What's the most inspiring book you have read?

August 16, 2008 4:38am CST
I like reading and I read different books. I read love stories like those written by Nicholas Sparks. I also like chick literature, I've read the Shopaholic series, Bridget Jones' Diary, Devil Wears Prada and a lot more. But lately I've been reading inspirational books like those from Mitch Albom - Tuesdays with Morrie, Five People You Meet in Heaven, For One More Day and I really get inspired and I feel good after reading them. Have you read an inspiring book that you could recommend to me? Thanks!

Besides the Bible, Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Og Mandino's Greatest Salesman in the World did inspired me a lot to be true to myself and with the rest of the humanity.

I think I've read Jonathan Livingston Seagull a long time ago, I barely remember the story, I can go back and read it. I heard Og Mandino's books are good. Thanks!

I would also recommend Robert Fulguhm's All I Need to Know I Learned From Kindergarten. It's witty, full of anecdotes, not really a soul opener but can make you think. Same with Sophie's World.

i've heard about that, I can try it, as for Sophie's world, I've read it as it's one of our textbooks in college for Philosophy :)

The most inspiring book I have read is none other than the Holy Bible. In fact, it changed my life and it filled myself with positivity. Some of the books that I've read, which I also find very inspiring are The Purpose Driven Life and Our Daily Bread.

Yes, the Bible is really inspiring. I also read Our Daily Bread online, as for the Purpose Driven Life, I have yet to read this. Thanks!

I just finished reading Life Unlimited: When Average Just Isn't Enough by John Bolin. It was an awesome inspiration to live life outside the box. To be the me that God created me to be. Not mediocre, not like everyone else. Creatively, passionate ME! And in the process of living that way we can infect the people around us. We can spark a fire in our communities. It only takes one spark to start a fire!
