As I was cleaning up the shelves, a book "plonk!" fell on my head. Shoot! It nearly broken my specs! Guess which book it was. No prize in guessing the correct answer.

The book was 'Neverending Story' by Micheal Ende. It did not look interesting, and the cover looks ancient. And most of all I detest reading English books. But somehow, something made me pick it up...(Ok, ok...I had to pick it up coz I had to tidy the place).
I glance on the summary. I have watched that particular movie before but never read the book. Then I thought, why not?
That book, 'The Neverending Story' is the magical book that made me a bookworm today. This is the book that's responsible for all my shopaholic rampage during Big Bad Wolf Sale and BookXcess promo.
It's a life altering book as it brought me into the fantastic world of Bastian, a cowardish boy who stole a magical book of the same name from a bookstore, 'Neverending Story' and became a part of the world in the story, Fantasia.
The boy, whom I can really relate to during that time of my life suddenly became a part of something and has a mission to fulfil. The fate of Fantasia was in his hands, and oh, this book is such a joy to read.
There's amazing adventures, a story in a story, and memorable characters that will be a part of my life forever. This is a magical book to me. It enchanted me and turned me into a bookworm. This is a book that's beyond 5 stars.
I used to think that English books are just too difficult to read, but this book made me changed my mind, and for the first time in my life, I started to save my money to buy more and more books, a habit that I stick to til this very day.
Thanks to this book, I am now able to appreciate books and thanks to this book too, I am able to unleash my imagination and travel all around the world without even getting out of my bedroom.
I think, everyone have a life altering book. 'Neverending Story' is a book that changed my life. What is yours?
