Why do you read? There are so many different reasons: to learn, to be entertained, to stretch your mind, to be inspired, to share in an experience with others or to experience life from a different perspective just to name a few. It depends on the day and the season of life what kind of book I pick up. More often than not I choose a book that will inspire me as I live my life. I want to live intentionally and as a good steward of this life God has given me. I have found so many mentors through books. They have shaped me and challenged me and helped me become the person I am today. There is a never ending supply of books coming out everyday. It is so hard to know what will be good.
I have found that a book will show up on my radar and I will start hearing about it from many different places and when the time is just right I will feel compelled to read it. When I pay attention and take the time I am always blessed by these books. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the books being promoted on social media but it is such an amazing time that authors can share their hard work with us so easily.
Over the next few days I will be sharing my favorite books in the spiritual/personal growth category and telling you the impact they have had on my life. I hope you will share your favorite books with me. It is such a wonderful way to get to know someone by sharing what inspires each of us. There will be links to the books on Amazon but so many of these books can be found at the library, at used bookstores and lots of other places. (Do you know about the Library Extension you can use on Chrome? It will check your favorite library to see if it is available as an ebook or paper copy right on your favorite online bookseller websites. I love it. Click here to check it out: Library Extension)
I think I will go read a book! See you tomorrow!
