Sunday Coffee – Change

IMG_9835This week, while reading a book, I had a moment of clarity. You know those moments when a single word or phrase can take the way you remember a part of your life and rearrange it in an instant? An ah-ha moment of sorts, or a moment of sudden realization? Seeing something you’ve never seen before, or understanding something differently?

This is what I love about books. The mind expands when we read.

I’m in the mood for sharing. Tell me your favorite story of books opening up new paths of thought for you. 🙂

    Lately I love it when Mr. BFR and I are in love with the same book — hours of talk about the characters, their situation, the words, the ending.

    I know for certain that Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder opened up my eyes to social inequality, and I’ve sought out those kinds of books ever since. Whenever I figure out what I want my career to be, I have a feeling it will at least tangentially be about fighting for justice. 🙂
