I was all set to do a post about books that encourage and/or inspire simplicity until I realized that aimee over at Cage Free Family sort of beat me to it. Here is select list of some of the stuff people suggested on her blog:
*Real Food, Nina Planak
*How Far to Follow? The Martyrs of Atlas, Bernardo Olivera
*Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
*Like Water For Chocolate
*Fifth Sacred Thing, Starhawk
*The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz
*Outlander series, Diana Gabaldon
*Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Pirsig
*The Passion, Jeanette Winterson
*Autobiography of Red, Anne Carson
*Gilead, Marilyn Robinson
*The Contrary Farmer, Gene Logsdon
What about you, my dear reader? What books have comforted you during dark times; nourished your love for nature, family, and friends; guided you as you took that next step on your own personal journey?
I know that, at least for me, it is all about The Alchemist.
