Top 10 most influential books

September 7, 2014 Sandra Dawes

Earlier this week I was challenged to share the 10 books that have inspired me most in my life. Up to the challenge, I began my list. I soon realized that limiting the list to 10 was going to be more difficult than I thought!

Here is my list of top 10 books that have inspired me the most:

  1. The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho (pretty much all of his books that I’ve read to-date)
  2. Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert (read it, watched the movie, loved it all!)
  3. The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle – Not a light read, but worth it!
  4. Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom – If you haven’t read it yet, you should!
  5. A Course In Miracles – every read gives me more insight!
  6. The Power of Intention – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer (The top 10 list could have been all Wayne Dyer!)
  7. A Prayer for Owen Meany – John Irving (remember this book from English class in high school, that was a LONG time ago – nuff said!)
  8. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway! – Susan Jeffers (the title says it all!)
  9. Yesterday I Cried – Iyanla Vanzant (A great book if you feel like you’re alone in your struggle)
  10. The Autobiography of Malcolm X – Alex Haley (the first book I ever read that inspired me to do “something” with my life)

An honourable mention has to go to Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill (Reading the book and doing the workbook exercises helped me to get focused and make major changes in my life in 2013!)

As a sidenote, in the Facebook post with this list, I tagged the authors I could and only slightly embarrassed to say that I giggled when I saw that Elizabeth Gilbert β€œliked” my post – LOL! πŸ˜€

What books have inspired you in your life? I’m looking for some good books to cuddle up with as the weather cools down πŸ™‚
