Ika (devita) | 19 comments When you finished reading, do you apply the lessons you get from the book to your everyday's life?

message 2: by Tressa (new)

Tressa  (moanalisa) Definitely. If I read To Kill a Mockingbird I find I'm more tolerant of society. If I read a book about an awful mother, I'm more conscientious about how I treat my son. If I read a story about a husband dying prematurely, I appreciate him all the more. I hope this is what you're driving at.

Ika (devita) | 19 comments Yup! That's what I mean. When I read Torey Hayden books, I am learning to communicate better with the autism children.

Tressa  (moanalisa) Readers are always learning something, no matter what types of books they choose to read.

Dan (theancientreader) When I read a book that 'sticks with me' I am changed in ways that I may not even be aware of. I sometimes find that my approach or reaction to some event or situation is different than it would have been in the past and I can attribute this to the impact a good book has had on me.
