A few of you asked me to list which books/author I was talking about in this video:
Paulo Coelho - http://www.paulocoelho.com.br/engl/
^ His blog is amazing! I especially love his Warrior of Light section.
Any one of his books is amazing. I've happened to read all of them at the right time in my life, if that makes any sense. If you're not sure where to start though, "The Alchemist" is a great one to start with. Each one of his books has an image of a tree in the back, with a single word describing each book like "Obsession" "Faith" etc I've based how I chose which book to read next by that tree-image and have been pleasantly surprised every time.
