One thought on “1000 books journey


    I loved Tony Robbins “Awaken the Giant Within”. I would recommend “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. I don’t really read fiction at all but I read this and it’s an all-time favourite, if not top #1 book that inspired me and has many others as well (I watched an interview once with Pharrell Williams where he stated The Alchemist was his bible).
