I feel that people don’t just write for themselves, they write to influence others. That is truly inspiring. These writers give up a piece of themselves to the public and they really do change lives. I know personally that when on of my best friends had cancer a few years ago, she loved reading. I always wondered why she liked reading so much so I asked her why and she said something that I will never forget. She said, It makes me feel not sick for awhile. Good books change the world around you, they change not only perspective, but it takes you into a different world.
