7F, 3NF; I didn't like this as a metric for myself, because I don't think that the highest value a book can have is "changing my life." The books that most changed my life (by my reckoning) were just the first, not the best. My life will change one way or the other, but that's not why I read.


Interesting, thanks for sharing.

Maybe "life changing" wasn't the best term to use.

> I don't think the highest value a book can have is "changing my life."

What do you think the highest value would be?
