“Books,” author Stephen King wrote, “are a uniquely portable magic.”

They are both a  journey beyond ourselves and a quest to find ourselves. They liberate us from our own suffering, while also connecting us more deeply to the suffering of others. They help us put our own pain in perspective. They shift our paradigms. They make us question the things we know for sure.

They are somehow both an escape hatch and a bridge at the same time.

If you love to read and find that books help you better connect to the depth and fullness of your own life– this list of recommended titles is for you! Each of these books was chosen for its unique ability to move you, motivate you and challenge your perceptions of what it means to be human. I’ll be adding new titles to this list every week, so be sure to check back often– and feel free to sort the books based on your mood, or genre preference.
