The Gift of Reading

The Gift of Reading

There’s a reason reading is one of our most popular pastimes. It can literally change your life. Members of our site often share their favorite books in the hopes that someone else might benefit from the wisdom they have learned.

You don’t have to be an avid reader for reading to change your life. All it takes is one good book. Start your search today by choosing something interesting at a local bookstore or library. Recommendations from friends work well, too! Keep it by the bed and in no time, you’ll probably find yourself making excuses to get to bed earlier. If you don't like it, swap it for something else. And remember, this isn't about picking books you should read (no one dies if they don't make it through Ulysses, trust us.) It's about choosing something that speaks to where you are in life, right now.

What book or books have changed your life—i.e., changed your perspective, taught you something profound or simply opened your mind to new possibilities? Take a minute to reflect on your favorites, then make a list and share it with the people in your life (and other readers here.) You never know, you might change someone else’s life!

Three Cups of Tea...a book that really puts things in perspective, and shows that one person can indeed make a huge difference.

"One Day My Soul Just Opened Up" I wouldn't be married without having taken the time to read this book, and do alot of yoga!. After 7.5 years, 2 kids, and I am happier everyday I wake up. With myself, and the life we build together.

Gary Chapman's "Love as a Way of Life" is a wonderful book (one reviewer called it a modern day bible) that reminded me of the importance of the simple courtesies that can be employed to create a heaven here on earth. He lists: Kindness, Patience, Forgiveness, Courtesy, Humility, Generosity and Honesty as the keys.

Not PC ... want to read a book with everything possible in the human experience (and supernatural experience) within its pages -- it has changed my perspective on the world, on myself and my gifts, calling, desires. The not so PC ... New International Version of the Bible.

What an invigorating, life changing read. Try it you will like it ... read in very small chunks, like a chapter a day beginning with John or Ephesians. Amazing!
