booksforabetterlife-v2_650Reading is considered to be a fantastic way of expanding your mind but can it also allow you to get more out of life? The good news is that there are some books which are so good and so inspirational that anyone who reads them can take something extremely valuable away from them.

The Bible Still Outsells the Rest

The Bible is one of the oldest books around and it is still a best seller. In fact, estimates suggest that up to perhaps 7 billion copies have been produced since the very first one. Nowadays there are so many different translations around that very few people on the face of the Earth can’t find a copy they can understand.

The Brazilian Inspiration

Brazilian author Paulo Coelho is probably best known for his powerful book called The Alchemist. It tells the tale of a Spanish shepherd who learns the importance of living out his personal dream. There are some hard lessons along the way, as he is robbed, loses all his possession and considers giving up on his quest.

The Monk Who Was Once a Lawyer

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is another book which inspires and delights equally. The story of a stressed out lawyer discovering the simple life in India is one which reaches out to all of us. Of course, if we are thinking of improving our lives through reading then we can’t forget such long term classics as How to Win Friends and Influence People and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Both of these books have helped millions of people get more out of life in the last few decades.
