You never know exactly what path a book is going to take its characters on, but sometimes there can also be something unexpected waiting for you there, something that can forever change the course of where you're going.

Tell us in the comments what the book was and just how it changed your life. Maybe it's the book that introduced you to the subject of a lifelong interest. Maybe it's a book that first suggested the career path that you ended up on. Maybe talking about the book with someone else made you a lifelong friend. Maybe it's simply a wonderful story that taught you something about the way you wanted to live. Whatever it was, share it with us now!
