There's nothing quite like getting lost in a good book. And although it might seem like there are too many books to read and not enough time – I think we all can agree that the books that are life changing are relatively few compared to the number of books out there.

I read a lot of books. Fiction, non-fiction, personal development, business. And I can honestly say that these are the ones that have changed my life. Nothing more, nothing less.

I think these books should be taught in schools. I think you should view them all together as required reading to learn how to live.

Because these are the books that have taught me how. To live. To love. To be.

Make a huge cup of tea.

And dig in!
