    Here's a topic that might be interesting.

    What is the book, fiction or nonfiction, that you feel most influenced your life, your perspective, your sense of well-being, or your personal growth?

    Any takers?

    I'll go.

    One that comes to mind for me is Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. Many things came together for me while reading that.

    The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint Exupery :sad:

    But I think I owe everything I am to the Grimm Brothers' fairy tales... :)

    I had a series of 8 books with their stories and Mom used to read some for me when I was still an illiterate child... :eek: And I couldn't wait for the day I'd be able to read them myself. :thumbsup:

    A Child Called Dave by Dave Peltzer and the Little Prince by that french guy. look up a couple posts if u want to see his name. these 2 books are just great books. the Dave Peltzer book is just a sad story that truly lets u see how blessed u are compared to some others. the little prince is a great book to reflect on after finishing. there are many things in here that really should be applied to peoples lives. one quote in particular that really stood out for me is this "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye."
