If you could recommed everyone one book whether it be inspiring/interesting, what would it be?
The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey. It's got that 60's can change things for the better vibe to it I like
Hi Sarah. I would definitely recommend either of the books of my favorite authors Og Mandino and Mitch Alboom. The greatest salesman in the world by Mandino is a must-read. Five people you met in heaven/ Tuesdays with Morrie by Alboom are amazingly good.
One book I always buy for younger family members is Jonathan Livingston Seagull described as "about a seagull learning about life and flight, and a homily about self-perfection."
The book reached the top of the New York Times Best Seller list where it remained for 38 weeks in the early seventies.
thats a tough one ! just done a hub about a few favourites !
Diary of Anne Franks was good, especially for people who moan a lot, she went thru a lot like Helen Keller & others.
Huxley, Brave New World; although, next week I may say, Orwell, 1984.
I would recommend the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill.
'7 habits of highly effective people' by Stephen Covey is a LIFE-CHANGER.
Battlefield of the Mind, written by Joyce Meyer. Great book from the Christian perspective.
The book that I wrote
"Wake Up, O Sleeper"
I would recommend The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason. It's a fantastic book about garnering wealth and it's relatively short too (for those who find reading boring). It's not quite a how to, but it does have tips in short stories about the citizens of Babylon and how they went from poor to rich. It even has tips on how to save and get out of debt at the same time. It is just a great read.
Birds Without Wings by Louis de Bernierre - Its so beautifully written with a great storyline. The story if fictional but the history line it follows is based on fact.
A great read :-)
I would recommend the Bible, because it has all the answers to every question in life that you could ever ask and it gives you everything you need to know to be a successful and caring person in life. Every word in it is absolutely true beyond a shadow of a doubt and it is the only source that I trust for any of life's questions.
Pride and Prejudice, I can read it over and over, and discover something new. Jane Austen was definately ahead of her time.
The moon is down, by John Steinbeck
yada yada filler filler is this now long enough mr. filter?
I would definitely recommend "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee
CITY BOY, by Herman Wouk. It is a well written fund story about two kids from New York who get into all kinds of trouble. Loads of laughs but serious also.
One book, wow so hard! I'd have to say "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk is one of the funniest satires I have read. Its a quick read, but packed with dark humor
I would have to say Viktor E. Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning" which incorporates first-hand descriptions of the Holocaust. Frankl provides in-depth psychological ailments of Man and evidently, suggests that which makes us human that I believe can be summed up in a following quote:
"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." -Viktor E. Frankl
I love the books of Christopher Brookmyre. A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil is a hilarious crime caper stretching from childhood to adulthood. Love it!
I'm a bookseller, so recommends is a big part of my job! I would say that Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is my latest book-love.
John Steinbeck "Grapes of Wrath"
Leo Buscaglia "Living Loving and Learning"
these 2 booked changed my life and ways I was seeing things.
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz = an absolute must read! Life changing!!
And anything by J California Cooper..
The Bible inspired by Jehovah God.
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.
That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
"The Road Less Traveled" by Scott Peck is a lovely read.
