Read Any Good Books Lately?

I’m sure Laura will appreciate this clip.

I’m looking for book suggestions. I finished How to Win Friends and Influence people again and instead of re-reading the books that withstand the test of time, I’m looking to open it up a bit.

I have 3 phases in my life that seem to rotate. Sometimes I’ll watch all the movies that I save up on my DVR. Other times I’ll binge watch series that I’ve heard are good. Finally, I’ll read books that help me advance my own personal well being and brain. Here are some that I like:

The Law of Success in 16 Lessons – Napoleon Hill
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert Pirsig
Corrections – Jonathan Franzen
All Chuck Klosterman
A Prayer For Owen Meany – John Irving
Advanced Genius Theory – Jason Hartley
All Malcolm Gladwell
Born Standing Up – Steve Martin

I’m asking my readers if they have any books that they truly recommend. My list is about 12 books because I think that highly of them. So I’m asking you guys what are you favorite books that have altered your lives because they are meaningful?

    Not life changing (in the sense of self help/improvement), but definitely a favorite: The Dark Tower series, by Steven King.

    Something shorter that could take a day is “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom.
    “Waking Up” by Sam Harris is great.
    And if you’re looking for a wildcard I would recommend “Why Buddhism is True” by Robert Wright. Don’t look too far into the title; it’s well written.
