Have you heard of this site? YouAreWhatYouRead.com is brought to you by the folks at Scholastic, and offers an online book community that lets you build your own “bookprint” with the titles that have influenced you the most.

Bookprint [book-print], noun:

The list of books that leave an indelible mark on our lives, shaping who we are and who we become.

I read about it in this article, which mentions what’s on Taylor Swift‘s list (I happen to really like her choices!):

Big Bird’s Day on the Farm, by Cathi Rosenberg-Turow, Maggie Swanson (illustrator)

Girl With a Pearl Earring, by Tracy Chevalier

Eat, Pray, Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert

Stargirl, by Jerry Spinelli

Charlotte’s Web, by E.B. White

What would be on YOUR “most influential books” list? Is there a book that helped make you who you are today?
