Soul-enriching reads

I love to read. While I’ve spent most of my life reading novels, over the past few years I’ve found great hope and comfort in what I call my ‘spiritual help’ books. The following is a list of my current favorites, of those that have had and continue to have a significant impact on my personal evolution. I’ll add to this list every time I read a new great one and hopefully you can find something here to help you as well, should you need it!
