6 Books Worth Giving (and Reading)

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

required reading for everyone

Taken to heart, this book is a game changer, offering a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love. Very grounded.

Guardians of Being

for the animal lover

A collaboration between Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now guy) and Patrick McDonnell’s (the MUTTS comics guy), this book is a gentle nudge towards being and presence. Who better to help with that than your favorite animal?

The Time Machine

for the explorer of fantasy

So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes…and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine’s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth.  There he discovers two bizarre races who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well.  A profound book, and one of my personal favorites, you won’t look at mankind the same way.

The Book of Lost Things

for the lost child in all of us

Taking readers on a vivid journey through the loss of innocence into adulthood and beyond, this dark and compelling tale reminds us of the enduring power of stories in our lives.  Don’t mistake this one for a children’s book, for it delves into the mind and shows us the influence of classic childhood stories on our lives.
