How books influence my personal development?

By Renata Chorobik (1995) LOK Krakow/Poland


In this short paper I would like to describe books influence on my life. I will give some examples of interesting books from my childhood, primary school until nowadays.

Everyone knows that a lot of things and activities can influence on the character, develop skills and qualifications. Reading books play important role of in my life. It has really positive impact on my thinking, change a lot of point of views and opinions. In my childhood I was reading mostly fairy tales, such as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood etc. All of them showed me that there are positive and negative characters and this is not only in a fairy tale but also in real life.

When I was in elementary school one of the book I read was “Ann from the Green Gables”(L. M. Montgomery). Anis sherley

This story present situation of small girl named Ann Shirley, who was adopted and growing with poor family.

Her strength and enormous motivation to read and write (she wanted to be a writer), gave me a clue how I should try to achieve a success.


Moreover during my school time I read a lot of interesting and instructive novels. One of them deserve on special attention.

“The Little Princes” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery), this is fantastic book for everyone who do not really know
what the real friendship is. According to the story, young prince was travelling and visiting nine of planets.prince

He was looking for ‘moral rights’ and he finally found it. He realized how to show his  feelings, emotions, due to his care of rose and mother planet. By meeting a lot of people, tame a fox, hero showed what is sadness and happiness.


Next I am also keeping in my mind stories from series of books about Harry Potter and his friends (J. K. Rowling).  harry-potter covers

These books taught  me creative thinking, expanded the imagination. The main character of that story-Harry was meeting on everyday life a lot of fabulous issues, threats and fight with his weakness to achieve intended purposes, assignments and to reach the true.


Finally I want to describe the recent famous book which title is “Twilight” (Stephe nie Meyer).zmierzch cover This story is about a girl who moved to Phoenix to her dad, and started going there to school. One day in a class she meets a boy, who after a while turned out to be a vampire. And there wasn’t anything strange, but unfortunately they fell in love with each other that relationship was danger for them. The book is full of love and sacrifice. On their way to happiness they have a lot of troubles, inconvenient situations, because of this their love become stronger.  In my opinion it could be romantic love and some kind of modern version well known novel “Romeo and Juliet”. This story taught that love can be really strong. What is more the further volumes show how many things we can change for other person, who is really important for us.

In conclusion I would like to stress that even nowadays books play important role in my life. Reading lot of books provide me with many examples of problems and solutions. From other perspective reading various types of literature influence on wilder knowledge and imagination.
