Five of the Most Life-Changing Books I’ve Ever Read

Every once in a while you come across a book that is more than just good reading material. It’s not just frivolous beach reading, but a life changing experience that you’ll be oh so thankful you read. When I find one of these books, I usually can’t put them down, nor can I help but tell everyone I know about them. These are the books that make my short list of life-changing reading material.
