Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 7.

Day 7: What are the most inspiring books you've read that have been assigned to you? 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. 

In 6th grade we read To Kill a Mockingbird in English.  I loved my teacher, I loved English and I think it helped to read this book aloud and discuss it in class.  I loved Scout and her relationship with her father.  I loved the spooky mystery of Boo Radley.  I loved Atticus and I loved the insight I gained from this book.  The way people think, human behavior and even plot devices.

Another book that really affected me was Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko.  After college I took an online class with the New School on Native American mythology and this was one of the discussion reads.  This may sound cliche but that book changed my life.  I knew about the wholeness of the Universe and how everything is related and interconnected, but when I read this book, I really felt it and understood it. 

What books have inspired you and how?
