20 Life Changing Books on My Shelf

I’ve been a fervent reader since high school and have collected the opinions and perspectives of a variety of authors and experts over the years. I appreciated Alana Gibbs recent post, 4 Books That Will Change Your Life, and was inspired to look on my bookshelf to add twenty more. While I have read all of these books, I often go back to review certain chapters or sections to be reminded of the powerful messages they offer. Hopefully you’ll find something useful too.
