Happy Friday! (14)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.
This week's question is: 

 Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

Of the books I read this year, I would have to say Tolstoy and the Purple Chair.  It is about how the joy of reading, how great books are and how they can impact one's life in ways you can't even imagine.
Overall, my favorite book is Fahrenheit 451 and this is one I would definitely buy for everyone I know.  It is about a dystopian world where books are outlawed (the horror!) and I just love it.

What books do you think everyone should read?

  1. I agree with you about Fahrenheit 451. I wouldn't mind for everyone to read it. I can think of a few more dystopian classics to unleash in the world.

  6. I promised a couple of fellow book bloggers I wouldn’t “machine gun” my Follow Friday posts on the blogs I visit but this week’s Follow Friday has inspired me to make an important exception.

    The book I think everyone should read is a work of non-fiction called The Four Hour Workweek. The thing is, the book is very well written and entertaining so it reads like a work of fiction. What the book can do to enhance your life and change the way you live day by day seems unbelievable on its face which might mark it a legitimate work of fiction for the skeptics out there.

    If you read this work of non-fiction and really follow the advice it gives and apply the insights you’ll gain, your life will read like a modern tale fairytale.

    I encourage, implore and even insist you follow me back to my book blog so you can find out why I think EVERYONE should read The Four Hour Workweek – http://www.howardsherman.net

    TGIFF!
