On a writing course recently we were all asked to bring a favourite book. And then someone flourished The Alchemist, by Paulo Coehlo. It was a good book to read if you were thinking of changing your life, said its advocate. I should confess straightaway that The Alchemist doesn't do it for me: I can't think of a reason why anyone would finish it, let alone nominate it as their favourite book. But putting my prejudice to one side, it still struck me that something 'being a good book to read if you are thinking of changing your life' is an unusual reason for choosing a favourite of course, she may have had other reasons as well, but those escape me. I began to wonder what other reasons make people treasure a particular book, so I asked around. The number of different reasons given seems to illustrate the potency of books.
