Quick Hits 49

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

Have you ever read a book that caused a lasting change in how you live your life? Folks might be tempted to answer "the Bible", but that is not what I am after. If the book was fiction, what was it that brought about the change?

What do you think?
