Give in to the urge

You may have seen the question on your Facebook feed. I did, and I ignored it. But I found it hard to ignore the results when they started popping up.
The question FB posed was about books that influenced people. The collective answer had a lot of children’s and YA novels.
I know these kinds of self-selected surveys aren’t scientific, but I was surprised by how many in the top 20 I would have put on my list, had I made one.
Conclusion? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s time to dust off those YA ideas I’ve never finished. How about you?
