In the August issue of ELLE we spoke to musicians, writers and directors about the books that changed their lives.
The humble book has clearly got some kicking power.
And now its your turn. If you have an author you cant live without, a story that changed your mind or simply read something so amazing its stuck with you since, we want to hear about it.
Tell us about the books that matter most to you. Is it the book that made you fall in love? The book that made you change career? The book that always make you cry?
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: THE BOOK THAT, telling us what the influential book is and how it changed your life in no more than 50 words.
We will compile the very best and feature them on ELLEuk.com this weekend.
Go on then, what are you waiting for?
