50 Great Books That Will Change Your Life

Below is a link to a really interesting selection of some “must read” books by a variety of people.
It made me think about the transformative power of a book and time and again the stories that accompany the recommendations talk about a book coming at a particular juncture of the person’s life and letting them see their past clearly or prepare them for their journey ahead.
My own recommendation would have been “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee which is still the most perfectly written book I have ever read and which taught me so much about the innocence of childhood amidst the realities of our adult world with its cruelty, bigotry and problems of history.
Whatever you do this summer (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere) try to make time to read a book whether it be a new one or an old one and experience the power that reading a book has to change your life.
