- Books, Literature, and Writing
Books - many of my favorites.
"Life changing, favorite books I've read.
I cannot believe how often I've heard the term "Life Changing" in the last several months. From exercise programs, viral videos, nutrition fads to volunteering in disaster areas, everything is "life changing."
It caused me to pause and think of the few major incidents that were literally life changing before the media grabbed the term. It does seem like the media is trying to get the human connection back by running programs that "touch the heart" of their listeners or viewers.
This lens will cover some of my life changing events related to books.
So many books were required reading when I was young. I remember reading them, but not really comprehending their purpose or meaning.
Here are a few:
Old Man and the Sea
Walden (re-reading this is a trip)
Wealth of Nations
Pride and Prejudice
The Scarlet Letter
The Swiss Family Robinson
Anne of Green Gables
Sense and Sensibility
The Writings of Mark Twain
and a lot of poetry
I read the Bible, and have done thorough studies of many of the books. The Psalms are so intriguing I've read books about the books over the years, here are a few of the books in this photo.
Life changing books, periodicals I'll be reviewing in the future.
Comment below if you've been down this path and read these items.
Pulling a door closed on the dream house we designed, built and lived in for 10 months to face a new venture.
Certainly life changing. One book brought about this change ... The Bible.
After a complete turn-around in our thinking ...
we left everything to pursue a totally new life-style.
Before the move
our "back-to-the-land" phase,
here are some books and periodicals used to establish that era for us. (We build an environmentally friendly, wood burning home in the woods, into a hill for insulation, and facing the south for additional warmth. We designed the house, drew the plans, contracted the plumbing and some electric, but did most of the building ourselves with friends.)
Mother Earth News
Getting over the poor choices and the indiscretions of our youth caused a great mental and spiritual search.
Over the years I had a phase I call, "My Search for Purpose" and here are a few books I read in that season:
The Good Earth
Search for Significance
Purpose Driven Life
Prayer of Jabez
... C.S. Lewis books
Most recent books on my list:
Anything by Seth Godin
Re-read C.S. Lewis

Books that claim "life changing" opportunities - Not books I've read necessarily
I'm letting Amazon pull in some books on this topic, and this is my disclaimer, some of these books I've never read, and some of them I probably would never read, and probably would not agree with the philosophies, but they're topic is "life changing."
