Irresistible Revolution absolutely changed my life. Literally. It caused me to totally throw away my own plans. It changed my outlook on the real Jesus vs. the modern day "church".
Love this book! The author of it spoke a few years before it's publication at a summer urban project I was doing in Philadelphia, and it was awesome to actually have lots of his stories and thoughts in pring

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is my personal bible. Changed my perspective of EVERYTHING.
One of my favorites for pleasure is The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith was just so funny, inspirational, touching and you just want to hug and drink tea with the main character the whole time! It's insanely good. There's like 5 or 6 of them.
Just started The Last Lecture and have a feeling it'll be an eye opener, life changing read.
ditto to To Kill a Mockingbird
the short story The Scarlet Ibis really touched me back in hs.

Did you ever encountered books that improved your life, made it easier or helped you gain confidence in yourself?
I heard about Louise L. Hay and it seems to be a very good author telling helpful things.
Do you know other books, good authors or stories that are helping to find his own way in life
My mother was diagnosed with arthritis 9 yrs ago. She has always been a very critical and judgemental woman with a lot of self-loathing. I was headed down the very same path.
I came across Louise L. Hay -You Can Heal Your Life and was blown away by the thought pattern she considers the cause of arthritis - Criticism and resentment. That one line caused me to take stock of my life.
I became a bit of a self-help book junkie for a couple years until I was given a Course in Miracles which is the only "self-help" book I read now.
Although I wonder if Curltalk is its own form of self-help. Hmmm.....
I'm reading/doing the Course right now. AMAZING! Talk about life changing! I'll never be the same and neither will my family because of what I'm learning.
Before that I'd have to say "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz defiantly changed how I lived my life and related to other people.
I like to read spiritual memoirs and they help me understand my beliefs and whatnot. A few of them are: Girl Meets God by Jennifer F. Winner, The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton, Looking For Mary by Beverly Donofrio.
And I think when I read The Color Purple by Alice White, I definitely had a lot to think about.
I am a COMPLETE bookworm. While i have books that I Adore *Harry Potter series* among others, I have yet to find one that has changed my life. I can say that reading is definitely a part of my life, and my way of life...
I will def. teke note of these books :P I love taking recommendations from others, esp curlies
