Most meaningful book you’ve ever read?
Tuesday’s With Morrie
Atlas Shrugged changed the way I saw the world as a whole
The Five People You Meet in Heaven changed the way I saw my world and the importance of the people who surround me.
I’m not sure about meaningful, but an inspiring book for me was the Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
Aw, hands down for me; Fortune Rocks.
The Celestine Prophecy
All books by Carl Sagan and in case of a novel I think Fahrenheit 451 is a good read.
T is for Tree
To Kill A Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird and Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum.
Mans Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
A truly remarkable book
When breath becomes air
If this is a man – Primo Levi. First publication 1947. Original in Italian Se questo è un uomo.
The Last Lecture
Suite Francaise by Irena Nemirovsky
That is a beautifully written and very moving book.
@Andy it’s the only book I’ve ever read twice bit haunted me as she died in Auschwitz 😔
I loved Tuesday’s with Morray
Yes!! For me a great book but also my grams favorite and we lost her this year. I buy a copy everytime i find on in the used book store. Also she loved same.kind of different as me.
Irene’s life story is indeed a tragic one. Such a wonderful talent laid waste by man’s inhumanity to man! Apart from the vicious barbarity, the holocaust removed an irreplaceably massive amount of cultural history.
Absolutely just incomprehensible how it could ever have happened!!
I wish it was incomprehensible Ros but hatred is easy to engender and difficult to eradicate!
@Leslie Fifty Shades of Tarmac!
