Book Diaries

In the Book Diaries I blog about how each book I read alters my worldview and changes my life.

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

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

The challenge is then to implement the changes I commit to!

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