not ‘How will this change my life?’ but ‘How will this inspire my writing?’

You can read all of my posts by viewing the Book Diaries blog page.

The Book Diaries Volume 1: A Trip Through Time (the book of the 2015 blog) is now available to buy on Amazon. In addition to the original posts, it features lavish illustrations, and updates that tell you whether I indeed managed to make the changes I promised!
