Some of my favorite books have come from recommendations that people have given me. Over the years I have recommended books to friends, family, customers, and strangers on the Internet. I love giving book recommendations to people and it makes me happy when someone comes back to me and tells me they loved the book I recommended. Hearing those words makes me really happy because I’ve always believed one of the greatest joys in life is sharing what you love with others.
So here I am, recommending books to all of you! I have chosen these books for three reasons:
1- I have reread them multiple times throughout my life.
2- They have taught me a valuable lesson or motivated me to make changes in my life.
3- Simply because I love them and think others should read them as well.
I have organized the list by authors last names and genre. I made Fiction a broad category mainly because I was too lazy to separate them by their specific genres. We are starting off with Fiction and then going into Non-Fiction, which won’t be as long as the Fiction section.
