What Book Has Inspired You?

I'm currently rereading Eat, Pray, Love because I loved the message so much. It reminded me how important it is to nurture yourself and to never let anything stop you from doing what you want. It inspired me to take more time for myself and to not feel bad about putting my needs first. It also motivated me to write in my journal more, learn how to play guitar (a long-time goal), and spend more time with my friends and family.

There must be a book out there you've read that's touched or inspired you in some way, so tell us about it in the comments below.

I cannot believe I forgot: Man's Search for Meaning, by Victor Frankl. Eat, Pray, Love is a fun indulgence, but if you want to get to the marrow of your soul and search deep within yourself, read this book.

I am also reading Eat, Pray, Love right now and I am really loving it. Wally Lamb's She's Come Undone also really inspired me.

The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls. It's about family, unconditional love and forgiveness.

The Alchemist is a good book. I also liked the Lovely Bones well I didn't like the whole possesion part, but it gave me a new view on death and I liked that it didn't sugarcoat the whole situation, you could see how much the loss of one person destroys that family.

I love to read and am always in the middle of one or two novels. There have been many that have touched me or inspired me in some way.

Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke is definitely an aspiring book. As an aspiring artist, it gave me hope.

Maybe "cut" by Patricia McCormick

One of the most inspring books I have read is "Into The Wild" which was recently made into a movie with Emelie Hirsch. This is a book about a young man who doesn't agree with society and conformity and feels that he needs to get in touch with his natural roots. This book made me want to drop everything and live off of the wilderness except I enjoy my comfort food and late night television! This book makes you realize that you cannot take anything for granted, that life goes way beyond anything material and that sometimes the people who you are running away from are the people that care about you most. Go read it or if you are too lazy see the movie though the book is much better!

Read <b> Interpreter of Maladies </b> by Jhumpa Lahiri. It's a collection of short stories, you're bound to find one that resonates with you. I found "Eat, Pray, Love" too self-obsessed, too melodramatic and it began to bore me so that I had to force myself to read the entire third section. <b> The Fountainhead </b> is always a classic inspirational read as well.

I have been meaning to reas eat, pray, love ... this will be on my winter break list along with Tales of the Female Nomad. The book I read was Instructions to the Cook by Bernard Glassman and Rick Fields. It's about zen teachings, and how the authors wanted to help create a life for those who didn't have anything or anyone.

I read Eat, Pray, Love also, and it's been amazing. Early last year I went through a break up with my boyfriend of 2.5 years. I didn't know how to find any strength in myself. Then I read this book, and I felt like I'd gone through so much of the same things as the author (obviously not going to Italy or Indonesia, but some spiritual and food awakenings for sure :P)

i read this book last year. i was getting out a of a relationship and it was perfect. i didnt like hte character in teh beginning but i began to understand and like her as i went on. it was really great to go on her journey-- i learned a lot about myself. i need to reread....my favorite book that really touched me was the color purple by alice walker. i read it when i was 14 for the first time. a lot of it is quite shocking and explicit. but what i got at the end was a woman who overcame it all thru adversity and powerlessness she came thru and became her own. its a great message and inspiring and is one of those books u can open to a page randomly and get lost in.
