Historically, and currently I find these books enhancing my mind and wanted to share them with you ~ Some you will like and some you won't. I particularly like the daily meditation books and do use them after I meditate every morning. It helps me to be 'aware' of each precious moment as there are many distractions in life.

  1. Thank you for sharing this list. There are a few I already read and others I'm putting on my "to read" list.

  2. Hello. Thanks for the selection.
    As Francis Bacon said, an English philosopher, historian, politician, "Books are thought ships wandering through the waves of time and carefully carrying their precious cargo from generation to generation." In my opinion it sounds very cool and most importantly, his phrase after a century does not lose its relevance.
    The main thing is that these are really interesting books. After all, to write a good book - you need to be able to write. To learn this is not difficult. Many students learn this even when entering college on the example of their college application essay
