“If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Some years ago, I asked my “guru”, “Why are you so smart?”
Mind you, my guru also happens to be my soul-mate, husband of 10 years, Chris.
He says, “Because I read books.”
Simple and profound. That quite describes him.
(I see him with a new book each week, sometimes more!)
So I took his wise answer to heart and picked up a book. In fact, lots of them.
I realized the power in reading. I guess the saying “Knowledge is power” is true, huh?
What kind of books do I like, you ask? I’m personally into ones that enlighten consciousness, expand self-love, self-exploration, and creating magic + miracles!
I totally get why reading fiction books are all the rage. I just happen to want some kind of tangible tool or mindset to walk away with when I’m done reading a book.
If you currently looked at my bookshelf, you’d think I was some kind of high-class hippie looking for magic spells to manifest miracles or something.
Over the years, I’ve read a handful of books that I just don’t ever want to put down.
Below are a few of my hand-picked favorites that never leave my bedside table.
I know, I know – I hear you moaning already. “But I’m not a reader or I don’t like reading.”
