Day 26 – A book that changed your opinion about something the way you look at the world

Shall I make a short list?

Stargirl
Farhenheit 451
The Giver
The Hunger Games
A Series of Unfortunate Events
The Host
Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo
Never Can Say Goodbye
Charlotte's Web

Maybe I'm just cliche, but each of these provided some fresh perspective, usually something to do blessed I truly am.  They also helped me realize how precarious the balance between safety and control is, how delicate the balance of love and hate can be, how obsession can overtake the goodness in our characters, how love truly is the most powerful and worth living for influence in our lives.

I've got two: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, and The Great Good Thing by Roderick Townley. The first changed the way I think about things, especially in relation to religion; the second changed the way I think about books in a light-hearted, magical way.
