Books That Make the Difference: What College Students Told Me.
Ashmore, Rhea
Forum for Reading, v19 n1 p25-29 Fall-Win 1987
In an effort to demonstrate the influence of reading, a reading and skills improvement instructor asked college students what book made the greatest difference in their lives and what that difference was. The instructor polled 120 students and listed 20 of those responses and their emotional reactions. Book titles ranged from "The Bible" and "A Tale of Two Cities" to "Jonathan Livingston Seagull."
